Gypsy Soul Photography | Peoria, Arizona Photographer

Hi there! I'm Grace Boyd, the creative eye behind Gypsy Soul Photography in sunny Peoria, Arizona. I am a self-taught natural light photographer (who is dabbling a little with studio lights now that I have a studio set up in my home).

I have had a passion for photography for as long as I can remember. That passion has evidence that dates back to about age 10 when I would dress up my baby sister, pose her around the house, and snap her picture (much to her dismay, of course). Then as a teenager my dad gave me with an old Nikon film camera that I used roll after roll of film, capturing anything and everything from landscapes to people to animals. As time went on and I decided to pursue my passion a little more, I came up with the name Gypsy Soul to describe my style and journey. My style is always developing and I needed a name to represent that.

Photography is a constant learning experience and I have an insatiable desire to learn more and more.




People often ask me what the most important advice I could give to a budding photographer and I would have to say customer service. I also work full-time as a cashier in my town's general store and it's customer service that brings people back and the same rings true for my photography clients. I try my hardest to treat them as family, giving them the best possible service I can. Getting to know them before their sessions through questionnaires, emails, and phone calls.

I am by no means an expert photographer, but if there is one thing I know its people and I love to capture their true spirit in my photos.

When prompted to write about my favorite session, at first I couldn't decide. I have favorite things from each of my sessions. However, one recent session did stand out to me.

Remember my sister, who I "tortured" as a baby taking picture after picture of her?

Well she's graduating from college next month and I had the rare opportunity to photograph her. She is a beautiful person inside and out and I jumped on the opportunity.

Our journey led us to a quaint little park in Glendale, Arizona complete with restored, old farm houses and beautiful sunlit porches.

We were even able to stop at a small carnival along the way to take photos.

She has an obsession with carnivals so it was almost as if it was set up just for her.

We laughed and I snapped away. 300 photos later I knew that her session was a success.

One thing is certain when I have a session there is lots of laughter. Whether I have known my client their whole life or this is our first time meeting, I do the best I can to make them laugh and have a good time.


Thank you for taking the time to read about me. I'm honored to partner with Basic Invite.
