Little child Gina with a film camera in your hand snapping away childhood moments of family, sisters and friends of vacations and moments you wanted to remember…know that with each click you are instilling a passion inside your soul that has not yet awoken to realize it’s potential. Know little Gina that one day you will let free that spark that is quietly burning deep within your soul.

You’ll find your passion within your everyday moments and within those powerful and beautiful mountains. Embrace that and run with it. But when you are running remember to follow your dreams with confidence. Do not compare. Never compare.Don’t look to others to help you find yourself.
