"Julia Sternau Photography is about capturing the most beautiful parts of life's moments and saving them for posterity, so that they can be remembered long after the moment is gone." ~ Julia Sternau
I recently beat cancers butt ( praise god) and am living life to the fullest. <3
I love horses, everytime I see one I get goosebumps on top of my goosebumps.
I am country to the core and you will here it in my southern accent so it's ok to say huh at least 5 times but no more , after 5 just insert your own word ( lol)
I love long walks and my kids but the real fun is my granddaughters, they are my way of paying my daughter back for her childhood ( insert wicked evil grin here)
I love love love love to laugh joke and cut up.
now my hates... I hate bees, snakes, spiders and bugs, and yes I am an outdoor photographer... oh and horse flies ... eeeeeeeek... and yes I live in the country on a farm ;) If I see a bee, I will only leave you until it's gone, but I'll be bak! ( eventually ) hehe
I love being behind the camera and bringing out each persons individual self , ensuring to capture who you are as an individual in a portrait, after all it is YOUR portrait.
NO PLASTIC PHOTOSHOP LOOK HERE :D
I am not the run of the mill photographer ,I like each piece of my art being a little different from the other, none of this typical stand by a tree, stand by a wall, instead lets put you up in the tree, lets drag a grand piano with us on our shoot ( yes I do this) I love being silly and goofy and making people feel at ease so that it's more than just a portrait session, it's fun and an expierience you will never forget. Guys.. I love when guys come to shoots with their spouse or mom, everyone knows most guys don't like portraits and don't want to smile.. I guarantee you I will get at least one from this type of guy. Why? because i set things on fire ... "for real" :) I hope to meet you and share the experience with you that is so much more than just getting portraits done.
Located in Columbia, Illinois down a windy road called "Mule" road and trust me it kicks like a mule too.
