I am so excited to share this favorites-of-2021 post with some of the portraits I LOVED the most!!  A wedding day is about so so many things but obviously my time photographing the couple is so special to me.  2021 was a truly amazing wedding year.  We had a few more weddings than planned while working to get in all the big celebrations from 2021 that were delayed, and I truly am ecstatic for these couples that they all got to have the celebrations they wanted.  We were nervous all year about if everyone would get to and the breath of relief knowing they all did at the end was enormous.  These couples were so resilient during a challenging time (for everyone!) but they got what they were dreaming of and I’m so happy for them each.   I truly LOVE this job- I can hardly call it a job because I love it so much- and am SO thankful to each of these 17 couples (and their loved ones!) for trusting me!!  2022 weddings start THIS weekend– so you will have more wedding fun to look at soon!  Cheers to EACH of my 2021 couples!!!

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!).
