About Jill

Hey Y’all

I'm Jill. I was born in Texas, but have called New Orleans home since I graduated from LSU in 1998. I keep myself busy being a mom to my 17 year old son Nathan, who is the center of my universe. I adore all things preppy, traveling the world, photography, coffee, beautiful light, outdoor cafes, and documenting precious moments. I got my degree in Education and taught early childhood, but happily retired after 20 years to focus on my business. My love for photography started when I was around 4 with my dad when he bought me my first camera. I discovered a love for photographs as a child and became obsessed with taking pictures. I spent my whole childhood looking at all our family pictures albums, over and over again. Once I got older my camera was always with me. I never wanted to miss a thing, I had to document each and every event. I finally decided to pursue my passion in 2010 and taught myself everything I could about photography. I have a love for freezing that moment in time and seeing the world through my camera. It's those memories of looking at a picture that can take you back in time, make you laugh, make you cry, but most importantly hold that moment special forever.
