I‘m SO excited to share this gorgeous 2023 couple of mine!!  I was excited to meet them from the moment Amanda reached out to me, both because I felt like I instantly connected with her and also because Brody is a past student of mine!  I got to know his lovely older sister a lot better than I got to know him, but always adored him and it is SO wonderful to see him with his perfect match in Amanda!  We also got to recently photograph these two with Amanda’s family for an extended family session so it was really fun to get to see them so shortly after I edited those photos!  I loved photographing these two so much.  They are sweet and playful together, and it was just easy to spend time with them.  They felt like friends of mine instantly, and I thought they were total naturals in front of my camera (even though I don’t know if they felt like it!).  And…they have the cutest dog who I totally fell in love with– just wait until you see him!!!  I had so many favorites of this gorgeous evening, and truly can’t wait for their 2023 wedding! Meet Amanda and Brody!!

Bahhh how cute!! It was just a gorgeous evening…I love these all so much! Full gallery coming soon, Amanda and Brody!!  I can’t wait for next year!

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!).
