This downtown Chicago engagement session just makes me HAPPY to share with you, and I think you will feel the same when you see the photos!  First- we photographed at one of my favorite spots to photograph in Chicago (the Wrigley Building)…and that is always so fun!  But way beyond, it was these two.  Anyone who knows these two will know instantly what I am talking about here: Chelsea and Taylor have an energy about them that was absolutely infectious.  It mirrored the city I was photographing them in, which I have always been energized by…even just LOOKING at these photos of them makes me smile.  You can just FEEL Chelsea’s joy when you look at her smile, and Taylor is the perfect amount of easy going and fun to compliment her.  I just had a blast with these two, who were up for absolutely anything with excitement and energy that totally matched mine!!

Favorite!! I LOVE this location and these photos so much! I can’t WAIT to have fun with you guys again next year!  Gallery coming soon!!

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!).
