Meet Gracie, WaterMARK's newest photographer!

I am Gracie Banta and the first thing you should know about me is that I am a lover of Jesus! I am currently a student at the University of Georgia and studying advertising. I run my own clay earring business called Simply Sufficient Designs ( Each of my earrings are made on a mission to be a reminder of God's sufficient Grace and Love.

Aside from Simply Sufficient, I love taking photos. I work with families, seniors, and executives, and also have wedding experience. I love capturing peoples' authentic stories through photographs.

WaterMARK is a perfect fit! Heather and I have worked together on sessions and have a similar eye, but I also provide clients with my own style. Heather tells me that I am the future of trending portrait photography, and I am up for the task. Can't wait to meet you!

Reach out to me personally at [email protected] to discuss your portrait needs. You can also book a session from the homepage. I'm here to help. 





It's simple. Watermark Photography captures natural, high-quality images as they happen. We specialize in people - families, babies, expecting mothers, seniors, athletes - and we choose to photograph them in all their beautiful and unique glory. The focus is you, your sweet baby, graduate and precious family.

Each session is a little different, but all are designed to capture memories you will treasure forever. Our goal is to provide affordable and exceptional portraits for each of our clients. We will meet with you afterwards to preview you session and discuss your print and digital needs. These price lists are available when you purchase your session.
