I’m deeply excited to announce a new upcoming mini-session offering!  For the past couple of years, I’ve been spending more time working with business owners both on photos for their brand and of their products, and I have completely fallen in love with helping businesses up-level their online presence with photos!  This is something that can benefit all business owners, whether you own a brick and mortar or run an online business!
Maybe you don’t own your own business, but could use a few headshots for a work badge, website, or other documents.  
Either way- I’ve got you with this new simple offering!  These sessions will take place on 2/25 and will give each participant their choice of 2 different locations between my studio space and the beautiful historic Broadgauge next door!  You can see examples of lots of the location options below (there are 6 to pick from).
These sessions are a perfect dip into headshots or branding photos that are simple, easy, and quick if you don’t love being in the photos!  If you are ready for a deeper dive or looking for just 2-3 photos total, send an email to — I’ve got options for both of those as well!
Here are all the details:

Here are quite a few examples showing off some of the different spaces available to choose from for your photos from a recent session with Sarah from Outsource to Sarah!  Each person who books one of these minis will be sent a little questionnaire that shows each space to choose their favorite 2 from for their mini-session!  If you are interested in more location options, just reach out via email- we can schedule you a longer session that involves more time and more locations (and multiple outfits/etc).  Reach out at!

Edit your cell phone photos with just ONE click to either "fix" an issue or add beautiful "flair" and style to your photo!

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!).
