Experiences of Our Boutique Family Portrait Studio

The GES mission was sparked by two of our favorite quotes and helps to bring to life our tagline YOUR FAMILY IS THE ART of YOUR HOME.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching the heart, of loving the soul.  What you have caught on film is captured forever.  It remembers little things long after you have forgotten everything.”  Aaron Siskind

“Photography is an art of observation.  We have found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them”. Elliott Erwitt

As a Certified Photographer with over ten years of experience, we are honored to be recognized as one of the top Portrait Photographers in the Atlanta Area by

Here at GES, we offer two options to our families, Creative Portraits and Fine Art Portraits.

Creative Portraits pulls the personalities of your family together. For example, who is the boss in your family? We all know every family has one. Or, who is the silly one? Who is the serious one?  Sure we have some posey posey images to capture too, but the creative images are what tell YOUR family’s story. Capturing your family’s emotions, expressions and the dynamics of what makes your family, YOUR family is our main mission.

Fine Art Portraits, including Painterly Portraits, is where imagination comes into the session. The photographer creates the art by converting the subject into an artistic statement.  Depending on the approach,  a vintage wardrobe may be in the mix. Or maybe it is more intentional lighting that creates the look and what the artist is trying to create.

“With a family of 6 and two bonus sons, we found it hard to find a studio to accommodate all of us for a professional shoot. Not only were Gary and Elaine totally professional and knowledgeable about photography, they made us feel right at home during our shoot! Carla I.

“Gary and Elaine are amazing. They were so kind and patient with us it was great. We didn’t feel rushed, and we took our time getting through everything. My daughters said they feel like they are models now because the photos came out so good. I would highly recommend them for any family photos or individual photos. Their studio is also beautiful.” Rosalind H.

“I cannot say enough about the professionalism and attention to detail that Gary and Elaine displayed during our recent newborn photos. They did a wonderful job of making sure that my vision for the shoot was executed. They were both so patient and loving with my little one. Tashana T.
