Looking for images that capture the magic of you, really?

My Kids get bored easily.
My partner isn't interested.
what the heck do we wear?

Real life is really fun, even when it’s covered in mud or grass stains on the knees! Forget those boring, stiff photo sessions, and lets create photographs that show the magical, wonderful, unique YOU. Whether it's a family session, newborn session, or branding session; the point is to actually ENJOY the magic of the present. No playing pretend allowed. 

Hi, Friends! I'm Gina.

your energetic, fun-loving
hudson valley Family, newborn & Branding photographer.

I love tacos, big fluffy dogs, sparkles, color, & my kids. Not necessarily in that order. 


Who wants to spend hours in an artificially lit studio playing pretend, in the perfect pretend clothing? Not me. And I bet not you, either. Let’s spend the morning (or afternoon or evening) actually enjoying real time spent documenting the real you.
