Priscilla's adventure began many years ago when she left her lifelong home in São Paulo, Brazil to be an au pair in Vail, Colorado. She left behind a loving family and a great job as a preschool teacher, but was grateful for the opportunity to immerse herself in a new culture and improve her English. As fate would have it, this journey led her to meeting her future husband, traveling the world together and ultimately settling in the West Coast. Surrounded by the beauty of the ocean, the amazing California sunsets and the fresh memories of her trip, she realized it was time to follow in her grandpa's and dad's footsteps as photographers. She picked up a camera and photographed friends, photographed strangers and jumped head first into more personal projects than she can count. Today, Priscilla Gragg is a professional fashion- lifestyle photographer. She sees photographing kids as the perfect fusion of her teaching experience, her childhood memories and her experience of being a mother herself. She currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and two children. Naya (8) and Bia (5) provide Priscilla with constant inspiration. When she is not shooting, she enjoys time with her family, traveling , yoga and Capoeira.
Priscilla Gragg is committed to giving back. Since 2016, she offers portrait sessions for which raises money towards purchasing new toys for children in need during the holidays. Thus far, The Portrait Project has given out over 1000 toys! The project donates to different organizations every year, such as Tiyya, Alameda County Health Start Initiative, Contra Costa County Black Infant Health Program and to foster children in the local community.
