Ohhh this family brought me SUCH joy when I got to meet with them a couple of weeks ago!! I got to photograph the little guy in these photos exactly a year ago today as I am writing this as one of the ring bearers in Ryan and Brittany’s gorgeous wedding and he completely stole my heart that day, and even more so did at this family session for his birthday!  We explored and ran around and pointed out birds and plants and berries…and he has the BEST adventure partners in these parents of his!!  The three of them are such a sweet team, and mom and dad are amazing at bringing out the curiosity in their little man!  Last time I saw him he barely had any hair…and wait until you see his beautiful hair now!  These are a few of my many favorites!

Full gallery coming soon, Joanna!

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!).
