I’m Jillian! But, most call me Jill!
I am so happy you are here! I am just a small town, twenty-something girl living her best life while shopping on her days off and listening to country music any chance she can get.
There's never a day I go without putting on my own concert, whether it’s in my jeep or in the middle of a store. I live for the weekends, you can catch me in Downtown Naperville enjoying some good tacos or BBQ with friends, or back home with my favorite people enjoying a home-cooked meal. No matter where I’m at, by the end of the night this girl without a doubt looks forward to throwing her hair up in a top knot and putting on those go-to sweats to watch friends on Netflix!
CONTACT ME FOR YOUR SESSION!
Growing up I wasn’t the one that ever dreamed of being a teacher or a veterinarian. I never really knew what I wanted to be. But, something I did do was ask for a new camera every year for my birthday or Christmas. I always enjoyed capturing memories for my friends and family.
In high school, I was a Varsity cheerleader all 4 years and when I turned 16, I started my first job. In between cheer practice and competitions, I would be juggling school work and a retail job. It was then that my eyes opened up to a new adventure. I learned I didn’t want to want to work in the retail world anymore. That is was when I picked up my first big girl camera and the business part came along.
During my senior year, I met an inspiring photographer, who I was actually related to (small world, right?). He traveled the WORLD photographing weddings and doing portrait work. After one small conversation with him for the first time in my life, I felt like I knew what I wanted to do.
I have now had the privilege of photographing a wedding with this photographer and I have my FIRST destination wedding booked for 2019! I am currently in my fourth year of business, I have photographed over 25 weddings and countless portrait sessions. I look forward to hearing from you whether a bride, groom, a senior or just a friend who wants to grab a coffee and chat!
I’m not just a wedding and senior photographer, I wear many hats in my life. I am a college student, daughter, sister, friend, and (most importantly) an aunt. I am currently in my junior year at North Central College in Naperville, IL - but don't let that scare you away, this is my true passion.
On my day off you will find me shopping at little boutiques like Altar'd Sate, Edies, or Lululemon but Target is my go to on a stressful day.
Although I love dressing up for a girls night out, I can appreciate going home early to throw the hair up in a bun and put on those sweats.
I am a concert junkie, my first concert was the Dixie Chicks when I was 7 ( can I get some Wide Open spaces on Karaoke, please?) and I can’t count how many concerts I have been to since.
My go-to vacation is the BEACH. Give me the sand, the sea, and the SUN! I love it all.
My favorite human is my niece, Nora Lee. If you follow me on social media, you might think she’s actually mine.
I'D LOVE TO WORK WITH YOU!
