what f/stop are you using, what is your exposure time (shutter speed)?
i suppose you will not show the pictures, i understand, but i'm sure you can achieve the information from the exif info

focus on gf, then switch to manual focus and don't touch focus ring
use a small aperture for maximum dof, if you use a large aperture, you might capture your gf, but not you

could be a lot of things, like.. you somehow set it to long exposure and then.. you moved
what mode are you using for this? i find manual would be best
if there is not enough ambient light, then you'd need flash, or higher iso (at the sacrifice of details, and addition of noise)
