Well this is one that is SUPER fun for me to share! I have shot a few very untraditional engagement sessions in my day (one in a cross fit gym, one at an airport, one at a different gym) and have DEEPLY enjoyed the creativity of each of them, and this one was absolutely the same!  Ossie reached out right after they booked their wedding with me to ask if I would possibly be willing to shoot in JC’s shop, and I was all too happy to say yes!  Like the other less traditional locations, not only would it be creatively interesting, but it is so very personal to them, as a place they love and spend a lot of time at.  I enjoyed my time with these two SO much and would have loved it no matter where we went.  They are warm, kind, super personable, and just super into each other, all of which made this session super special!  After the shop, they wanted to do the next part of their session outside the restaurant where they had their first date, which was also super fun.  I truly cannot wait for their wedding, to meet Ossie’s girls and see them with JC, and for them to become an official family, even though they very much already are.

Meet Ossie and JC!

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!).
