I AM GLORIA, BUT YOU CAN CALL ME GLO.

I am an unapologetic dose of emotion.

A self-proclaimed dreamer, t-shirt wearing , fiercely loyal, lover of shadows, chaser of light, and the heart and soul behind Gloria Francis Photography. This business that I love so much evolved gradually from my heart and it is simply who I am: a balance between soulful and artistic, vibrance and warmth.

I am married to a bearded computer nerd who fills me to the brim with love despite all my crazy (and sometimes unreasonable) requests. Supporting the wants of a left-brained dreamer is not easy but yet, he does, he gives, and isn't fazed by it. On days that life becomes too overwhelming for my sensitive heart he has the magical way of making me feel alive.

He is the Jim to my Pam and I love LOVE with him!


OUR SYNCHRONIZED HEARTS

We are proud parents to an almost teenager who is full of passion for flamenco, a spunky eight year old who loves to dream out loud and is made up of all sorts of quirkiness, a three-nager who has the innate ability to make me pause on a whim, and their brother from another mother, Uno, a dapper decade-old miniature schnauzer that makes life a bit more beautiful for us. 


While we call the San Francisco Bay Area our home, there is a particular place in the world that holds so many firsts & constantly tugs at our heartstrings: MIami, FL.

I make my way back to sunny south florida 3-5 times a year, so if you are getting married there you will not have to pay for extra travel fees when you book me! YAY!

Thinking of a session next time I am in florida? HEre are my SOUTH FLORIDA TRAVEL DATES for this year:

SEPTEMBER 18-24, 2019


MY HUMBLE AMBITION

Is to create emotion-filled, vibrant, and artistic images that help me bring your soul to light, wrapped in the moment, and share honest affection.

BUT I NEED ALL OF YOU...

The truth is that my effort is minimal when you want it as much as I do. When you are willing to let your YOU unfold.

When there is trust, mine and yours, beauty follows.


I AM NOT FOR EVERYONE & THAT'S OKAY!


If you're 𝐨𝐩𝐞𝐧 to getting dirty, letting me third wheel your 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞 session, allowing your babies to 𝐫𝐮𝐧 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐝, show 𝐞𝐱𝐭𝐫𝐚 amounts of 𝐚𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 for the one you love, 𝐜𝐥𝐢𝐦𝐛 a hill & 𝐝𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 right on top of it, are 𝐝𝐫𝐚𝐰𝐧 to and 𝐦𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐝 by my images, then I am 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒔 & 𝒚𝒐𝒖 are 𝒎𝒊𝒏𝒆.
