I'm Jill, a wedding photographer based out of Central Illinois! I'm also a photography educator who loves to teach mamas how to capture their families and new business owners how to create success that fits their lives!
I'm wife to my favorite person on the planet, mama to 3 little loves and an energetic Aussie, and obsessed with Kendra Scott jewelry and fruit pie!
I'm so glad you are here and hope this page provides you with lots of helpful resources to up-level your mom paparazzi game!!
...don't hesitate to grab them all if you want... you will only get the same emails once from me, I pinky swear, grade-school style!

A 1.5-hour video course designed to transform your pics from “just a cell phone photo” to beautiful, bright, album-worthy pictures.
Maybe you have read the manual, spent some time learning online, or even taken a class on how to take better pictures. But real life? Spotlight dance recitals, sunny soccer games, dark band concerts, sunny beach vacations, birds flying through the forest, toddlers in general...that stuff is really hard. It takes more than just one class or a little reading to master.
All enrollees will be added to the exclusive Jill Gum Photo University Students Facebook group, where I will do a monthly live booster session based on student questions sent in advance about the lessons. I will gather questions in the group throughout the month and answer them in a Facebook live Q+A (feel free to attend live to ask further questions!) that is recorded and watchable anytime after for those who can't attend live!
Each month, you will also get an E-Book PDF or Worksheet providing more content or help towards the month's topic. This may include activities and checklists to help you put the month's content into practice, a quick-glance guide to help you remember the main points while photographing on your own, or some examples of the photos with settings that I took while teaching.
Each month includes a 30-60 minute video focusing on 1 specific must-learn topic to help you photograph your life.
Depending on what the month's topic calls for, you will see me:
-Teaching to the camera while walking through real photography situations
-Photographing real people showing the topic in action
-Teaching in my "classroom" with my computer
Join my FREE "Photography for Moms" Facebook group!! Whether your go-to camera is your iPhone or a fancy DSLR, this group will help you take your photography skills to the next level!
