Gretchen Mura,

Photographer

Greater New Orleans Area Photographer for Seniors, Families & Couples.  

I am a gung-ho photographer with an affinity for really good New Orleans snoballs. Seriously, finely shaved ice, with sweet syrup, drowned in condensed milk is so good. I will cross the CCC (Westbank shops only stay open until 7) for a good snoball, the finer the ice the better it will be! 

Anyway, enough about New Orleans snoballs. Let me tell you a little about myself. As you may have guessed I'm a photographer. I live in Terrytown, just across the CCC from New Orleans.  I have a married daughter who has moved to another state with her husband.  She left me with her 3 cats.  I also have two of the sweetest Goldendoodles, Fred and his dad Jaxx.

I have always had a camera in my hand.  My first camera was given to me when I was 8 years old, the night before our 3rd-grade class field trip to the zoo.  I have had many cameras since then and lots of photographs in boxes, albums, and even a suitcase. 

I have always been "the photographer".    My daughter and her friends called me the crazy camera lady.  I was always taking their pictures.  I loved photographing my family, my friends, and just about anything and everything that was in front of my camera.  gmp nola colorgmp nola color

In college, I wanted to be a history teacher, but I quickly figured out it was not for me.  I switched my major to Art-Photography.  Life got in the way and I never finished college.  I still took pictures, even a few friends' weddings. Never really learning it, taking it seriously, until my daughter was in college. 

That suitcase full of photographs is my grandmother's, my family's memories, our history that I would never know if it wasn't for those photographs. Let me help you preserve your family's History!
