I‘m not sure I have ever met a little guy who started his session with more excitement and snuggles!  I haven’t seen this sweet little man since his newborn session and yet the moment he saw me, he was interested in being scooped up in my arms and giving the camera an adorable performance…I just loved it.  Sweet Gibson is just the most handsome little guy with his fabulous hair and adorable 1 year old fashion, and I LOVED seeing him interact with his sweet parents.  Sara and Jeremy honestly make it look so easy (though I know it doesn’t always feel like that!) and just love on their little guy so well.  He is clearly the center of their world and it is beautiful to watch!  Gibson was tired by cake time, but got in a few great handfuls before calling it quits, and I just loved how he wanted to eat his cake in many locations instead of just 1! I think they have a future performer in him (which would not surprise anyone who knows his parents!), and I can’t wait to see him grow up! Here are a few of my favorites (full gallery coming so soon, Sara and Jeremy!)!

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!).
