This sweet family has been coming to me for photography since Lyndsee and Zach’s engagement session years ago and they are SO special for me!  As a people person there is really nothing that I love more about this business then the connections I make with others, and seeing a family grow year after year, into what has been the best stage of my life certainly, is really amazing to see.  Baby H has turned 1!! Big brother wasn’t feeling well and couldn’t join us for this session, but I will see them all together soon.  What strikes me the most about this family is the absolute level of delight that Lyndsee and Zach share for both of their kids.  It all looks easy (even though I know it’s not) because they so deeply enjoy their kids, their personalities AND quirks, and they love them so so well.  Seeing a parent truly take delight in their kids really is a special thing.  They support their kids interests and just push them to embrace what they want (like when they had me do a session with JUST Harrison, their older kid, to capture his adoration of garbage trucks– check it out here!).   Lyndsee and Zach worked hard to build this family, and are giving their kids such a special life and I just am honored to witness it.  Baby H is the most beautiful little 1 year old doll!!!

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!).
