Her pictures are so clear they look like 3D. I’m so impressed with my headshot, and it’s getting rave reviews.

Gretchen is wonderful to work with. She really knows how to bring the best life to her work. She was very warm and encouraging, and she knew how to get the best spontaneity out of my looks. On top of that, she has a great feel for what to emulate for today's acting industry. I would recommend her to anyone. More...

I’ve been acting professionally now for nearly 20 years. The headshots I’ve just had taken with Gretchen are by far the best I’ve ever had. The 15 minute free consultation before the session was invaluable, and went far longer than 15 minutes! Gretchen is a true professional and now a friend. You will not be disappointed, I promise!

Gretchen helped us take the most fabulous headshots for my 9 year old daughter who had just signed with a new agent. She allowed us to use multiple outfits and we had so many great pics to choose from it was mind boggling! She has a great eye.

Gretchen knows her artistry well, and can easily translate her client's needs/desires into the product and vision they are hoping to capture. Her eye is sharp and collaborative! Most importantly, her aesthetic promotes artistic freedom and expression! More...

I’ve worked with a lot of great photographers in Chicago. Gretchen was genuinely interested in understanding my personality and captured that on film. I haven’t seen the end product yet but I saw the previews on the camera and they were terrific. More...

Gretchen is wonderful! A fantastic photographer and a lovely human. I've tried several headshot photographers but I felt the most comfortable with Gretchen and that is definitely reflected in my shots. I would highly recommend her!

Gretchen was so great! Very reasonably priced as far as headshot photographers go, and I was so happy with how they came out. She did a great job listening and discussing what I was looking for, and made me feel very comfortable during the shoot. More...

Go with Gretchen! She made the scary process of getting headshots done effortless and fun. She’s very easy going and I was able to relax and focus on the camera and not my nerves. She went above and beyond, fixing my hair anytime it fell out of place and giving gentle direction to create a range of shots from serious to smiling. My edits came back quickly and they are professional and natural looking. So glad I had the opportunity to work with her. More...

Gretchen created fantastic corporate headshots for our new website and we can't recommend her enough! Gretchen came to our office and made us all feel relaxed during the shoot and was so friendly and easy to work with from our very first meeting. The photos look beautiful and she really captured the personality of everyone on our team. More...

Headshots can be a young actor's nightmare but Gretchen made this experience a breeze. She made me feel like I had a friend behind the camera and gave the perfect amount of direction. Not only am I satisfied with the final product but I had a hard time deciding from the proofs because they were so versatile!! Thank you, Gretchen! More...

Gretchen did promo photos for our band, and we couldn't love her more. She suggested locations and outfits, was super-flexible, and made everyone feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She got proofs to us at lightning speed and we got tons of great shots. Also, you will love hanging out with her. Thank you Gretchen!!! More...

Gretchen was awesome to work with. She took the time to understand the types of images I needed and even took charge rearranging my space to capture the perfect shot. I was very happy with my final photos and will definitely use Gretchen Kelley again. More...

I was very lucky to have a flash session with Gretchen, she has a very positive energy and knows exactly how to take the right picture. She makes you feel very comfortable and really pays attention to detail. She really listens to you and, as the session progresses, she makes sure she is getting different shots to show you and get some feedback until you get THE ONE. Having your headshot taken can be very stressful, you have to find the right person to guide you and make you feel at ease, and the right person is Gretchen; she makes it feel super easy and effortless! It was a beautiful collaboration. I would definitely recommend her and go back to her in the future. More...

I could not be happier with Gretchen, the session, and the final result! So many excellent shots to choose from. I actually selected six looks which I know will serve me well in all the days ahead. Every bit of feedback has been Wow! Who took these? They're terrific! Thanks Gretchen!!! More...

Gretchen cultivated a warm & welcoming environment, trying to set me up for success. We talked before the shoot about how she approaches the goal from the photographers side and what I, as an actor, would be bringing to the table. Proofs came fast and I was very happy with my final selections! Two thumbs up! More...

Flat out best photographer I have ever worked with. She came to our home in the suburbs for an extra $25 (well worth it, IMO) and was very friendly and easy to talk to. The resulting photos from our session, however, were beyond great - I have received countless compliments on these photos from friends. She does great things with color in the photos and brings out the best in the people and settings. Highly recommend! More...

Gretchen photographed our family recently and did a fantastic job. She captured some great candid and posed moments. She has a knack for framing shots beautifully too! She met us at a location of our choice, which was so much more relaxed than a formal studio, and she was great with kids! Overall we were very pleased with her work and the photos. Thanks! More...
