I recently got to photograph a family at a nearby gorgeous farm that belongs to their family and I enjoyed it so much! In all honesty, I don’t get to shoot a lot of families with older kids. I know it gets harder with schedules (and harder to convince the kids to join) but it is so important! And with this family, their oldest son will go to college soon…so this is the time to do it (and also why we grabbed some extra photos of just him!). It is still so important to get these photos, even when your kids are past the stage of changing every couple of months like they do when they are tiny! And to get them on your own family’s gorgeous property is the icing on the cake here- I enjoyed it so much! Enjoy a few of my favorites– Christy, your full gallery is 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!).
