Just before Christmas, this sweetest family grew by one little boy, and I was so happy to head to their beautiful house for their in home newborn session!  I recently met this family for the first time during their maternity session and they immediately stole my heart.  Big sister is so joyful and enthusiastic about all things in life (especially her little brother!!), and her mom and dad love her so well.  During my time at their home I saw multiple regular sweet activities and routines that they do regularly with her, and it is just so clear that they are such a bonded and playful little group.  And this sweet little baby boy could not be luckier to have gotten to join this family!  It is a total jackpot.  And how adorable is he?? It was such a happy morning, and I’m so excited to share my favorites here!

Are you expecting a baby soon??  I have multiple different newborn session options for different style preferences and budgets- check it all out here and reach out to me at with any questions! It is ideal to book your session by around 30ish weeks to make sure we can schedule it all right- but it’s never too late to reach out!

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!

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!).
