A beautiful location that I have only photographed at a few times like Allerton can always get me excited about a session…but I was even more excited to meet Lauren and Landon!  I felt such a connection with them from the first time I talked to them (on Zoom, of course), and absolutely love their story.  Lauren and Landon met and began dating during the stay at home time in 2020, and it truly allowed their relationship to quickly deepen and flourish in a way that takes many couples years.  And for them- when you know, you know…and Michael and I 100% believe and get that (we were engaged in a little less than a year, and got married 6 months later!).  Lauren and Landon knew!  And after spending the evening with them at their engagement session, it is so obvious why.  They are just so so great together and seem to be each others match in every way.  They just make sense together, and are crazy about each other to go along with it…and it is absolutely beautiful to be a part of!  They are getting married at Landon’s family farm this fall, and I absolutely cannot wait! I LOVE this one! In addition to being a wonderful match, they are pretty cute together too! This light!

Landon and Lauren, I loved meeting you guys!  Your full gallery is 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!

Hello Friend!

Are you a Photographer?

Start HERE! 

Are you a mom/hobbyist?

Start HERE! 

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!).
