THIS.FAMILY!  I have known these parents for so long– before engagement, marriage, and parenthood– and loved them so much!  But as I usually discover…seeing them in this stage is my favorite!  Morgan and Damien are just brilliant people and adults who have so many passions and interests that they have fought to stay involved in while loving their boys SO SO well.  Somehow, in the blink of an eye, their “new” baby boy Palmer (I swear his newborn session was JUST yesterday) is ONE– and he absolutely lights up my day every time I see him!  I was marveling with his mama the other day about how MUCH he still looks like he did as a newborn-  his gorgeous features haven’t changed at all! And they truly are GORGEOUS features!!  He is just an absolute doll baby and I have loved getting to watch him grow throughout this year…and I feel the same about his big brother the last couple years!  I just adore this family and am so excited to be sharing this next chapter’s beginning!!

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!).
