About Moonhouse

Hi, I’m Gretchen. :-)  Thanks for visiting my website! I’ve been a full-time professional photographer since 2010 and am based in Illinois. I have a background in illustration, painting, and dance, along with a deep interest in theatre, music, martial arts, and fashion.  I feel all these elements influence my photography.

When composing an image, I like to keep things fun and natural so that the photos convey genuine emotion. My photography “spidey senses” are always working to anticipate great photo ops. I’ll offer direction or staging when needed, but generally I play off of your energy.

I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III with a full range of lenses. I prefer to use natural light when it’s available. When processing images, I make subtle adjustments for a clean and natural look.

I live in Chicago with my husband and 2 dogs. I love to eat and travel and love taking photos of what I eat and where I travel.

Look forward to connecting with you!
