I‘m SO excited to share a new Jill Gum Family on the blog today, and one that totally stole my heart in my time with them!  The S family wanted some formal, more posed photos…but then they wanted to explore and play together and I absolutely loved it.  A family that is willing to take off their shoes and walk through the muddy forest for some fun and beautiful photos is a DREAM type of family for me to photograph.  In addition- these 5 just seemed to really enjoy each other and spending time together, no matter what the activity, and I love that so much.  These 3 little boys are lucky and loved little men and I had so much fun exploring with them!

S family, I loved meeting you SO much!  Full gallery coming soon!

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!).
