A Little About Me


Welcome! Congratulations on such an exciting time of life. You will make so many memories this year. I am so honored that Denise Gammell Photography will be part of those memories.

I specialize in high school senior portraits because I want to empower the next generation to embrace how beautiful they truly are. Real beauty is from within, an invisible superpower. It is active compassion, selfless courage, and simple kindness.

We see thousands of harmful media messages portraying impossible beauty standards. These unrealistic images leave us feeling like we don’t measure up. Purchasing the right makeup, clothes, or gaining the highest numbers on social media will not add to our sense of worth. Those messages tell us we are not enough, that we need to be better. What all of us need to embrace is that we are unique, wonderfully made for a purpose. This is what makes us more than enough, and able to go after after our wildest dreams.

What do you say we spend an afternoon in the magnificent outdoors together? I’ll capture the sparkle in your eyes, the delight in your laughter, and the sunlight warming your back. Inner beauty isn’t something you can see with your eyes, but through my photography I feel it in my heart when I am with you. I’d absolutely love to get to know the real you!

Class of 2017 and 2018 Spring Senior Portraits!


Connecticut Seniors, thanks for such a great 2016! I know some of you were unable to book a session with me since I was so busy this fall. You can still contact me to book a session in the spring. Spring sessions go quickly to high school Seniors who want Senior portraits before they graduate as well as Juniors who know that my sessions sell out quickly and want to grab a slot. May is a gorgeous time to have an outdoor Senior portrait session. The trees are flowering and everything looks so fresh. Just like your future about to bloom!

Let's keep in touch! Be sure to check back in February for a limited offer on Senior portrait sessions!
