ADINA: CLASS OF 2016 | Central Illinois Senior Portrait Photographer

Another one of my 2016 seniors who was one of my own!! And my last for 2015!  I am so happy to share sweet Adina with you!  This young woman is quite special to me (as they all are).  She really worked her way into my heart during my time with her, and I am SO excited for her future!
Adina is quiet, and soft spoken, and incredibly intelligent, and sweet.  She is a great friend, and talented, and an artist.  She is a reader…I always LOVE a reader.  And she has a brilliant future ahead of her.  I am not sure if she knows (at all) how wonderful she is, or how well liked.  And while less important than her multitude of wonderful inner characteristics…she is also an enormous beauty. And she definitely has no clue about that!  Meet Adina:Washington Park Senior Photographer_0001Washington Park Senior Photographer_0002She just has such a beautifully expressive face!Washington Park Senior Photographer_0004Washington Park Senior Photographer_0005Washington Park Senior Photographer_0003This color!!!Washington Park Senior Photographer_0007Washington Park Senior Photographer_0006Washington Park Senior Photographer_0008Washington Park Senior Photographer_0009Serious beauty here.Washington Park Senior Photographer_0010Washington Park Senior Photographer_0011Washington Park Senior Photographer_0013Favorite!Washington Park Senior Photographer_0012Washington Park Senior Photographer_0015Washington Park Senior Photographer_0014Washington Park Senior Photographer_0016Washington Park Senior Photographer_0017Washington Park Senior Photographer_0018Washington Park Senior Photographer_0019Washington Park Senior Photographer_0020Washington Park Senior Photographer_0021Washington Park Senior Photographer_0022LOVE.THESE.GIRLS!  Thank you so much for letting me do this, Adina!!

I'm Jill, a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Chicago and Central Illinois, and available world wide! I'm also a photography educator, wife to my favorite person on the planet, mama to 3 amazing kids and an energetic Aussie, and obsessed with statement jewelry and all desserts (especially fruit pies!). 

As a past high school teacher, I have a major heart for education. After going full time in my business, I have built a business I love that gives me an almost 6 figure salary and allows me to be home part time with my kids.  I dream for you to run a business that enhances your life and lights you up, and I believe I can help you learn how to do it with a little hustle and a lot of heart!

Hello Friend!

Are you a mom/hobbyist?

You're in the right place!  As a past high school teacher, educating others is my life's work and a HUGE part of my business!  I have been teaching moms and hobbyists how to use their camera from first purchasing it all the way to coaching them into businesses of their own, and I'd love to help you as well, wherever you are (and whatever camera you have!).

I'm so glad you are here!  Teaching Photographers and other small business owners how to run more joyful, successful, and profitable businesses is one of my favorite parts of my business!  I specialize in working with photographers to make their goals a reality (or figure out what their goals should be in the first place!).
