Gigi O'dea, M. Photog., CPP, FDPE

There is nothing sweeter to me than a baby’s smile, or the look new parents give when they see their newborn go through a variety of facial expressions.  It’s moments like these that make me think that I have the greatest job in the world. I’ve always known that babies would be a major part of my life. That is why I chose to be an NICU nurse, taking care of sick and premature babies. It was after the adoption of my first child that I discovered my love for photography.  After ten years in the photography business, another child and lots of beautiful babies photographed, and I am still as excited about photographing babies as I was in the beginning.  I feel blessed to be able to work with so many wonderful families as they welcome their newest additions into the world.  

Over the years, I have focused my attention on learning and growing by developing new skills, both behind the camera and in digital post production. I strive to keep my work relevant while standing out and always improving my craft. My recent work has focused on transforming my photographs into pieces of fine art and entering my work into competition.
