Capturing the Silly, Quirky, and Adorable to Share with Everyone You Love

  I'm Jil.

I'm the person that stands behind the camera and captures those special moments between you and your loved ones.

Photography is my passion. It started when I was a wee one myself, pouring printed family photos onto the kitchen floor to surround myself with the happiness of the then and now. Once I could hold a camera (first one being a Mickey-Matic by Kodak), I became the family photographer. Having a camera in my hand always felt right, and I haven't stopped taking pictures since. I even made the decision to earn my BA degree in photography from Columbia College.

At the core of it all, I want to help provide families with lasting memories of those moments that pass so quickly. I'm a big kid at heart, so don't be surprised to see me turn into a giant goof to bring out the real smiles and laughs.
