I thought September was going to be the craziest month of the year… that was until October hit. October was FULL of engagement sessions, weddings, family photo shoots, a senior portrait session, and even a desert adventure for me (blog post on that coming soon I promise)! It was by far my busiest month, and […]

october recap & november goals.

I met Allie and her mom, Janice at the Prairie Center for the Arts in Schaumburg bright and early on a Saturday morning. It was the epitome of a brisk, October fall day… filled with gorgeous sunlight, flurries of perfectly timed wind gusts, and beautiful autumn colors. Allie and her mom chose the perfect spot […]

schaumburg high school senior portraits | helllllooooo allie.

I  briefly met Steve at an Engagement Reception that I photographed back in October of 2010. About a year ago, we tried to schedule a photo shoot, but with our hectic schedules it didn’t work. Then this year when Steve saw the BMW Shoot I did, we threw around the idea of doing a shoot with his […]

i love my brides.

When I heard that the wedding and reception was going to be at Gallery 1028, I knew it was going to be a special day. Not to mention I was shooting with one of my favorite Chicago photographers again, JordanQuinn Photography. I started the day shooting with the gals at Jesse and Ben’s beautiful, floor-to-ceiling […]

jesse + ben | chicago wedding | gallery 1028.

One of the biggest things I learned from second shooting for JordanQuinn Photography and Brittany Bekas Photography in September, was that I appreciated the direction they gave me when sending me to shoot the guys’ portraits by myself. I knew what I would want to photograph for myself, but when you’re second shooting it’s all […]

giving second shooters direction.

Yesterday, a photographer reached out to me after just shooting the D.C. Hendrick’s Gin event, similar to the one that I recently shot in Chicago. Apparently the promotions company that handles the account had mentioned they liked my photos (HOORAY!), and he sent the following email… Hey Jill, My name is (we’ll say, *Matt*), and […]

paying it forward.

You know it’s going to be a great day when you show up and you’re essentially wearing the same exact outfit as your lead photographer. Great minds, right? It doesn’t stop there. That same shirt we were wearing, also happened to be the exact color of the wedding party. Yep. We matched. Perfectly. And the […]

julie + jason | st. charles wedding.

To be quite honest, I was a little nervous about this wedding. Not because I didn’t think the couple would be amazing or that I wasn’t uber excited to shoot with my favorite photog buddy, Brittany Bekas Photography, but because of what I had just gone through ten hours prior. The day before Jenny and Nate’s […]
