TAKE BETTER PHONE PHOTOS OF YOUR KIDS- FOR FREE! New Free Video with my top 5 tips

For over two years, I’ve taught moms how to use their “fancy” cameras to take better photos of their kids and their lives through my monthly membership program, the Jill Gum Photo University!  As a professional photographer, I can’t deny that nothing creates better photos than good quality gear and someone who knows how to use it.

HoweverI’m a busy mom of three, wife, and business owner, and I can fully admit that carrying around my fancy camera and extra lenses 24/7 just doesn’t happen.  And I also know that lots of people have no interest in learning how to use a professional camera.  And that’s ok!

The one thing I will always preach is that the BEST camera to use is always the camera you have on you.  And what camera do you always have on you, 24/7?  Your phone camera!  

If the only camera you own is the one that’s on your phone, don’t worry! That doesn’t mean you won’t have beautiful photos of your children, special moments, and your life!   If you understand just a few photography basics, you can capture beautiful photos with any camera, especially the camera on your phone!

And I’m so excited to share with you a new, FREE video resource that teaches you my top 5 tips to take better photos with your phone! Click HERE to grab access to the video!

The best part (apart from being free)?  The video is under 6 minutes long and each tip can be used immediately! You don’t need to buy anything extra or study or practice or even want to learn more about photography.  These are truly 5 ready-to-use tips from a professional photographer, and I guarantee you you’ll see immediate results in your photos!

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!).
