Courtney and Sean met in college, and I absolutely love the way Courtney describes the night they met.  They met through mutual friends, but she says that after those friends saw them together that night, they asked if Courtney and Sean already knew each other; their connection was instant and strong, and the room they were in could feel it too.  They begin dating the next day and never stopped, and I truly believe they never will.  They have a lot in common, many similar interests, and personalities that just fit together– I could tell that within minutes of meeting them at their engagement session.  And after hearing them talk about some of their friends and family, I truly cannot wait for their wedding day to get to meet their loved ones!

Courtney and Sean were naturals in front of my camera, and are just so wonderful together.  I truly believe I have the best, kindest couples and I am really so thankful for it!  We met at a state park area in between our two cities and it was just a beautiful spot for an afternoon engagement session…here are some of my favorites!  Meet Courtney and Sean!

Full gallery coming soon, Courtney and Sean! I can’t WAIT for your wedding!

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!).
