Well, if this first 2022 engagement session is any indication of how this year is going to go…I literally can’t wait!  Erica and Adam were endearing, kind, warm, and absolutely beautiful in front of my camera!  They are so excited about their life together and it showed in every moment I spent with them.  They have a beautiful story that involves a long friendship before they dated (and Adam is very close with Erica’s brother– close enough that he stood in his wedding)– it is a beautiful story of long term interweaved stories and fun together, and I just know they will have such a beautiful marriage! I cannot WAIT for their fall 2022 wedding!  Here are some of my many favorites– meet Erica and Adam!!

How adorable are these two?! It was cold and they were just champions!! Favorite on the left! Erica and Adam, your full gallery is coming soon!

Brides, I have been fully booked for 2022 for about 4 months now, but have lots of dates available for 2023 and would love to chat with you!!!

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!).
