"We absolutely love our photos!  Gina's work is beautiful. We really feel like she captured our personalities and family dynamic that will preserve this time in our life to look back on for many years.  Best of all, we left the photo shoot all still speaking to each other and without having to bribe the kids. Gina kept it very casual and natural, like a day at the park with an extra friend along.  We can't thank you enough!!!” ~ Sara K

You have more to do than time to do it in, and choosing a family photographer can be overwhelming. The day of the session can be stressful and pressured. I get it. I am determined for you to have a different experience.

When you choose me as your family photographer, I am all about keeping it simple. As your family photographer, I will walk you through each step of the process. We will make sure that our time together is stress-free, fun, and easy. Most importantly, when we are done, you will have an entire gallery of moments and memories that capture your family as you are; connected, candid, and real.

I want you to not only love your images, but to display them in your home; life as art, where you can see them every day. I get it that you want prints, albums, and keepsakes, but have no time to create them. After the session, I am happy to spend time with you to determine what your printing needs are. In a short amount of time we will have it all done for you.

Easy. Check it off of your list. Done.


I am Gina Graham, of lifelensandlove photography. I am a wife, a Boymom to two amazing kids {and one fur boy}, and a general gal on the go. I absolutely love photography. I can tell you all of the reasons why, but you’ve got kiddos on your leg, a meal that’s not going to cook itself, or work to do. So let’s just say that when you book a session with me, my heart is all in.

As for anything else you may need to know about me, I love music, coffee and early mornings, writing, magazines, chocolate, and red wine…not necessarily in that order. 

To get to know me more, subscribe to my weekly creative blog and visit me on Facebook or Instagram.

I can’t wait to show you the work of art that you are! Let's get started.
