This is SUCH a fun session for me to share because I absolutely ADORE these two!  I shot Michael’s sister’s wedding a few years ago (and it was extremely memorable and special to me for many reasons), and am so happy to be shooting Michael and Lexi’s wedding this year!!  In addition, Lexi just 100% GETS photos and what work swell outfit wise, and these two together are an absolute dream to photograph.  They make it all SO easy–their interaction together is so natural and beautiful and their love shines through so clearly.  I honestly could not have enjoyed myself more this night.  We found all the pockets with the very best light as we chatted about them as a couple, their plans for their wedding, and their life together.  These two instantly make you feel like an long time friend– like someone they have known forever.  They are just pure gold and I can’t wait for you to “meet” Lexi and Michael!

I mean, how cute are they!?! I have so many favorites, but this is on the list! Lexi loves willow trees as much as I do and I’m so thankful this one was growing it’s leaves enough for us to use!! Full gallery coming soon, you two!!  I can’t WAIT for your wedding!!

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!).
