It’s another baby sharing day here, and I am so excited to share this one, because this baby was so long prayed, hoped, and wished for!  This sweet family had a long journey to get to here, to having this sweet darling baby boy in their arms, and I know they consider him SO SO worth every moment of hurt and waiting to get here.  He was a literal angel at his session, and knowing this family was going to have a more posed newborn session also, I was really able to lean into the lifestyle unposed baby-led style that really makes my heart sing and I loved it so much!  I just recently met Dan and Darcy, but was able to tell in just a few moments with them about their kindness and warmth, and their deep appreciation for this new gift of theirs. They are all absolutely beautiful together, and I am so so thrilled for them!  Meet baby Kean!

Isn’t he just precious?? Darcy, you are such a beautiful mama! We just took photos in these same spots a few weeks ago when Kean was in his mama’s belly!  It was so fun to do both sessions in the same spaces!!

O family, your full gallery is coming soon! It was SUCH an honor to get to capture this time in your lives!!

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!).
