About Gina Ayanna


"Whatever sparks the stars in you, choose that, and never let it go.-F.E. Marie.

The sparks for me have always been in photography.  I grew up surrounded by photographs. My parents kept lots of albums, and there were photographs of everything. Those albums showed me who my parents were before I arrived and made me feel loved and celebrated. Old photos and stories are what kept my grandmother alive in my memories, even though I didn't have any real memories of her.

As I got older, I realized the importance of visuals and the power when combined with good storytelling. Today I love that I get to help my clients feel beautiful, tell compelling brand stories,  and capture lasting family memories.

I am a mom of two girls, lover of inspirational quotes, foodie, and a bookworm. When I’m not photographing portraits or helping someone translate their brand, you’ll usually find me in my garden, reading a book, or outdoors with my girls.

I look forward to helping you tell your story.

Working With Me

I believe the most critical factor behind the success of my business has been focusing on listening and delivering a great experience. I spend a lot of time at the beginning of every client relationship understanding my client's needs and what they want to achieve by working with me. I check in to ensure that the vision I've created for the session aligns with my client's vision. I believe that continues to be the thing that helps me stand out. Paying attention to the small details that the client mentioned is always something that creates a great experience.

I look forward to working with you and helping you bring your vision to life. Whether that is allowing you to see yourself in a whole new light or helping your brand visuals reflect the successful business you've built.
