Between the blue outfit and the baby blue eyes, this little man has got to be one of the most handsome little guys there is!  Sweet little Lincoln is a part of my first year coverage and I cannot believe how much he has grown and what a sweet, fun little guy he is.  Lincoln’s parents are a #jillgumcouple of mine and I absolutely adore this family.  They take such delight in their little guy and just seem like they have been together forever already, which is how I felt at their newborn session too.  They are such natural parents.  When people are around me and my kids they will see joy and energy, but also probably some hubbub and stress.  These 3?  It feels so calm and easy, and it is just so fun to be in their presence!!  I can’t wait to share these favorites!!

Erica, these photos of you and your little boy melt me!! Full gallery coming soon, M family!

Special thanks to my sweet friend Tara (of Tara Long Photography) for letting me use her beautiful studio space for these winter sessions!  She is an amazing local photographer with a huge heart for giving, and I am SO grateful for her friendship!

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!).
