Santa Claus Minis 2023 Christmas Studio Minis at The JGP Studio

Let me apologize up front for the “I-haven’t-even-made-it-through-Halloween-yet-but-the-store-has-already-put-out-all-the-Christmas-decorations” vibe that this blog post is giving out!  But when Santa is coming to town for mini-sessions at The Studio on the Square, it’s good reason to get Christmas started as EARLY as possible!

Here are all the details–

This is such an EASY, stress free (and most importantly, LINE FREE!) way for your kids to see Santa!   The set up is simple and beautiful (and will look great on Christmas cards), and it is such a low pressure and fun way for your kids to greet Santa and give him their wish list!  We LOVE our Santa too- he does a great job whether your kdis are super into it…or not!  Sometimes those can make the best photos and memories!

These sessions can include up to 4 kids and parents are welcome to jump into a photo with Santa as well!

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!).
