Outdoor Maternity & Family Session at Lincoln’s New Salem Lounsberry Maternity

May 14, 2021

I am SO happy to share this sweet smiling growing family here today– especially because I will get to meet the sweet baby boy in mama’s belly SOON!!  We had to reschedule this session due to spring weather, and ended up getting it in about as late as I have ever shot a maternity session (but in time!!).  I have so much fun with these 4 every time I see them.  They are good at just ENJOYING each other’s company, and not taking anything too seriously…and in my opinion, that works pretty great for photos with young kids.  We run around a bit, play, have fun, and get genuine photos of the just BEING together…it is really the best.  Here are some of my very 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!).
