Today I’m popping in with a few super fun resources I’ve been loving lately!  This is a little preview of an email series I am going to be starting soon, where you can expect to hear from me every couple of weeks  (my inbox is full and I don’t want to overwhelm you if yours is, too). In my emails I will share one of the following: photography/business resources, tips, things I am loving, and amazing educational things I have found online from other educators!!  

So if you’re interested in learning more about strategies I used to build my 6 figure photography business, shoutouts for other business owners, and maaaaaybe the occasional Target find–stay tuned! 🙂 But for today:

1). I have a huge, FREE educational resource for my photography friends that is happening NEXT WEEK!  The lovely Julie Paisley is hosting an online summit with 10 other educators that are all strong, talented, amazing women with so much to offer!  You can sign-up HERE!

I am speaking at 11:00 AM all about 10 Game-Changers in your First Few Years of Business and I can’t wait!  There is SO MUCH KNOWLEDGE present in this incredible group of educators, and something in this summit for everyone: new business owners, growing business owners, and veterans moving into education and passive income theirselves!  And did I mention it’s free?!  Grab your spot here.  It’s on 6/23 starting at 9 AM EST and continuing throughout the day! And if you can’t attend live? You can purchase LIFETIME access to the replays for just $49…and that purchase comes with a bonus from EACH educator!!

Sign up HERE!

2. I recently was sent this adorable bag from a company I have worked with before and LOVE, and I just have to point you towards it if you love a cute purse as much as I do!  This site has a LOT of fun little gifts for women, so if you are searching for something small or large to send to a friend, sister, mom, etc– I highly recommend it!  Check it all out HERE!

3. If you are a mom photographer, I wanted to make sure to share that I have a facbeook group for community, learning, and sharing as moms who love to take photos of their kids! It isn’t just for professional photographers (though there are many in there), but I’d LOVE to have you if you love to take photos (cell phone or “fancy camera”) of your kids!  Join HERE.

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!).
