Hi I’m Jan Gratz. My studio portraiture for women focuses on contemporary fashion inspired photo sessions designed for everyday women of all ages. It is for women and their daughters. It is for the single woman of all ages, from being a young teen to a beautiful woman in her 80s. It is for the multigenerational family of three or four generations. I invite you to a personal photo shoot with me. It will change the way you see yourself. Experience what it feels like to be photographed with and for the people that you love dearly. Experience what it feels like to reconnect with the person you remembered you were. I will create a photographic legacy for you that you will be proud to own.
"I have had the privilege and honor to work with Jan Gratz over the past year capturing Samantha's Senior year. When Jan asked if I would trust her to capture all the love between the four generations of our family, and share my family with the public, there was no doubt in my mind that she would make it just as personal and fantastic as she had done for Samantha. I am very proud to be a part of this experience, and highly encourage anyone to invest in capturing these special moments. Not only do we preserve the time in pictures, but the memories during our fantastic day of beauty and photography will be something each and everyone of the special ladies in this photo carry with them forever. Thank you Jan! These pictures are even more valuable to us because you captured them with all the love and tenderness your big heart holds and we love that you are a part of our celebration!"

My sessions are about celebrating being a woman and your beauty, empowering confidence and loving yourself through your portraiture. As females, we come in all types … the very busy mom who sacrifices a lot of her wants and desires to raise her family, the corporate woman who works long and hard at her profession, the woman who gives to everyone else except herself, and the shy girl who never felt comfortable in her skin. Maybe you've hit a large milestone like weight loss, a change in your career, battled a life changing illness or maybe you just haven't treated yourself to anything special in a really long time. As women, we tend to take care of everyone else before ourselves. My sessions are designed specifically for you. I will capture portraits that reveal the incredible woman you have always been. I would be honored to present you with images that reflect who you are to you and your loved ones. Just remember that you are a beautiful soul and it is your time to feel radiant and shine.
Each session begins with professional makeup artist and hair stylist who comes to my studio just for you. Your wardrobe will be carefully selected, typically in a prior consultation, to achieve the look you desire. Your session is tailored just for you. We would like to know your desires on your makeup and hairstyle. If you are undecided or wish to be surprised, we can style you beautifully. If you have any nervous feelings as you approach your special day, they will quickly go away as we begin your session. I will be directing you every step of the way so no worries. We’ll share a lot of laughs and giggles, and it will be a memory you will cherish forever. Relish in the fact that this special day is all about you and you will see some of the most beautiful portraits you have ever seen of yourself. That is my greatest joy and my promise to you.
