Thanks for stopping by to say hello!

I’m Gretchen Willis. As you poke around here, you’ll find out more about me and my family, how I share my talents with those in need, and where I call home IRL (in real life).

I love to seek out the beauty in everyday objects. I know that the honest smile of a child will melt my heart. I believe that life is not a race – there is no finish line, just a journey.

I’ve watched my own journey take me many different places: teacher, wife, mother, friend, mentor, volunteer, writer, and photographer. Each stop along the way has shaped me to be the person I am today.

I love photography. It is an art form like no other. It is simple and yet complex. It is patience and it is immediacy. It is bold and it is subtle. Photography connects the viewer with the photographer – it communicates without sounds or movement.

My skills as an experienced photographer allow me to combine my vision of art and creativity with my clients’ hopes for a meaningful photograph. My goal as a photographer is to capture a moment that will be gone too soon, to give to others a peek at their own love for one another, and to to reveal the beauty of God’s creation in the world.
