I‘m so excited to share this happiest little boy and his one year photos!  I adore this family and have gotten to see them through a lot over the last few years, and have loved watching this transition for them.  They are patient, extremely fun and loving, and adoring parents to these 2 little men and it’s beautiful to witness!  Little JP is just the happiest guy, with easy smiles and coos and an open personality that is happy to spend time with whoever he is with.  We had a lot of fun together in my studio, and I’m always excited for the next time I will see them! Happy birthday JP!!

Love this one so much! I truly love this photo so so much! Big brother gets a moment 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?

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!).
