I am SO excited to share this precious baby boy with you! He gave me a little run in his session because he loves his mama soooo much and just did NOT want to be away from her for any reason!!!  But we got it worked out and I am so so happy for this beautiful family.  Ellie and Ryne were one of my 2020 couples that delayed to 2021 for their big celebration, and just have the most lovely little family.  It was so fun seeing both of them with a newborn even though they have been parents for quite some time already to their other son.  Little JP is so so loved already, and I cannot wait to see this family grow together over the years!

Big brother was so happy jumping on the bed!!  This is the sort of thing I love about in home newborn sessions! When your parents met on the fire department…these photos are necessary! He’s just precious! Full gallery coming soon, C family!

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!).
