Today is an announcement day more or less, while sharing a local business I absolutely love and admire!  I have been working quietly with multiple brands and small businesses over the last year expanding an area of my business that I am completely head over heels for, and the stunning Holly from Holly Rose Skincare has been a favorite part of that!  If you are interseted in more info about small business and branding sessions with me, click HERE for details or email me at!

But on to HOLLY!  I was captured by her within literal seconds of looking at her social media and studying her brand before her session, and it was confirmed immediately upon seeing her.  She is warmth and kindness personified, and really hears and gets to know people.  Her name would be next to “genuine” in the dictionary, which well explains her raving client base and highly booked status.  What I didn’t know until her session is that she has developed her OWN skincare and makeup line (you could also find her name next to “boss”!!).  She is so inspirational and working to build so many fun areas of her business.  Holly does facials, professional makeup, lash services, waxing, makeup consultations, and so much more– she is the REAL deal and I am honored to know her!  Meet Holly and her amazing business!

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!).
