I‘m so happy to share this session because I would love to shoot so many more of these family sessions in my client’s homes, where they are most happy and comfortable.  It is so fun to get to use a family’s home decor as inspiration for where to photograph and play during a session.  I know it isn’t for everyone and that some people don’t have a home that is ideal for this– but Lauren and Adam 100% do and it was so enjoyable!!! Their darling, sweet little guy just turned 1 recently and I LOVED getting to see him again!  He is absolutely precious, gave the sweetest smiles, and is truly just a joy to see.  This family is s sweet together, and has always really had a special place in my heart.  I enjoyed catching up with mom and dad a bit, but I most enjoyed seeing them love on their darling 1 year old!  Here are a few favorites!

Thanks again H family- 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!).
