Talk about the perfect combo of outfits, location, and light! The only problem was that it was about 100 degrees when we shot these, and I know how uncomfortable this sweet family was weather wise…but we wanted to stick to the plan, and I think these pictures make it SO WORTH IT!!! I have had the pleasure of getting to know this family a bit over the last year and I just adore them so much! Laci owns an amazing online clothing boutique and is honestly just an amazing business woman and SO much fun to follow– I am really amazed at how regularly and candidly she shares her life with her FB group, and it is inspiring as a fellow small business owner to watch her run hers! Go follow her boutique- you will love her too! Her older boy and my little girl are also friends from school (and may end up getting married one day, right Laci?! We’ll see! 😂😂), and her boys are just so sweet and fun. They are polar opposites, and I have had a blast photographing them a couple of times recently! We took these photos on family property of theirs and I could photograph there every day… it was so so beautiful! Here are a couple of my favorites!

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!).
