Hi there! I’m the Jill in JTP 🙂 I started this company over seven years ago (where has the time gone?!) and have since expanded the team to include four other amazing ladies who have either worked with me second shooting or lead shooting for the past few years. To be honest, when I started shooting – I didn’t know where this business would take me. I didn’t even know it was turning into a business. It all happened naturally. I did something, I liked it, so I kept doing it. I kept learning, creating, collaborating – working on things I loved and cutting out things I didn’t. And then one day, weddings and lifestyle became my specialties. Working with people, telling their stories, and documenting moments. Those are the things that shined through – those are the things that, for me, made sense to photograph.
Outside of photography – I love to travel and explore the unknown. But I also love sitting on the couch sandwiched between my husband and two cats. Cooking is like therapy to me – and I also can’t say no to a night out trying a new restaurant in Chicago (sooo many to try still!). I’m a lover of my friends and family – loyal to the bone. I always say I’d move out west to live in the mountains if I could leave my family behind – but I just can’t. So here I am – in Chicago, living in Logan Square (LOVE IT), doing the midwest thing… and I can’t complain because I really do believe Chicago is one of the best cities in the world. Let’s explore together and tell your story.
