In the end, Jill’s work is beautiful and joyful. What more could one ask.

Lifestyle Shoot Information

(babies, engagements, high-school seniors, families, kids, pets, etc,)

Without a doubt - I love taking "people" photos! I have just as much fun doing these sessions as I do taking my own "artsy" photos. I am pretty sure that is because I try to add a bit of art and a bit of whimsy to these sessions - just like I do in my personal photos. And I have willing models!

Lifestyle sessions usually last around an hour. They include a wide variety of photos. Some posed family shots. Some fun & playful artistic shots. And of course some candids!

I typically leave photos as natural as possible, although I am not against touching out something noticeable like a stain or a telephone pole.

I always chat with the client in advance to learn their goals and desires. I also love to coordinate props and talk clothing to make sure the photo results are extraordinary. 

I use a Canon 6D DSLR and Lightroom for lifestyle session photos.

Sessions are usually scheduled a month or two in advance. (High season may require a bit more advance notice.)

Cost is $300.  That includes at least one hour of shooting time. (I always say that I will last as long as your spouse, kids or pets do!) Most importantly: it includes the digital files. The photos are yours to keep & print wherever you want, whenever you want! No "print" minimums! 

You will receive your images within 2 weeks. When I schedule your session, I also privately schedule the hours it takes to edit the photos so that they are finished on a timely basis. It takes me 3-4 hours to edit a typical photo shoot!

Examples of my work:

I occasionally write a blog story about a family's shoot experience (with their permission of course!) Click here to read some of the stories and see some of the photos of past clients!

I have also posted several examples below.

Wow!!!
Jill has the extraordinary ability to capture spontaneous moments…..whether serious or playful. Her images draw the viewer in to the moment as though you were present.

Having experienced being the subject of Jill’s lens, I know her skill at creating the right environment to allow her subject to be captured naturally and effortlessly…a real talent for adults and especially kids.

Jill captures natural moments unlike any photographer I have worked with and turns them into true works of art.

Jill captured our family in a gorgeous outdoor setting with her trademark creativity and spirit (plus a few extra surprises!); the photos are simply stunning and make me smile. Thank you Jill! We look forward to working with you again and again.
