After a lot of time off this summer, catching up and starting a busier fall with these two was so much fun.  They were like a breath of fresh fun air and I absolutely loved getting to know Bailey and Jimmy!  They have an easy, effortless love and are quick to laugh and not take life too seriously.  Their 2 adorable dogs joined us at the park because it’s a place they regularly spend time together, and it was so fun to see them in a “regular” element of theirs.  And they were so photogenic!  Absolute naturals in front of the camera, I took way too many photos of them and am so excited to share them here.  Bailey and Jimmy, I can’t WAIT for your wedding day, and to meet all the people who made you you–if I adored you both so much after just a couple hours I can only imagine all your favorite people together in one place!  It will be a blast!  Here are some of my favorites!

Isn’t Bailey’s dress GORGEOUS?! And this light!!! Love all of these glowy photos SO much! Full gallery coming son, you two!  See you in 2023!!!

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!).
