I am so excited to be here today because one of my favorite Jill Gum Families has expanded and added a darling baby boy to their mix (AND moved across the country all in a matter of a few days!)!  What a whirlwind for them…but it tells me how important their family memories are that they made this work literally in the middle of a cross country move, and it meant to much to me too to get to meet their new baby boy and see them all together!  Baby B is absolutely precious (and this family also gets my affinity for babies who share first letters of their first names, like my kids do!)– I had SO much fun meeting him and seeing big sister love all over him!  I know they are going to have SO MUCH FUN together in their new environment, and can’t wait to see them when they get to move back!  Meet Baby B!

I just LOVE his sweet face!! Super proud big sister! Oh my heart! Full gallery coming soon, Amanda and Timmy!  I’m wishing you guys ALL the best this year!

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!).
