Testimonials from Clients
"I first met Gretje at the South Shore Chamber of Commerce. She really impressed me with samples of professionals that she has photographed. I decided to use her services for headshots. When I went in for the photo shoot, Gretje was personable, professional and very accommodating. The session was fast but not rushed. When I got the final results back, I realized it was one of the most worthwhile investment of my business. I now use her headshots for everything from my website to blogs to Twitter. I would recommend Gretje for any photographic work!"
"These pictures are amazing!! I love them! I totally look like myself -- even though I’m wearing make-up :-) -- and the quality of the photos is absolutely gorgeous. You and Lori are miracle workers. I can’t believe how many I like. I never thought I’d have this much trouble deciding! I could go on and on about how happy I am."
"I have worked with Gretje for nearly 10 years, for a variety of projects from head shots, to event photography to personal portraiture. Every experience with Gretje has been one of joy, ease and humor resulting in some of the most incredible images I have had the joy to own."

I'm impressed with your work, and Lori's, and I really appreciate your talents, and your helpfulness yesterday. You both made the experience so easy and comfortable.
"I love my pictures. When I help people with their marketing, getting decent pictures seems to be a serious stumbling block. Almost everyone tells me how much they hate their pictures. I think I hated every picture that was ever taken of me. Now I have pictures I love, thanks to Gretje and Lori! It makes a huge difference! I want that for everyone."

“Gretje did a great job on the head shot photo she took for my business website. I also appreciated that she put me at ease every step of the way.”
“Gretje has taken wonderful professional photographs of me for two series of business cards and other marketing pieces. Her manner and studio are lovely and comfortable; her knowledge of the art and science of photography are excellent, and she is committed to punctual delivery within the agreed-upon budget. I refer Gretje without reservation to friends and colleagues.”
“I have used Gretje on several occasions - twice for family photos (5 years apart -- why did I wait so long?) and twice for business photos. She has an incredible eye and a way of truly capturing the essence of a person. Whether she is working with adults or children she is able to get them to relax and really let their self shine through. She understands what people need to accomplish with their business image and she understands the emotions people want to evoke with their family photos. This year the family photos were a surprise Christmas gift for my husband -- Gretje went out of her way to make sure I had them on time. He was so moved by the spirit of our children that Gretje was able to capture. I enthusiastically recommend her work!”
“Gretje has worked with me on several projects for my clients, and has also taken my business portrait (with wonderful makeup by Lori Johnson!). She has a natural ability to make clients feel at ease which allows her to capture their true spirit, as is most evident in her Confronting Cancer project and Gay Dad portraits. Gretje is a true professional whose work is crisp, clean and top notch. When she looks through her lens, you can be sure great moments are being recorded.” April 2011
"I worked with Gretje when I needed a professional photo for a publication and for my website. Gretje is very personable and professional, and she put me at ease during the session since I was worried about not being photogenic. I was extremely pleased with the shots she provided to me and, in fact, it was difficult for me to choose! I have recommended Gretje to colleagues for their professional photos, and they have all reported to be very happy with their experience and product. I highly recommend her!"
"I am so glad I had the foresight to hire you to photograph my grandmother while she was with us, now that she is gone. Her response to your friendly and disarming manner is reflected in her expression in the photo we have framed at home, and reminds me constantly of what an affectionate, positive-minded and resilient person she was. She lives on through your lens. "
