Ella + Will / Decatur, IL Family Photographer

I love photographing these two and have been lucky enough 4 times now.  Meet Ella and Will, my cousins kids.  They are so full of personality and so much fun to be around.  My brothers and I grew up going to our grandma and grandpa’s house every Sunday evening and playing with our cousins.  Now that we’re all adults, I rarely see them.  Thank you Jennifer for asking me to photograph Ella and Will for you.  It’s so wonderful spending time with you and your sweet kiddos and it reminds me of all our wonderful childhood memories together.

Sorensen Family / Decatur, IL Photographer

I loved meeting Kathy Sorensen and Jennifer Raleigh at Donny’s for their planning meeting back in July.  We got to know each other and talked about all the details of their upcoming portrait session.  Erika (Sorensen) Smith and her husband Sam with two children Wally (2) and Beatrice (1) were flying in from Colorado to visit and they wanted to take this opportunity to update their family portraits.  They came up with the idea of photographing at Millikin in the Quad.  Other than the weather being hot and humid and poor Wally not feeling well we were able to capture some wonderful images.  A week later I enjoyed seeing them again for their ordering session and another week later their order is ready to be picked up and displayed!  I love creating art for families to enjoy, they decided to go with metal prints for their wall/easel and they turned out gorgeous.  I can’t wait for them to see them!  Here are just a few favorites from their session.  Enjoy!

I am now booking for fall 2016, email me today (hello@juliescheuler.com) to book your session today!

Andreana + Delano / Decatur, IL Photographer

Meet one of my best friends Andreana and her son Delano!  Aren’t they beautiful?  Every year they come visit us and I take Delano’s pictures.  This year she asked me to create some wall art for her.  I was so excited and even talked her into getting into the pictures.  She has declined for the past three years.  We had so much fun during their portrait session and I love how the images turned out.  Even their pup Dino was photogenic!
