Midlothian, VA Senior Photographer | Gianna Grace Photography | St. Petersburg, FL Senior Session

Fun-loving, vibrant, sweet to the core. This is how I would describe Ina.

When I asked Ina how she saw herself, she said “Friendly, Kind, Ambitious”. I couldn’t agree more, like I just said.. SWEET TO THE CORE!

In just a short year after graduating, Ina will be graduating again with her Associates Degree in Mass Communications, she has recently been accepted to her dream school in St. Augustine and will be working towards her Bachelor’s Degree in Strategic Communications and a minor in Advertising. Her main goal is to build her own Public Relations Firm. Yes, ambitious is a wonderful word to describe you and I KNOW, with God’s help, you will ROCK this!

When Ina looks for inspiration, she thinks of her dad. She shared ” As cliche as it sounds, he really is the coolest. He is the first person to pick out all my flaws, but doesn’t hesitate to help me back up after he throws me down ;). I am so proud of all he has done for our family, and he how nothing has stopped him from pursing all of his dreams.” She also shared “I know when I go off to college, it will be scary, but I will always have my dad’s voice in the back of my head, telling me ” Sometimes the right choice isn’t the easiest choice” and he never fails to tell me “God is always with me”.

I also asked Ina what she’d like to be remembered for in 20 years.

“I want to be remembered as that girl who was so fun and friendly to be around…and she has really good taste in music!”

There are sessions that I almost cry when they are over, this is one of them. Ina was full of energy and we could not have asked for a more beautiful day in warm, sunny Florida!

I asked Ina what her favorite memory from our time together.

“A few favorite memories from my shoot was when I had my final location at Revolution Ice Cream, and after Kat had asked for y input and brought my vision to life, we sat down, ate some ice cream (of course!!) and looked through all of the photos of the previous locations. Thanks to Kat, and her amazingly artistic eye, I loved all of the photos, it was so hard to just pick a few!! She truly brought my vision to life!”

And then Ina shared this and my heart was so full and honored by her kind words.

“Kat, not only is she the best photographer I have had the pleasure of knowing, I am lucky to call her my friend! She asked for my constant input on all of the different shots, making sure it was everything I wanted it to be. Kat is so kind, in complementing you as pose and look into the camera, and all of my smiles were so genuine! Kat is so kind, bubbly and is one of my favorite Jesus lovers!”

Thank you Ina! So much love for you girl ❤

I can’t wait to see what the world has in store for Ina! She’s a special soul and I know she is going places!


Midlothian-VA-Senior-Photographer-Vinoy-Park-Session_0012We started our session at her home to capture some fun cap and gown shots.


They when we headed out to St. Pete to shoot at the Main Street murals. These murals were such a perfect fit for Ina’s fun loving personality! It is always my goal that every senior looks back at their sessions and they love the location they chose. I want their pictures and locations to be a reflection of them and this was so perfect for Ina! I think the sunshine mural is my absolute favorite!


For the sunset we chose the Dali Museum in St. Pete. Again, we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful sunset! It really was all perfection!
