We (Sarah, my portrait photographer, and I) love what we do.  It is a true gift to get to photograph other people’s families and memories, and honor that gift with every click of our cameras.  We truly love it, every time.  But I know for Sarah, and for me editing, this one was just the absolute perfect combination of everything– location, family, outfits, colors…it all just came together in such a beautiful way. We have SO many new favorites from the beautiful Lex family! Sarah described Ashley as “mom goals” and that is so visible in these photos.  These two parents are so loving and engaged with their kids, and you can see how much they enjoy each other and spending time together.  The Lex family booked a full session and while I definitely love minis with young kids, full sessions give us as photographers so much time and space for figuring out how a family truly interacts together, and really capturing as many moments as poses, and it really lights us up!  Their gallery really shows that, and I’m excited to get to blog it as a full family session!  Here are many of our favorites– we so hope we get to see this family again as they grow and change together!!

Full gallery coming soon, L 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?

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!).
