a little about me and my style....

Photography is in my heart and is as much a part of me as my arms and legs.  The best part of my job is hands down the people that I meet along the way.  Getting to know someone through my lens is so very rewarding and fun. I feel quite lucky to have landed this cool gig I call a job.  It is really so much more for me.  



my style

Simple.  No perfection required. I strive to capture the real-ness of each person.  I need you to be yourself and nothing more.

I will spend time capturing details about your kids. big gorgeous eyes, wispy hair, long eyelashes, silly faces, pouty lips...you know,that kind of stuff.  The important stuff that you love so much about them.  The things you will always remember.  

I will also spend time capturing the little details I see.  a found ladybug in the palm of a hand, a tin of crayons, a loved 'blankie', a little hand holding a flower, those simple things that made the session special.  These are sometimes my favorite images to photograph.

I keep things as natural as possile, without posing anyone.  I will simply direct you a bit and let life unfold while I snap away.  

Call me, book a session...lets have some fun!

Shooting hoops…..

in my home town with Junior, in his last year of high school.  It is always so great to go back to my hometown in New Mexico.  I am hoping to be in the Roswell/Ruidoso area late fall of 2014.  If you are interested in booking a session, please contact me,  gina@realifephotography.com

The new pup……

The New Pup On our late summer trip to New Mexico we came across this adorable pup wandering the parking area of a busy gas station.  No one seemed to know where she came from and so, we scooped her up and decided to bring her along with us on our drive to visit my parents in the Hondo Valley.  Through the days she seemed to just fit right in and had the sweetest nature with my boys.   Finley is loving someone new to snuggle and play with.  She is a great new part of our family and seems to bring our family together in the nicest way.  I must say it is REALLY nice to have a girl around the house.  Bailey is her name….. Photographing children and their pets is a favorite of mine! I am booking now for Fall Sessions with or without furry friends.  Contact me gina@realifephotography.com for full details.  Or visit my website for a full description and pricing on a variety of sessions.

Soda Pop Stop….

After Jade’s bike riding adventures, we stopped by for a soda at Hey Sugar in Roanoke, Texas.  What a fun place! It has all things sweet and is so full of nostalgia!

Slip Sliding through….

the summer days.  My children have been asking me (for years!) to buy a slip n’ slide.  I made many excuses as to why this wasn’t a good idea.  They are plastic junk, they’ll ruin the grass, it’s a waste of water, the mean mom list goes on, but i’ll spare you….  However, with Fin being my last boy of slip n’ slide age, I thought it might be my last chance to get the ‘mom of the summer’ award and so, I caved and bought one.   We un-packaged the plastic contraption, searched out the perfect slipping spot in our yard and attached the hose.  This was the best 15 minutes of Fin’s week!  15 minutes being the mark at which point you must move it to a new spot before it ruins the grass and wastes too much water.  My favorite image is of Fin at the end….with the grass on his nose.  Slip n’ sliding wouldn’t be complete without a layer of grass covering your body at the end of the fun.

A boy and his bunny…..

Cooper and his bunny, Duke graced my lens recently.  They were both adorable and the sweet connection they had was so fun to capture.
