Hi!! Im Gina!
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look at my work! This has been an amazing journey and I'm still in awe that I get to call this my "job". If there is ever any questions about what I do, or how I work, please please please just reach out. I'm an open book and always look forward to talking about everything and anything photography!
So a little about me.....I'm a wife, a mama (2 crazy kids), and have a serious chocolate addiction! I'm a sucker for romance movies, but love and NEVER pass up watching the Kill Bill series. I am truly a people person. I have been since I was a little girl. I love to talk..sometimes maybe too much. haha! I'm also an observer. People amaze me, and I can serioulsy be content with sitting at the beach and just people watching. Details are everything to me...the way the wind blows in someones hair, the way an old couple holds hands, the smile on the lady's face at the grocery store. I notice all of these things. All. The. Time. I truly think this reflects in my work as well. I'm a dancing machine and will close the place down if the music is good. haha. My girlfriends can vouche for that! The secret to my heart is lots of laughs, hugs, easy breezy warm days, arroz con leche paletas, and my tribe. I would say that's pretty much me in a nutshell.
Photography came to me about 5 years ago. I have always been a visual person, but in my younger years I never took interest in how the images were actually made. As an adult, I took some photography classes to learn how to use my camera, and that was pretty much it. I was completely hooked. The business aspect followed shortly after. Friends wanted me to share my vision with their families and so on and so on. This came as a complete shock, btw. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that other people would want me to capture their families. The name Cocobella was conceived with the help of my mom and dad. Coco is my grandma's name on my fathers side and Bella is my grandma's name on my mother's side. I truly believe that they have guided this whole thing in spirit.
Thank you so so much for taking the time to read and for your interest in me and Cocobella Photography!
