I’m Gina (also known as Gennatay) and this space is where I can be creative and share bits and pieces of my family’s adventures through photography. Each week you’ll find snippets of my everyday life celebrating motherhood, family, travel, good food, and life’s simple joys.
I was born and raised in Chicago.
I am a wife to a very patient husband and mom to two of the worlds best boys.
My Dad, Mom and my Sister are my “persons”, I couldn’t do this without their support.
I am a lifetime learner and really believe that reading is FUNdamental to having a good life.
Flowers are pretty, but food is always a better choice for a gift.
Disney World and the public library are my happy places.
I am a vegetarian on days that don’t involve bacon.
The only difference between an extraordinary life and an ordinary one is the extraordinary pleasures you find in ordinary things.
– Veronique Vienne
The best quote I ever read on photography was to “photograph what you love”. The only way to know what I loved to photograph was to take pictures, lots of pictures. So, I started taking pictures of my kids and family. Documenting our every day in the process.
Along the way, I turned into the family journalist. Documenting everything from vacations, the first day of school and holidays to lost teeth, favorite toys, lazy Sundays and everything in between. I want my kids to one day, look back at our photos and remember all the ordinary moments that made our extraordinary life.
With each story I share, I’ll try to break down the photography steps I took and my thought process behind the photos. My goal is to preserve my memories and help others to do the same.
