I’m Jill! I grew up on a farm, have constant wanderlust, and am madly in love with my husband. I love fashion, travel, and you can often find me lost in a daydream. But most importantly, I’m an artist at my very core. I love the art of photography, even though my journey to become an authentic artist hasn’t been short or easy!
Like most photographers, I just really loved the idea of photos. Moments captured in time, and memories documented, with the ability to look back on them for years to come. I loved the emotions and the art behind every frame. So, as a beginner, I went out and bought the best camera I could afford, and began photographing anyone who would stand still! Well, it was not my finest work…I was a new photographer and my images had the hallmarks of a gal trying to figure out F stops and shutter speeds. My images were nothing special. So, I went back to school, enrolled in a true photography program, and I absorbed all there was to learn. I learned the language, all the terms. I suddenly understood the lighting, the physics, and the mechanics of photography….and I was in love! I started Jillian Marie Photography because I believe beautiful art is something every senior deserves.
