I will never forget the moment my sweet friend Christie told me that after trying for quite a while and living a very hard story as a part of that longing, she was pregnant…with twins!  While I know she didn’t always feel this way, she was so calm- like she knew it was just meant to be (and I truly believe it was).  She would be mama to 3 beautiful babies here on Earth after wondering for a long time when and if that would happen.  And there is not a better family for this joy!  At their newborn session, it was like these 5 had always been together.  They had a rhythm and routine going already, and big brother Will was just so proud and excited to show his new baby brother and sister off to me- he could not leave their sides!  The excitement he shared was completely palpable and so precious.  Owen and Allie are just beautiful and I cannot WAIT to watch them grow– but the baby snuggles (and bottle I got to feed Owen!) were SUCH a treat!

Christie, you are so beautiful! So proud!! Favorite! I wouldn’t maybe typically include a photo like this, but I just thought it was too cute int heir double bassinet! They are holding hands! I cannot handle it!

Christie and Mike, I am SO thrilled for you guys and hope you love your gallery! <3

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!).
