I got to spend the sweetest afternoon with these 3 last week, and after having photographed Anna and Joshua for years, and knowing them way longer, it meant so much to me.  It is so fun to see my friends as parents, and these two are just incredible.  They take such joy and delight in their adorable little man (who is absolutely sweet, and cannot stop squeaking and squealing to show his equal appreciation of them) and it was just so special to see.  They are all so lucky to have each other (and let’s not forget Oskee pup, just as much a part of their family) and it is just really special to see.  Little J was so sweet at his session and I truly just loved seeing this family interact together in their home (and getting to grab a few photos in the snow too)!  Anna, your family is beautiful and I’m so honored to get to capture it.  You are such a wonderful mama to this lucky boy and I just could not adore you guys more!!  Full gallery coming soon!

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!).
