Cassie and Andy welcomed me to their farm with the most warmth and joy you could possibly imagine!  They are both the type of people that just put you at ease when you are with them, and also feel instantly like old friends.   I deeply enjoyed getting to know them and hearing about the two of them together and the life they are building.  But I also LOVE their story so much, how they got together without knowing each other before after talking on facebook a bit, and how Andy instantly knew Cassie was a great potential match for him because he could see from her photos that she loved farms and family- two of his great loves.  They just got each other from the very beginning, and I can completely see why.  They are also absolutely beautiful together!  We met on a chilly early spring night and they embraced the cool weather and just rolled with everything.  And it is a favorite engagement session of mine for sure! Meet Cassie and Andy:

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!).
