Christmas Session - Newborn Christmas Photos

December 23, 2015  •  2 Comments

Ahh, just look at them!  This family is seriously gorgeous, and so sweet too!  Baby C didn't arrive until after our Santa mini sessions, so we planned a Christmas themed newborn session so his parents will be able to remember just how teeny tiny he was for his First Christmas!  At the end of the session, he modeled an adorable little hat that was made by his talented mommy!  I love it when we are able to incorporate personal pieces that clients bring along!

Christmas Sessions Part 1 - Santa Claus Mini Sessions

December 22, 2015  •  1 Comment


The most magical day!  I just love our Mini sessions with Santa Claus!  There is nothing like seeing the magic in the children's eyes while meeting the man in red and chatting with him!  The parents and kids love it because each family has their own time to talk to Santa, read stories, go over their wish lists, and ask him anything they want.  Here is some of the fun we had this year!

1st time meeting Santa!Baby's First Christmas

It's that time of year again!  It seems like school just started, but before you know it Christmas will be here!  To make things a little easier on you, I have some ways to check off a few things on your holiday to-do list!  
Santa will be coming to Gretchen Noelle Photography again this year for our Christmas mini sessions!  We had so much fun last year, and it was such a magical experience for all of the children.  They were able to sit down with the man in red and share their wish list with him, read stories, check to see if they were on the "nice" list, and so much more!  All this, while I was able to capture these moments that will be treasured for a lifetime!
Skip the lines at the mall, and come join us for an event you and your kids will never forget!  I will also have at least one other setup available to use for portraits (besides my Santa setup).  
The date is November 7th, from 10:00 - 3:00.  20 minute sessions will be booked every half hour.  The session fee is $200, and is required to hold your spot.  An online gallery of 10-15 edited images will be presented for you to choose your photos. Packages will include digital images AND custom designed Holiday Cards!  
You can schedule your session here:
(If a time is not shown, it has already been booked)
  1. Visit with Santa - check!
  2. Holiday photos - check!
  3. Christmas cards -check!
And just like that, three things checked off your list!  Hope to see you!
Here's a glimpse of our fun from last year!

Ashtyn turns one!! - Michigan Baby Photographer

May 14, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I absolutely love having the opportunity to photograph the first year of a baby's life!  Here is my cousin's sweet baby, Ashtyn, and their beautiful family.  Ashtyn has two other girl cousins that were born within months of her - one being my own daughter!  It is going to be so much fun watching them grow up together!  I can't believe how fast this year has gone by, and I'm sure my cousin Whitney feels the same!
