I‘m not sure where to begin with this one even! This beautiful family is not just clients of mine (honestly, I don’t feel that way about all of my clients), but dear friends. Our families became connected through our kids– these two sweet girls of theirs are the same ages as my two oldest kids, and our older kids ended up in Pre-K together their first year. I will forever be thankful for that bit of luck…because they have been besties (with a few others their age!) ever since, and it is a friendship I hope they hold onto forever! We just LOVE this family– they are lifegiving, joyful, kind, and fun. Janelle and Neil–JaNeil”– (and now in turn their girls) literally wrap you up into their warmth when you are with them. If you know them, you love them– we are just thankful to get to be a tiny part of their circle! I am so deeply excited for them and their sweet baby BOY they are expecting as 2021 begins. What a lucky and loved little boy this will be. Favorite (maternity shot ever?) on the left! Janelle, you are so gorgeous!!! J, I love you all and can’t wait to see you with YOUR BABY BOY in your arms!! Full gallery coming your way!
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!).
