Hello! Thanks for stopping by. My name it Gena (pronounced Jenna). When I was 17 I purchased a purple film camera which I carried with me to school daily and pretty much everywhere to chronicle my senior year in high school. I spent many nights putting together my senior year story in an album because the yearbook was just not going to capture everything. The photography obsession didn’t end there. I continued to take black and white film photography courses in college where I began to appreciate the art of photography and the darkroom experience. Through the years I found myself peicing together my life story in pictures stricly as a hobby. In 2008, Shutterfly, a major photography site, which I frequented, contacted me for permission to showcase my family photographs on-line and during business presentations. Since then I’ve realized that work and passion can coexist and launched my photography business. I have worked with local event planners, businesses, and families across the Washington DC metropolitan area, New York, and California. I have been the lead photographer and artistic director for bonnie Magazine and co-founder of The 5 Project and have photographed The Alexandria Firefighter’s Inc., Local 2141 Photos with Santa Event in 2013 and 2014. Being a photographer has offered me an opportunity to work with amazing non-profit organizations such as the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria, The American Heart Association Heart’s Delight events, The FILM Project & Help Portrait.
