Kind Words – Client Testimonials

Our newborn session with Gena was a dream come true. She exceeded our expectations in every way and the images she captured of our baby girl are truly magnificent. Gena was so gentle and patient with our daughter throughout the entire session. She pays attention to every detail and has artistic eye that is truly one of a kind. She is naturally soothing to infants and makes parents feel completely at ease. Gena has an innate talent for newborn photogrophy and it shows in the final product. We cannot thank Gena enough with words for the images she captured and we will definitely work with her again in the future.

Gena was wonderful! Our newborn took some time to fall asleep, but she was patient while I fed her in a private room she had off the studio. Throughout the shoot we could see her calmly rocking our little one as she prepped her for each photo-a true baby whisperer! The photos were beautiful and well done, thank you Gena!

Our newborn session with Gena was incredible. She is a wonderful photographer; her attention to detail and creativity is unsurpassed. But where Gena stands out most is in her gentle touch with children. She was so sweet and caring with our son Evan. As a new mom bringing in her baby at just 8 days old, I was a little nervous – but I was put right at ease. Highly recommend!

Gena was great and so well organized. We loved how she had everything set up online and had specific time lines set that she always met. This allowed us to know when to expect the photos. She was always available to answer questions and had such a good spirit about her in everything she did. We loved our photos and our overall experience. We were so impressed with the presentation of the final products. We felt everything you provided had a little extra touch of love and class.

Gena was a pleasure to work with from the beginning. She was prompt in communication for booking the session and it was very convenient and comfortable to have her set up the photo shoot at our house. She worked her magic throughout the photo session to keep the baby happy and comfortable and put us at ease. Gena was also easy going and accommodating to the few specific shots we requested outside of her normal repertoire. We couldn’t be happier with the beautiful photographs and precious memories! Highly recommended!

We could not have enjoyed our experience with Gena more. This is our first child and we were so excited to document his earliest days. Gena came to our house and gave us instructions in advance so that our son would be comfortable and we would be calm. She was so gentle and caring with him throughout the entire photo shoot, and she operated patiently and professionally the whole time. We loved the experience. The only thing better than the photography session itself was seeing our pictures! They are absolutely gorgeous, and they capture the immense love during those first days with a newborn perfectly. We have been sharing our photos with friends and family and everyone agrees that Gena’s work is fantastic.
Thank you, Gena, for helping us to preserve some of our happiest memories!

Gena is an incredibly talented photographer! I did a newborn
and a maternity
shoot with her, and I highly recommend doing both. I didn’t want to do a maternity shoot initially, but she talked me into it and I am so grateful. She captured the most beautiful moments that I will have forever as a memento of my first pregnancy. And she made me feel so at ease during the shoot. It was a lot of fun and I’m so glad I did it. The newborn shoot was a lot of fun, too! Gena was so sweet and gentle with my baby girl and had all the patience in the world to capture the perfect shots. Our photos turned out beautifully and I ordered quite a few. Everything with Gena was very seamless – from the first communication to responses to my questions about ordering prints after the shoot. I loved working with Gena and I plan to use her again for future family photos. I can’t recommend her highly enough!

Gena was such a pleasure to work with for both my maternity
and newborn photos
. I was hesitant to have maternity photos taken, as I’m not one that loves my pregnant body, however, was pleasantly surprised with the end result! She went above and beyond for our in-home newborn session to ensure our little girl was warm and cozy. I love her style, using neutral colors with a slightly rustic touch. I couldn’t be happier with how all the photos turned out and will definitely be calling her in the future for a family photo shoot!

We had such a fun experience during our photo shoot with Gena. She has great ideas for poses, easy to work with, and our photos turned out beautiful! Her eye for photography, the perfect lighting, the perfect angle, is so wonderful and it showed in all our pictures. She was great working with our kids, allowing them to be kids (as we were on a beach) and capturing so many natural poses of them. Thanks again for great family photos!

Gena is amazing with the camera! You could never tell that our photos were taken on a very cloudy and humid day! That’s how good she is! We couldn’t be more pleased with our photos. She was well prepared and her attention to detail is on key. Thank you Gena! We love our pictures!

GM photography did an amazing job with our newborn pictures! We were thoroughly impressed with her expertise not only in the photography itself but the expertise in the work it took to get our little one in the perfect poses. She was through in every detail and had the best ideas and props for the pictures, making them more then we could ask for. We also had a blast at the shoot! A.

My family and I were moving away from the area and I really wanted some family pictures to help us remember the chapter in our lives in which we were closing. Gena not only met expectations, but she amazed me! The family pictures she took of us were outstanding! Even with my 3 year old throwing tantrums, Gena was able to capture some beautiful moments between all of us. Her ability to catch that moment with the perfect lighting is astounding! She has an astonishing vision as a photographer and that with her understanding of children and families makes her a photographer who I would highly recommend to anyone. I will forever cherish the photos she took for our family.
