I‘m SO excited to share this early family session of this gorgeous family of 7 (well 8 really– don’t miss their adorable pup!)!!  Monique and Jesse are friends who I reached out to about being a part of a coaching session I was doing for a photographer who wanted practice photographing groups with more than 2 kids.  I decided to go big and show her posing a group of 7, and we had so much fun!  I LOVED the way Monique styled her absolutely adorable kids, and it was a beautiful morning.  But the genuine, joyful, connected way these 7 are together is what really stole my heart– they just so clearly really LOVE being together and I saw it in every moment of their session (even though both their little boys were battling sickness!).  I truly LOVE these photos and am so excited to share my favorites here and get their gallery sent to them!  Their love for each other is palpable and so beautiful.  Meet the S family!

This is one of my favorites!!   I mean, how perfect are they?!! Full gallery coming soon, S family!!

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!).
