This sweet couple found me online, like a lot of my couples.  They have a different story though. They found me when, about six months before their wedding date, they lost both their photographer AND their venue (which initially included most of their other plans as well).  Wow. Talk about high stress!  They had a popular fall wedding date that I happened to have open because I had been fully booked for months, and turned away quite a few couples.   But I really felt for their story, and was so excited about what they shared about their new plans (a wedding on their family property) that I just had to say yes.  And meeting them affirmed that that I made the right choice– I just adored them instantly.  They are warm and kind, and easy going together.  I loved chatting with them happy to and getting to know them so much, and they were troopers on a hot sticky night that came after a lot of rain.  They were just so excited to be moving forward with their plans– and I can’t wait to be a part of their big day!  Here are some favorites from their session– meet Kadelyn and Tyler!

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!).
