Oh I’m just SO excited to share beautiful little Lottie with you!! Not only is she the first girl on one side of this family in a LONG time, but she is the daughter of a sweet and dear friend of mine and just my favorite wedding planner to work with, Hannah Graham from Plan Events and Design!  She does ALL things weddings in the most amazing, stylish way (and also does just flowers for weddings– so brides, if you are looking for a florist, grab her!) and after seeing her home that she has put SO much gorgeous style into, I just think she is all the more amazing!  I just adore her as a person, and have been so excited to watch her family grow!!

This sweet little babe was so good at her session!  We did full on lifestyle with very little posing, and I loved every moment of it.  The space was so beautiful, Lottie was patient and easy to photograph, and this sweet family is so natural and lovely together.  Lottie’s big brother Axel is proud and excited about all things big brother, and is so sweet with her (before running away to play as toddlers do!).  I just adore this family and am so excited to share them with you!

Lottie was fussing here… but look at proud big brother!!! She had the brightest eyes when she was awake!!! Full gallery coming soon, G family!  Thank you so much for letting me capture this special time!!!

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!).
