Hello friends! I have some more exciting news for future brides over here at GCP by Nicole. The beautiful and talented Keilia will now be joining me as my second shooter at weddings.

Some of you may recognize her from the GCP family as she used to train and shoot with Gina. Keilia and her sweet family were also recently featured on the blog, I had so much fun taking her Fall family photos. I couldn’t think of a better person to have as my right hand gal at weddings!

With wedding season quickly approaching and summer dates filling up quickly please be sure to reach out soon to chat about your upcoming wedding date!

Hello Friends!

I am writing today to share some news. Many of you may already know this or have noticed things have changed around here at GCP. 

About three years ago, I decided to go back to grad school full time to pursue my dream of becoming a teacher. During that time I cut back on sessions and weddings. While Nicole started doing more and more sessions. Amy was no longer scheduling for us since her travel agency business (Mouse Made Simple) took off. 

Today I am happily in my first year teaching third grade. I am absolutely loving it! With that being said, I am no longer taking weddings and will not be taking sessions during the school year. Over the summer I will offer some session times, and they will be announced here and on social media. 

The change you will see is that GCP will now be GCP by Nicole. Nicole will be doing sessions and scheduling and you can still contact her through the same websites, social media, and email. Nicole is an absolutely fantastic photographer (and friend). Her passion for photography is amazing. I am so proud of Nicole’s work and creativity, her photos wow me every time . I am so happy to have her to take over! 


Hello GCP Family!

I am so happy for Gina and her new passion as a teacher and I’m even more excited to see GCP move over into GCP by Nicole.  It is truly an honor to have this opportunity and I’ve loved getting to know all of our GCP families over the last 7 years. I hope you will all share in my excitement as well!

Within the next week the Facebook and Instagram page name will switch over to “GCP by Nicole”.  As Gina said you can continue to contact me through my email, nicole@ginacristinephotography.com, and the website will also remain the same.  

I look forward to continuing to see all of your beautiful families!


This was certainly one fun Frankfort pregnancy announcement! Little Miss A is super excited to fill her new role as big sister. She is such a happy girl and Miss K is already an expert at this gig. K was such a doting sister this whole session. Helping to make A smile, carrying her around and holding her hand.

This session was full of lots of laughs and excitement! I can’t wait to meet the little guy when he makes his arrival.

Fall Family sessions are some of my favorite sessions. And while this past Fall wasn’t the greatest weather wise, I was still able to fit in all of my family sessions without rain.

The S Family’s session fell on the perfect color changing weekend and as usual Graue Mill was just perfect! All of the yellows, reds and oranges were beautiful in the background of their fall family pictures and lucky for them they live just minutes away.

It was so lovely spending time with them again. I haven’t seen since before Mr T was born and he was so adorable. All smiles and ready to explore everything around him. Big sister B was having just as much fun too!

Sweet Miss H is 3 month old! She was full of lots of smiles for me just like her big brother always is for his photos. Mom had her styled perfectly too. So many cute outfits to choose from.

I just know her 6 month session will be just as adorable!
