This beautiful family’s session was a long time coming because we had a few reschedules for various reasons, and by the time it came, I felt like I had chatted quite a bit with this beautiful mama so it was SO fun to get to go through their beautiful gallery!  We LOVED getting to meet and photograph them!  This is a very tight knit group of 4, and that just makes photographing them so fun and easy.  They were cuddly, sweet, and clearly just really enjoy spending time together– which makes our job of showing who they really are together so much easier (and more fun for us too, honestly!).  And how cutely did Sarah, this beautiful mama, style them all?!  Both these kids had such fun personalities (and look at those big smiles and this sweet girl’s beautiful glasses!).  They are just such a lovely family we are SO excited to call them a #jillgumfamily now!!  Here are some of our favorites!

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!).
