I am so happy to be back behind my camera again (and to test out my NEW baby, the Canon R6, in some real sessions the last couple weeks!), and this session embodied everything I love about photography! I got to meet with this beautiful family in their own home and space, where they are most comfortable, for a family session with their new little guy who stole my heart! He was honestly the happiest baby of his age I maybe ever have photographed, and just loved being with his parents! It was so sweet to see them together. It is clear that even in their couple months together, they have gained such a comfort and joy in being together. Sometimes (all the time??), being a new parent can be super overwhelming, but these two are honestly SUCH naturals with their new baby and it was just beautiful to see! Here are some of my favorites!
I love ALL of these so much! Michelle, your full gallery is coming soon! I LOVED meeting you guys so much!
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!).
