Capturing Memories for a Lifetime

Gretchen Elaine Photography captures maternity, babies, children, and family portraits. We offer all sessions on-location portraits throughout Lancaster County and the surrounding commonwealth or in the comfort of you home (especially for newborns and babies).

Each of us has a story to share. Whether it’s a “day in the life” of family session or celebrating a life milestone, it is my passion and I am honored to capture these special moments that celebrate your life.

I specialize not only in photographing your portraits but also providing specialty heirloom products for you to share these memories with friends and family for years to come. I look forward to bringing your story and personality to life through precious wall art, keepsakes, albums, and other heirloom quality products.


Your Family & Children Photography Experience

The service:

I pride myself in providing the best customer service I can throughout your family or children portrait session and beyond. From your session consultation to your session and photo reveal night, you can expect a wonderful and worry-free experience.

The connection:

It is absolutely important that I have a connection with every family & child I photograph. To make sure we are the perfect fit, we will schedule a session consultation which can be over the phone or in person with you and get to know each other along with going over all your questions!

Locations & Experience

My family and children portrait sessions range from “a day in the life” sessions to special moments in the family and kids’ lives. I have special locations in the surrounding areas that are perfect for families that have different styles and interests. For example, I have separate locations for the woodsy nature oriented families and others for the city living, modern and urban vibes.

Some of my favorite family and children portrait locations around Lancaster County and surrounding areas include: Historic Poole Forge in Narvon, PA, The Please Wash Me Car Wash Sunflower Field in Elverson, PA, Downtown Lititz and Downtown Lancaster, Lancaster Train Station, the Lititz Wild Flower Field, The Marietta Furnace, and Chickies Rock County Park just to name a few!

As much as I love my go-to locations, I am always up for finding new locations in the area. No matter where my families are from, I always find a beautiful location that fits perfectly with each individual family.

I am proud to serve families located in Lancaster County, Elizabethtown, Harrisburg, York, Reading, West Chester, Philadelphia, & beyond.
