I am SO SO excited to share February’s studio theme– Valentines Day studio minis!  The post Christmas blues are very real for me- but Valentines day is always a highlight in the slow winter season! I love the colors, the feelings, and the decor/props– so these sessions will highlight that!  I will have a heart sucker, some hearts to play with, and some other props for each kid– but you can also make it your own and bring any decor you love from home, a special valentine, or anything else you want for the session!

Key details: These are 10 minute simple, easy mini-sessions in the gorgeous JGP Studio. See what the studio looks like HERE!

Each session spot is for one kid!

If you have multiple children or want to get some photos of your little and their bff, you can add on 1 extra kid for $15  or please book 2 sessions for more than 2 kids.  

Reach out if you have any questions– these are going to be SO fun and cute!!

Note: Each session spot is for 1 kid- you can add another kid (sibling or friend) on for $15 — grab 2 sessions for 3 or more kids!  If you book 2 sessions and decide to upgrade to your full gallery, you will get BOTH full gallery upgrades for the price of 1!  Email me at with any questions!


I’ve also got just ONE family weekend family mini-session available in the studio for February on the 4th at 10:30 AM– grab that spot HERE!  These sessions are new to JGP’s lineup so they include the full gallery from the 20 minute session with parents and kids– the studio is such an EASY way to get a family session done in an easy, controlled environment!  Click HERE for more info about all the offerings for studio sessions (including newborn sessions too)!

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!).
