Glamour Portrait Photography |Avondale PA

In all my years of doing photography,  for the most part, I’ve only shot using available natural light.

With the exception of weddings, the sun has been my primary source of light.

I’ve learned many different lighting set ups at workshops, and through reading articles. However, I’ve never had the chance to implement them into my shooting style.

I’m soooo in love with the control it gives me & I look forward to using my strobe lights more often.

The photo below is of my muse. My beautiful friend/neighbor.

Professional Head Shots | Southern Chester County PA Photographer

It was such a pleasure doing professional head shots for my CPA Lisa Long

Upon first meeting her she told me she wanted portraits  taken with her gun. 

I knew from that moment on the 2 of us were going to become great friends.

 Lisa was named the 2014 Pennsylvania Trapshooter of the Year by the Pennsylvania State Sportsmen’s Association.

She brought along her baby, BUD E, for some shots too. He’s just the cutest!!

Mother & Daughters | Avondale Glamour Photographer

I was so pleased when Anika contacted me about a glamour session. 

She told me that her sister, her mother and herself were soul mates. Absolute BFF’s!

I could feel the love they have for each other immediately!

Both girls wanted to do something special for their mom. I couldn’t imagine anything better than having a glamour session done.

Sarah Moore did the 3 of their hair & Ren Fox did their make up!

Beautiful women’s, I love family session. You captured all their love and beauty. Great work!

How lucky these beautiful women are to have found a great photographer. In this day of selfies, it’s nice to see real portraits of people. Great job Gretchen.
