Hello! I'm Gina:). I began my photography journey in 2013. Before photography and having my children, I was a former Special Education Teacher for 8 years. Once my husband and I had our first baby, we decided to have me leave teaching and stay at home. My passion for photography began there. 

My family

My husband and I met in college and were married in 2010. We decided to start a family in 2013. Unfortunately, my body had another idea. We lost 2 precious babies in the process and I ended up in the hospital fighting to survive. Our rainbow baby, Landon, joined the world in April of 2014 after 2 rounds of IVF. He was a feisty little thing and is still that way to this day, but we love him all the same:)

Before he turned one, we decided to think about another child. We figured it would take some time and a few more rounds of IVF. The doctor said we can try, but most likely, we will have to go back to him for our second. Well, he was wrong and here came Jackson 17 months later:). It's crazy having 2 crazy, close kids, but we wouldn't change it for the world. 

More fun facts

I live on coffee. I love my wine and dark beers. I also love to cook, bake from a box, go for walks, and play fight with my boys. We also have a fur baby Reese who gets thrown in the mix of our crazy.
