I cannot believe how extra quickly these months seem to have flown by for all my First Year Baby’s who I photograph every few months, especially with everything that has gone on these last couple months!  But I was so excited to realize we would be able to meet outside again for all of my late spring/early summer milestone sessions, and SO happy to see this sweet family again!  Sweet little Blaire is just the happiest, smiliest, sweetest little babe and I just love it when I get to see these 3– and their beloved puppy Millie- all together!  They are just so comfortable, natural, and easy together…and it puts me at ease to be around them!   Blaire is SO connected with her mommy and daddy and it’s the sweetest thing to see!

I had to include a few photos like this on the right…because little Blaire spent so many moments looking and smiling at her mama and daddy like this throughout the session…like she was so enamored with them, and just so happy that they were smiling and wanted to be a part of it…it was SO sweet and not something I remembers seeing before quite like this! She loves her parents SO much! Another of those darling moments!

Timmy and Amanda, your full gallery is coming soon- I can’t wait to see you in a few more months!

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!).
