It’s always about the people…my couples and their families…first and foremost for me. Always! It’s the part of the day that excites me the most, the thing that keeps me in “wedding wonderland” all throughout the off season…I love love stories, and I adore getting to be a part of them, see them unfold, and see how everyone interacts with each other! But this post, this part? It’s just so fun! A lot of photographers and even couples will say “they’re just details!”….and I get it. Sometimes they are chosen just as beautiful or functional. But so often, they are so meaningful as well! A bouquet that includes the first flower he ever gave her, her grandma’s ring that represents 60 years of love and marriage, the flavor of cake he baked in the kitchen with her mom, cuff links with his favorite bible verse. Big or small, the meaning is never lost on me. And today I”m sharing some favorites from special, and yes beautiful, 2020!
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!).
