Mettler Portraits is a portrait studio in the Chicagoland area.

I am Julie Mettler. I specialize in custom portaits for your home. I have been interested in photography since high school and was an art major in college. I have three children of my own but because of my love of children was called to work as a preschool teacher. I found photography again 12 years ago when I went back to school. It's the perfect pairing of two things I love, children and photography. I have been published in Photographer's Forum Magazine as a finalist in the "Best of Photography Annual 2008". Ask to see it when you stop by!  I am a proud member of Professional Photographers of America. In 2010 I recieved my certification and at that time was one of less than 70 Certified Professional Photographers in the State of Illinois. In 2017, for the first time, I entered the International Photographic Competition and I am now an Internationally Award Winning Portrait Artist many times over. Fun facts, I love chocolate but I might love cheese more. Embarrassing confession, after seeing the movie Jaws as a child I was afraid to sit on the toilet.
