Well I admit it, for the first time in my career I am woefully behind on blog posts.  But due to some major family shifts, I have fewer work hours than I ever have and during my busiest season, I had to say “this can wait” on something…so I’ve been delivering galleries like crazy, and will catch up on some blogging in the off season!  I will admit while I miss a very steady work schedule…getting to spend so much extra time with my littlest the last year before he goes to full time school has been truly amazing…but that’s all to share another day!
Today, I am SO excited to share the beautiful B family and their new baby Jack!  This session was one of those where the combination of everything was just photo-perfect…a beautiful family full of love, perfectly chosen outfits, and their gorgeous home as the backdrop– I loved it all so so much and I know you will too!  While I do also offer studio newborn sessions and unposed mini newborn-sessions now, I will always love these in home lifestyle sessions the most because they are just so representative of the family and what they love!

Also…you may have never seen a prouder big sister than in these photos, and it was the cutest thing!!!

Big brother was a little more tentative but I know that he and Jack will be the best little buds! When Grandma and Grandmpa are visiting from our of town, you’ve gotta get them in a few photos!

Full gallery coming soon, B 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?

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!).
