Rave Reviews


Kind words that clients have said about my work and myself.


about reena

RGP opened in June 2010 with their first client, a family of six. Since then, Reena Giola Photography has been producing exceptional image quality which are outstanding in print as well as on the web.

A little about me:  I am a mom of three (two boys and a girl). We have lived in Arizona since 2004 and have lived in Vail since 2005. We have 7 furbabies - 4 Australian Shepherds, 1 German Shepherd and 3 kitties.  My oldest is in the Navy, my middle boy is a senior at the University of Arizona and my youngest and only girl, is a freshman at the University of Arizona. 
I am very shy...but once I get to know you I am a chatter box.  I am a people pleaser  and have a warped sense of humor.  I am sensitive and get my feelings hurt easily.  I am NOT pushy or a sales person.  
I love being a mom, it has been the most fulfilling job I have ever done.  It is bittersweet - I am happy that i have raised such awesome kids into compassionate kind hearted adults yet it is sad that they are basically all grown up.  

Obviously I enjoy photography (ok I am passionate about it).  :) 

My philosophy about photography:  I am invested in your session with my heart and soul.   Photography and your session isn't just a job to me...I love what I do and I want you to love your images.   

My goal as your photographer is to make sure that not only do you love your images but that you had a fun session with me.   I want you to print your images, to have a beautiful piece of ART grace your walls or a fun photo album to look through.   We live in a digital world now but we have to remember that it is just as important to have a tangible memory also.

I have been fortunate enough to work with a local photographer Michael Kloth Photography at our local animal shelter  Pima Animal Care Center starting in October of 2015.  It has been incredibly fulfilling for me.  I love meeting all the animals (and especially love getting to snuggle with them or getting a kiss).   I love knowing that these special animals have gotten adopted, it is such a joy.  


I am excited to talk with you about your upcoming photo session.
