Spring Colorful Boho Illinois State Fairgrounds Wedding JC & Ossie | Married

Ossie and JC captured my heart from the moment Ossie asked to do their engagement session at JC’s car shop…it was creative, fun, and super non traditional.  Their wedding day was also super creative and fun and a beautifully touching day.  A true blending of families!  From the moment I arrived, Ossie was helping everyone else and focusing on them (especially her 2 daughters!).  I think she could have gone the whole day just helping everyone else and making sure everyone else was happy and comfortable, never needing a thing from anyone.  It was beautiful to watch.  But not as lovely as seeing these two true soul mates officially join their families together.  There was so much beauty and emotion to it all, and such a peace and calm between these two knowing they were embarking on a new part of their adventure that was always just meant to be!  I enjoyed every minute!  Essie’s boho colorful style stole my heart too- every part of the day just worked and I was so honored to be a part of it! Here are some of my many favorites!!

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?

Are you a mom/hobbyist?

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!).
