When I think about warm, kind, friendly couples who I could just go have a meal with and talk for hours to, these two are at the top of the list!  Meeting Katherine and Josh was like meeting 2 old friends of mine, people I had always known.  They are such open and friendly people, and I absolutely LOVED getting to know them at their engagement session while walking through a place so meaningful to them and their story.  These two are having a winter wedding (my first of 2022) and I literally cannot wait for it.  Having met them both, I can only imagine how kind and welcoming their friends and family that shaped them into who they are must be, and I just know it will be such a beautiful day.  Katherine and Josh met at a wedding and were sort of set up by mutual loved ones, and it is just a story that unfolded so beautifully.  I truly believe these two are going to have SUCH a lovely marriage beyond the beautiful wedding I know they will have too.  I really can’t wait!  Meet Katherine and Josh!

Full gallery coming soon, you two! 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?

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!).
