Central IL One Year Baby Cake Smash and Family Session Goeckner Family

April 23, 2021

Oh I’m SO happy to share this beautiful returning Jill Gum Family for their baby boy’s FIRST birthday session!  I can’t believe this little guy is already 1! We did a little porch newborn session last year right after the stay at home order lifted for photographers, and I know it wasn’t exactly what his parents probably pictured even though it went so well, so I am SO glad to have gotten do do this session as planned and dreamed!  Sweet baby C is the most calm, precious little man…nothing really phases him, he smiles easily, coos happily, and is just an easy little guy to love!  He adores his big brother, and this whole family is just so sweet together!

Cake smash time!!! He enjoyed this and is so precious!! Full gallery coming soon, G family!!

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!).
