Imet the sweetest new family in my studio recently for their new baby boy’s newborn session and it was just a perfect morning!!  Baby O was SUCH a perfect baby at his session…I always have a running list of things I want to get photographed, and then a little dream list and he sailed through it all!  And then…he woke up and just was so happy to hold up his little head and look around on dad’s shoulder at just a over a week old- I was shocked!  He was a total rockstar.  I also loved seeing his new parents with him, who truly seemed like old pros already.  Calm, cool, and collected, but also completely adoring of every coo and facial expression and snuggle.  It is so fun to reminisce about us as new parents when I see others in this role, and these two are definitely way more calm than we were — its beautiful!  And so is this new family!

Baby O was just the sweetest! Look at him on dad’s shoulder!

I have a lot of different options for newborn photography– you can check them out here!!

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!).
