I was SO happy when my sweet couple Katherine and Josh reached out about me photographing their new baby girl in my studio space! I have used it a ton at this point for easy, simple family mini sessions and many themed magic of childhood sessions and I have enjoyed it so much, but have only gotten a few runs with newborns in this space (vs in my client’s homes, which is what I most typically do and have been doing for the past 10 years!).  But I absolutely love it!  And this little baby girl…she is just gorgeous!  She has such feminine little features and was so easy and sweet at her session!  She was awake a fair amount but just so happy.  And her parents are just completely over the moon for her- it was all beautiful to see!  Katherine and Josh are gentle and so loving with her and I know they will thrive as a family together!  Meet baby A!

Look at her smile!! Beautiful family!! Full gallery coming soon, Katherine and Josh! It was truly an honor!

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 mom/hobbyist?

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!).
