I‘m excited to share this gorgeous family!  I have a longer history with this crew, especially one of these couples! I first met Elisha and Craig when they modeled for an amazing styled shoot that the lovely Hannah Graham from The Floral Plan and I put together (check that out here!)…and Craig surprise PROPOSED to Elisha during the photo shoot!  It was an amazing exhilarating moment that I will truly never forget!  I got to photograph their wedding after that, and family photos for them since they had their darling son.  So I was extremely excited to catch up with this whole crew again!  They were so fun, connected, easy going, and troopers on a chillier than expected morning!  I loved the whole session so much and am so happy to share these favorites!  It all started with this crew:

Full gallery coming soon, Elisha!!  Thanks so much for asking me to do this!

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?

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!).
