There was nothing about this session that I didn’t love!! Meeting Jenna and Nathan was so fun…and also so long awaited.  I had a series of schedule complications while scheduling them to do a family medical need, and they were so patient in dealing with it all– and third times a charm, we finally got to meet!  It was a beautiful night, and these two instantly captured my attention– my camera loves them, and they are just effortless and fun together!  I found BOTH Jenna and Nathan so easy to talk to and get to know, and they are absolutely lovely together.  They posed comfortably and naturally, and by the time we got to the park later in the session fall was truly showing off in the most beautiful way, and we got to spend a little time with their ADORABLE pup ending the session in a perfect way!

Jenna and Nathan, I truly CAN’T wait for your wedding– I know it will be gorgeous, but I also am excited to meet all your loved ones because if they are even half as fun as you two, I know it will be a FANTASTIC day!  Meet Jenna and Nathan!!

This is one of my favorites! Look at their adorable puppy! Full gallery coming soon, 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!

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!).
