Headed to England!

Just a heads up that the studio will be closed for three weeks while I’m away in England visiting friends and family. I’ll be traveling in a big loop from the bottom to the top of the country, so if you’re interested in coming along on the adventure, be sure to follow me on my “micro-blog”: Instagram!

I’ll be back in mid-June fresh, inspired and excited to see my lovely clients. I can’t wait to share my travels with you!

Announcing Our New Midtown Studio!

If you didn’t already hear about through our popular monthly e-newsletter, we are very excited to announce the THE NEW MIDTOWN STUDIO! Designed with babies in mind, we are now able to offer the perfect setting for newborn and maternity sessions, for both our local and out-of-town clients. Say goodbye to worrying about whether or not your home will be too dark for your session…

This isn’t your average “portrait studio”… Our loft is flooded with beautiful natural light and filled with cozy furniture, officially making it my new favorite spot for photographing brand new babies.

Here’s a recent testimonial from a studio client:
“Oh my goodness, Jill!! You forgot to tell me to get out the tissues!! Totally crying. They are SO BEAUTIFUL! I’m in love and not quite sure how I’m going to choose any favorites. Thank you so much for these precious images!!” — BH

The studio is by appointment only, but everybody is welcome. Give us a call or shoot us an email to book your newborn or maternity session in the studio today!

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift?

photography mothers day gift

Mother’s Day is this Sunday and, I don’t know about you, but it snuck up on me this year!  Apparently, I’m not the only one because I’ve been getting lots of husbands emailing in for last minute gift certificates for Mother’s Day. So, if you’re getting this email and you’re a husband, I’m just here to give you a little nudge because you pretty much can’t go wrong with a photography session as a Mother’s Day gift. Or, if you’re a mom, you might just want to drop a few hints like, “Ahem [loudly clearing throat]… Isn’t this beautiful spring weather just perfect for taking pictures with Jill? Oh, how funny, look at this newsletter I just got…” *wink*

Simply email us at or purchase your gift certificate HERE and we will email you one to print out and pop into a pretty little card, just in time to hear, “Oh my goodness…this is exactly what I wanted!!”

Ladies, have a wonderful Mother’s Day. I hope you get everything you deserve!

A Busy Year

Okay…get ready for a some obnoxious horn tootin’ because I’m a little bit proud of myself…If any of you were wondering why I was a little absent from the blog last year, it was because this little business o’ mine grew more last year than any other year. Want some proof? I was published a total of eight times in 2012 which is an all-time high for me. I’m so honored that my work was chosen to be featured in these awesome publications. And a big THANK YOU to the families who participated! You can see these plus earlier published works on my website’s “press” page.

New Headshot of Meeeee!

Ha ha – I finally had some pictures taken of myself. I figured that since I cut all of my hair off I should at least have a new headshot!

Here’s a screen shot from my portrait website. What do you think?
