This sweet family is so so special to me because they have been with me since the beginning!!  Elise and Tyler were not nearly my first wedding– but they were pretty early in my career, and getting to watch their family grow right alongside mine is just so fun.  Their wedding day linked me to so so many of my other couples (many who also have families now) and truly solidified that this was what I wanted to do with my life– capture people’s weddings, and see their families grow!  And it is special to me also that they have an older boy and younger girl– just how we started!  Sweet baby O absolutely stole my heart at this session, and I loved seeing her with her big brother!  They are absolutely precious together and are so adored by their parents, and so WELL loved.  I cannot wait to photograph them throughout this year, and continue to get to watch them grow up together!

How PRECIOUS is this sweet baby girl!?? A profile shot is one of my FAVORITES!

W family, full gallery is coming soon!  So much love to you all!

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?

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!).
