How It Works

Julie Scheuler Photography is based in Decatur, Illinois and is available for senior, children, family, small business, and lifestyle photography!

I primarily work on location with natural light.  I like photo sessions to be easy and fun, with lots of movement and no stiff, uncomfortable, awkward posing.  My goal is that the photos you get back capture you in a beautiful, timeless way that you LOVE!

My business is unique in the fact that when you book a photo session, your session fee includes both your photoshoot AND the beautifully edited digital images from the shoot!  This allows you the choice to either print on your own and upload your images to Instagram, etc., or order professional prints, wall art, and albums through your private gallery.  I believe my clients should always have options that make life easier!  My process is super simple.  Check out the timeline below for all the details and feel free to contact me with any questions.  

GET IN TOUCH WITH JULIE

The very best way to start the process of working together is to fill out the contact form.  

1.

RESERVE YOUR DATE + BOOK YOUR SESSION

Once i get your details in my inbox, i'll send out my online scheduler so you can pick the best date.  If we have any issues with weather, we'll re-schedule as needed.  A $200 deposit is due at this time.

2.

GET THE PREP GUIDE + QUESTIONNAIRE

I'll send over a questionnaire so you can tell me all about you!  If you're wondering what to wear, don't worry...I got ya covered!  I'll send you an online styling service and prep guide with my best tips on outfits, makeup, location suggestions, and everything else you need to know.


3.

SHOOT YOUR SESSION

now for the fun part...our session!  We'll meet at your location and start snapping photos.  don't worry; i'll make sure you feel comfortable and confident every step of the way.

we'll spend the amount of time YOU scheduled for getting the perfect shots, with plenty of different poses and backgrounds - so you'll walk away with a gallery full of images.  Come ready to laugh a lot!


4.

IT'S GALLERY TIME

your images will be ready 3 to 4 weeks after your photoshoot, at which time I will contact you and send you a link to your gallery.  you'll receive your edited high-resolution images, ready to download with a copyright release.  i never force you to narrow down your gallery because i hope you love them all!  i promise to deliver all the best images and downloading them will be a piece of cake.  You're welcome to share on social media, print any images at home, or order prints, albums, wall art with me.

5.

PRINT PARTY!  ORDER PRINTS, ALBUMS, WALL ART, ETC. 

I think printing your photos for display is so important!  this season of life is a special one, and it deserves to be remembered.  i will bring samples to your session so you can see firsthand how beautiful the products are and to figure out what you like best.  if you want to order professional prints, wall art, albums, or gift items...i'm always happy to help!  products can be ordered online or in-person.

SNEAK PEEKS

after your session i'll upload your photos to my computer, and pick out a few sneak peeks to edit and post on instagram/facebook.  These are typically up within a few days so you can have some instant gratification!
