How it all began:

Discovering an undeniable love of story-telling through photographs during my early teenage years roused the dream of one day launching an elite photography studio. In 2001, Cook Images, my first venture into the world of professional photography, emerged as one of the most sought-after studios locally and beyond. 

It was in the early years that my award-winning, one-of-a-kind photographic panache began to take shape, forming a concept that I coined, "Magazine-Style" photography, fusing a fluid mix of genres, including journalistic, fashion, portrait, lifestyle, and abstract. The continual evolution of my work, unparalleled technical ability, and capacity to "see" from my clients' perspective were the catalyst in creating, Documented by Hara Gabrielle, a state-of-the-art wedding and portrait studio, debuting in 2010. 

I credit the continued success of Documented by Hara Gabrielle to the genuine friendships built over the past twenty years with my clients. Utilizing open communication, combining your wishes and vision with my expertise, together we will create timeless, custom images, emphasizing individuality and highlighting your personality.
