Time is flying by, and these first two photos are such a strong example of that for me!  I feel like I just yesterday did this family’s newborn session for their little boy and now he’s almost 1.5!  It was SO MUCH FUN for me to see this family again.  These boys are little explorers and also such good buddies, and I love getting to see them together.  It started to pour about 2 minutes into our mini-session, so we wanted in our cars for about 30 minutes and finally got a chance to start again and I am so glad!  Here are just a couple favorites (including a little blast from the past for this family)!

Kids are ALL on the move at this age- but I honestly just love it.  In a few years, they will be happy sitting for photos and for now…we explore! S family, thank you SO much for letting me capture these for you– full gallery coming soon!!

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!

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!).
