Hi, I’m Jina Bootcheck


Being born and raised in the South, I have grown up surrounded with the beauty of the South and it’s amazing changing seasons. My bedroom was designed with a wall of glass to give me the clear view of four mountain ranges. In the fall the trees with their changing leaves painted a tapestry of color against the sky that gave me a sense of peace. That image is burned in my mind and tattooed on my heart the way I desire my photography to be as it becomes part of the lives of others. My home is in Cumming, Georgia which is a photo album within itself. Every rural road is laced with beauty. I see a picture everyday just driving which give me thoughts and images of the perfect setting for a family session. Seeing the sun’s reflection on a lake creating trillions of sparkles in the water is breathtaking or an old barn with a back drop of Georgia living thrills me. I love location sessions! Each person I photograph brings to life what others view as old distressed and aging, end of time buildings and fences. Living photography at it’s best! Families running and laughing frozen in time.

Seizing the special moment a Mother-to-be embraces her unborn baby from the safety of her belly is captivating and amazing. Having the opportunity to give her that moment in print and make her heart skip a beat is extremely rewarding and gratifying for me. Newborn sessions are always a thrill for me, just to be able to catch that brand new part of life for parents. Zooming in to see the sparkle in the eyes of a bride on her wedding day and capture the essence of love that brought them to that moment is fabulous.

Whether it is a wedding day filled with cherished moments, the birth of your baby, fall with it’s amazing color, Spring’s backdrop of blooming flowers after a frozen winter or a refreshing day at the beach in summer, it is all part of life to cherish and share forever. Every minute of everyday is a page in your story of life filled with special moments that you can never get back. It is my pleasure and passion to give to you some of the most amazing parts of your life to recall over and over as you tell your story in print.

I am obsessed with capturing the lifestyle and Southern Heritage that Georgia offers and I am blessed by God to call Cumming my home with my wonderful husband, Chris and our three (3) daughters, Marin, Olivia and Giana along with our fur babies Ty the Yorkie and Aubrey the Weimaraner.
