A couple weeks ago, I had SUCH a fun night with one of my 2023 couples and it just reminded me of how absolutely amazing next year is going to be!  Sofia and Riley were so enjoyable to spend the evening with.  They are easy to talk to, live interesting lives, are so excited to get married, are close to their families…it was just a blast.  We met in Forest Park in St Louis near where they live and just enjoyed the beauty of the space and the final color on the trees before a winter landscape takes over.  Sofia’s stepmom is a local wedding planner who I adore and I’m so honored that they chose me to photograph what will be an absolutely amazing day!  These two are just classy and fun and my camera LOVED them as you will see– I just love these photos so much and can’t wait to share them! Meet Sofia and Riley!

This type of scenery isn’t something I get to photograph in often but I LOVED it and it was perfect for these two! Favorite! I love a willow so so much! Aren’t these two just BEAUTIFUL together?!   Sofia and Riley, I LOVED meeting you two and absolutely can’t wait for your wedding! Full gallery coming soon!

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!).
