A little over a week ago, I had the immense honor of photographing a small immediate-family-only wedding for a couple of mine doing a larger ceremony last year!  For this couple, the story was a little different than some of my other 2020 smaller weddings.  This couple got engaged just a few months ago…but knew that in order to have the big celebration they wanted they needed to wait and give time to plan and arrange it all.  However, they didn’t want to wait (even really another couple of weeks) to be husband and wife!!  So they made it happen and planned a beautiful, intimate wedding ceremony and it was SO much fun to witness!!

Nicole and Matt are a beautiful couple who deeply love each other and those around them, and they also are parents to a darling daughter who they are absolutely crazy about!  It was so fun to get to meet them and their families, and it makes me so excited about what is to come next year!  Nicole and Matt, CONGRATULATIONS to you both, and here are some of my favorites!!!

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!).
