If you’ve been around here for a while, you know that I love winter.  I have loved it for my whole life, but as a photographer I love it even more because the light is different in winter and it’s just beautiful.  So I am always really excited when my couples want to brave the cold for a winter engagement session and was so excited to meet Claire and Sean for a classy downtown engagement session!  And these two are classy- Claire has such an elegance about her and Sean follows suit!  I enjoyed getting to know these two so much and learned a lot about how they care for their friends and love each other so well.  They enjoy each other’s company so much, and my camera just loved them!  I am so excited to get to shoot their wedding in under 2 months (it’s my first of the year just like this was my first engagement session of the year!).  They have hired my very favorite local planner and it’s just going to be an incredible and meaningful event!  Meet Claire and Sean!

How gorgeous are these two?? I love this whole set so much! This outfit choice was 🔥!! Claire and Sean, your gallery is coming soon!  I can’t WAIT for your wedding day!

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!).
