From engagement, to wedding, to baby # 1 and now baby # 2, I have gotten to follow this family through so much– and we got to do this session at Kelsey’s parents home, where she got read on her wedding day, which was so special!!  When they had their first baby boy, I had my 3rd a couple weeks later so I was not able to travel and do his newborn session- but when I met him 6 months later, I was instantly enchanted and nothing has changed!  Full of life and not sure about posing for photos vs playing, I have a blast with him every time– and how he gets to be the best big brother to his new little sister, Allie!  Allie was beautiful, peaceful, and calm during her newborn session, and slept so well while still giving us some beautiful awake open eyed shots.  She has been welcomed into such a loving family and I can’t wait to see her next time to see how much she grows and if she looks like her big brother!  S family, I am SO thankful to get to capture you guys again and again!  Here are some of my favorites of your beautiful Allie!

I love these of proud big brother SO much!!! 2 favorites here!

Kelsey, Allie’s 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!).
