Gina Barbara Photography
Boudoir & Portrait Photographer
San Francisco . Las Vegas . Los Angeles
Welcome! I'm so glad to have you here.
I have been shooting for 16 years now and specialized in Glamour Photography since the beginning of my career. Today, I bring that style into both my Boudoir work and my Portraits. I am so honored to work with my clients, who come in all sizes and from all backgrounds and trust me to help celebrate where they are in life. Photography can be such an empowering art form. With my clients I get to make them feel seen and beautiful. It brings me so much joy.
What My Beautiful Clients Say...
"Shooting with Gina is more than just fun, it’s a life enhancing experience. Her support and energy creates a comfortable and creative space. I can’t stress enough how important it is to feel comfortable at a shoot, it really shows through in photos. I know in Gina’s presence I can be my most authentic self. Seeing the finished product always exceeds expectations. It helps boost self image, self esteem, and self love. If you’ve ever wanted to feel how empowering sexy can be, this is it. Let her unlock the sultry vixen within you. Treat yo self!" - Lissa
"Gina's infectious energy, uplifting rapport, and fun yet professional setting have made every experience with her I've had an absolute joy. Since my first shoot with her she has been empowering, energizing, and someone I look forward to working with from the day I book. As soon as you enter the beautiful photoshoot location you feel welcome and in the hands of true professionals who will make you feel and look great. She and her team have the ability to draw out your inner beauty, strength, and poise while creating a wonderful atmosphere, no matter the setting. What she offers is so much more than lovely photographs, it is an enriching, affirming experience with someone whose enthusiasm you can't help but absorb. Recently Gina kindly shot my husband and me in a dual session. He had some doubts leading up to the shoot as it was his first time. I told him, "We are going to get there, you are going to meet Gina and she is going to make you feel awesome." Afterward, he said, "You were right, Gina just makes you feel good about yourself, and it must be said, sexy." Whether you are an experienced professional or a normal working human like me and you feel drawn to shoot with Gina, BOOK IT! You won't regret it, please take my word (and the husband's)."
- Danielle & Todd
"When you book a shooting with Gina, you will get more than just a personalized photo shooting experience. Gina is open for every vision you bring to her and will go the extra mile to help bring it come to life. Her enthusiasm for her clients’ ideas is one of a kind and the passion she has for bringing out the best in her clients helps so much to feel comfortable during every second of working with her." - Suprema
"I wanted to splurge for my 65th birthday and have some boudoir shots to give my husband. I was a bit nervous about my age, but Gina was so professional, reassuring and excited. It was one of the best experiences of my life. I was comfortable immediately, she encouraged me the whole way, and I’ve never looked more beautiful. Every woman needs to do this for herself. Gina made it super fun and we did a lot of laughing. Even her kitty got into one shot!" - Colleen
"Shooting with Gina was a super fun and comfortable experience. She hyped me up throughout the whole shoot and made me feel so good about myself. If you want luxurious and stunning photos and a photographer that gasses you up like she’s your biggest fan throughout the whole shoot, definitely book Gina!!" - Nicki
You are a work of art.
A large majority of my clients have never had a photoshoot, or posed, or done something like this for themselves. In our session, I pose clients from head to toe through a flow of posing to keep the body moving and to prevent clients from feeling awkward, stiff and stagnant. I direct you the entire time so you’re never wondering what to do. I’ve been doing this over 15 years now so you’re in good hands!

When you send me a message via my contact form (below)
I will respond with my Full Booking Rundown, Packages & Pricing.
How do your photo sessions work?
I work one on one with my clients via email leading up to our shoot date! I can help with styling and figuring out which set is best for my client. During the session I pose my clients from head-to-toe throughout the entire shoot.
What if I have never done a shoot before?
75% of my clients have NEVER shot before! I love my first-timers! I help through the entire booking process and posing during the shoot. I play music for us and it’s a comfortable, fun environment.
Can I bring a friend/escort with me?
The comfort of my clients is my first priority. I welcome friends/escorts I just ask that they stay quiet and hang out to the side of our session. But they are ALWAYS welcome.
For family sessions, how are you with kids?
When I work with families, I remind the parents that kids have a mind of their own and the more you try to control them the harder the session becomes. So our sessions are 90% chaos and 10% the photos we get. And the wild moments end up being the favorite shots anyways. I’ve been shooting for so long that my family sessions are fun, fast, and DONE!
Do you travel?
Yes! Quite frequently. I am based in Las Vegas but I travel to San Francisco and Los Angeles randomly throughout the year. But I am also available for hire wherever you are! I just require travel costs to be covered.
