Hello. I'm Gena

a few things you need to know about me


Natural beauty is my world

Hello and welcome! I am Gena, a Gilbert -based photographer specializing in newborns. I started my business in Washington DC while my husband was stationed there. I'm excited to transfer that expertise to the Phoenix area and help families capture their milestones. Speaking of family, our move to Arizona is also a chance for me to go back home after 23 years of the military moving us around the country. I was born in GA and spent the later part of my childhood in AZ. I joined the Air Force right out of High School where I eventually met and married my husband. He recently wrapped up 23 years of service. Along the way God has blessed us with 4 amazingly beautiful children.


But home is where my heart is

I began photographing newborns, maternity and families 6 years ago. I started my business with the intent of specializing in newborns and I love it even more than I ever imagined. Being in my studio with a precious newborn swaddled and adorable is truly my happy place...even with the heat required to keep those little ones warm. I truly love meeting and working with new families and watch families grow...thank to each of you who invite me into this journey with you.


I believe that...

The days are long

but the Years are short

Let's capture these moments and preserve them forever in timeless

heirloom photography that you will cherish for years and years.
