I‘m SO excited to share this first in a long string of sweet in-home newborn sessions that I absolutely love photographing!  I have been photographing this family over the last year even though I have known of them for longer, and I just truly love them.  They are playful, energetic, and so fun together, and really love each other just so well.  A new baby boy has joined their crew, and sweet Nolan was just precious at his session!  He fits in so well already with this family, and gave me the perfect amount of asleep and awake for a great session.  I totally love photographing families in their own space, with their own furniture and belongings and walls in the background, because it gives so much context and detail to their life as they live it every day– and this session reminded me of that so much!  Meet darling Nolan!!

So much love packed into these little hands!! Ashley you are such a beautiful mama! To see their recent New Salem maternity session, click HERE!  Full gallery coming soon, L family!

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!).
