Well blog world, I have definitely missed you!! I have taken a little two week hiatus, attempting to use my small amount of “work” time as carefully as possible while dipping back into sessions and working really hard on the big project I have mentioned (and still getting in lots of cuddle time with my sweet baby who is growing way too fast!).  I should be back on a couple-of-posts per week schedule now, and am so excited to chat with you all again!

Today comes with a big announcement– my Spring MIni-Sessions are available to book now!  With weddings and education (and life as a mom of 3!), mini-sessions are my only remaining openings for seniors and families this year.  I will do minis in the fall as well, and maybe a small round in June.  I have always loved minis because I get to reconnect with SO many past JGP families, and now that they are my main connection point I just love them even more!

These mini-sessions are open to families, couples, and seniors! They make a GREAT Mother’s Day gift, and last year I particularly loved them for seniors who hadn’t gotten a chance to do a full session yet, or were looking for something smaller like this! Don’t let life’s moments pass you by undocumented, friends!!

These sessions opened first to my exclusive newsletter community (click here to join!), and between that community and my previous JGP clients (who always get priority access to all session dates!) they are almost half booked.

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 Photographer?

Start HERE! 

Are you a mom/hobbyist?

Start HERE! 

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!).
