Halloween Costume Minis 2023 Studio Minis at The Studio on the Square

Are you planning those awesome homemade (or in my case home-bought!) Halloween costumes yet?!  Two of my kids have decided what they want to be and 1 is still deciding!  I have LOVED year after year taking my kids out to do some Halloween costume photos that show off their costume and a whole lot of personality with it as well (my favorite was 7 year old Batman E1 jumping off a high curb with his cape flying in the wind!) and am SO excited to be able to bring these to the studio on October 29th and October 31st!  These are SO simple, quick, and super easy for parents wanting to have this year’s costume choice captured (in a super stress free way)!

Note: Each session spot is for 1 kid, or choose the “extra kid add on” during booking to add $15 for another kid!  Grab 2 sessions for 3 or more kids (which then includes twice the photos/etc).  If you book 2 sessions and decide to upgrade to your full gallery, you will get BOTH full gallery upgrades for the price of 1!  Email me at with any questions!

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!).
