Welcome to Gray!! I’m so happy you’re here. It’s my love for photography that led me to start my business in 2013. Teen & High School Senior Photography is my favorite!! I love creating unique portrait experiences that tell your story! High School is such exciting time! Filled with self discovery and style, it's where lifetime friendships are formed. It's a time you will never forget. Thanks for allowing me to celebrate your life by capturing your style and memories! 




My Backpack

This year I started Gray's first Model Team. These models are the faces of Gray! They will be involved in several styled portrait sessions and events during the year. There are so many local vendors contributing to these sessions! This year is going to be AMAZING! Be sure to follow grayseniors for BTS peeks on Instagram and Snapchat!! The Model Team is open to 9th, 10th and 11th graders from all schools. Applications are excepted every January. Come join our team!

Photography is my passion. My other interests include traveling, especially to the mountains and NYC! I love a good movie; the scary ones are my favorite, all types of music, Broadway plays and great restaurants. I am officially a JMU MOM! I drive a grey beetle and love spending time with family, friends and my two dogs Biscuit and Jackson!

Chloe 2017 Tabb Senior

"Going in to my session with Mrs. Debbie I was a little nervous because I usually don’t like to be the center of attention. After the first few photos, though, I was so comfortable and had so much fun! She made it a very fun and easy experience, and she took great photos."

-Kate 2017 Tabb Senior

"Debbie definitely made me feel comfortable and I loved going to my favorite location for my senior portrait session! There are many great shots to choose from, and my mom is very happy!"

-Kelsey 2017 Tabb Senior

"I loved taking my senior pictures with Gray! I truly felt she valued my input and that I could just be myself. I couldn't be happier with how the images turned out and it was a great way to end my senior year.

-Grace 2016 Tabb Senior

"I've had the pleasure of working with Mrs. Debbie twice now and it's been nothing less than amazing! From how thorough she is about giving you all the information and answering any questions you may have prior to your session to the comfort and laughter she brings to the shoot, she and her work are incredible!"

-Grace 2017 Tabb Senior

"Debbie takes the best pictures ever! Every session I've done with her has been so much fun, she's so great to work with!"

-Abby 2016 Tabb Senior

My time working with Ms. Debbie of Gray was amazing! She had so many wonderful suggestions and made me feel so comfortable during the whole process. She was so great at keeping in touch with me, and I had "sneak peek" photos the day after I had my shoot. I had a lot of fun in my photo session and loved the way my pictures turned out...I would definitely recommend Gray to anyone!
