School Portraits by Gaby Cavalcanti

Modern and Joyful. That's what my Fine Art School portraits are all about!

I don't require children to do a lot of posing, I instead focus on engaging them in the moment, so I can get some genuine smiles and expressions that reflect every child's personality.

“We have been so happy with Gaby Cavalcanti Photography at our preschool for the past few years - we'll never go back to a big photo company after working with her! She is easy to work with and makes the whole process from organizing picture day to ordering prints run smoothly. Our parents love her online ordering process where they can choose from several photos of their child and we've so appreciated her working with us to create purchase packages that work for all our families. She is fantastic with the kids on picture day, taking time to make sure each child feels comfortable and capturing their personality in gorgeous photos that we all look forward to seeing. Gaby's style is modern, yet timeless. We feel so lucky to work with her.” - Pepitas Bilingual Preschool, Lake Forest Park, WA - Melissa Robertson, Preschool Director

“Our school had a series of terrible experiences with established photography services. Gaby was a breath of fresh air; responsive, professional, with an up-to-date approach that takes advantage of new technologies.  She was personable and relaxed on picture day.  The photographs were beautiful!  We’ll have her back forever! “ - The Village Schoolhouse Academy in Issaquah - Raleigh Wilson, Director
