Kelsey and Kellan found me through a recommendation from a friend last year, and I was booked on their wedding day.  From the moment I read Kelsey’s first email, I was crushed because I just connected with her and what she said about their wedding instantly.  Well, she felt the connection too and MOVED her wedding plans so that I could photograph her wedding…and I will never forget it.  I absolutely adore this couple, and their day was such a beautiful representation of their love.  It was an easy, simple, beautiful, meaningful day with so many moments that I just loved.  Kelsey and Kellan are so kind, warm, and giving, and their loved ones are exactly the same.  The sermon and toasts were full of stories that boiled down to the same thing: These two are wonderful individuals…who are MAGIC together.  And I just love that so much, and I love that that is what EVERYONE they know and love sees in them.  It is truly beautiful to witness, and I am so grateful they chose me for their day!  Here are some (just a few, you know!) of my absolute favorites!

Kelsey, you are BEAUTIFUL! I love these two SO much!! This was the most BEAUTIFUL sunset! Kelsey and Kellan, full gallery coming soon!  Congratulations, I am SO happy for you two!!

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!).
