Treasures of us.
Jilian, there are no words to describe how incredibly special you are to us. Your ability to capture "our" moments is magical. The laughter, tears, quirks, and special bonds, all in one perfect and priceless gift. It's only natural that as time goes on and our children grow, some of the memories will fade but I'll have these treasures you have given me that will keep them alive forever. Thank you and we love you!" - Kristen
As we are.
"When Jillian picks up her camera, it's a given that she'll capture magic. Her eye for the perfect lighting, catching the special bond between siblings, and her ability to turn the everyday into priceless memories are just a few of her many talents. Family photos can be stressful, but with her vibrant personality and way with kids, she turns the sometimes dreaded event into beautiful moments that you will always treasure. She's captured my family as they are, chaos included, and I couldn't be more grateful. " - Monica
It's the little things.
"Jillian has photographed our family numerous times, and I am always in tears everytime I look at all of the images she gives us. Whether it is in our home, or at an outdoor location special to us, she captures the moments & little things that make my little family who we are. Not just the perfect moments, but the hard ones too that will remind me just what life was like at this point & time. Her creativity shines through in her work & she is simply wonderful." - Christina
Giggles & Fun.
"With our first baby, we used a different photographer for newborn photos. She tried to do very posed shots and when he wouldn't sleep at all, it was a nightmare and left us very disappointed with our pictures. My fear was that this would happen again. Well, this new baby didn't sleep much for the shoot, but with Jillian, it worked out. We chose to do lifestyle photos rather than posed newborn ones. She was very patient while I tried to get him to sleep. She was able to go with the flow and get some great pictures, even with the baby awake. When he finally slept for a short time, she worked fast and took several beautiful shots. I was so thankful for the way Jillian handled my two year old. She was in our home for nearly three hours and at times my older son didn't want to cooperate. Jillian was very patient and had a lot of tricks to help him sit for pictures. She wasn't afraid to be silly with him and make him laugh. I think that was my favorite thing about working with Jillian. Sleep-deprived with a three week old, Jillian's lighthearted attitude took the pressure off me to make my son sit still. We love the gorgeous photos that Jillian captured of our family, but what we appreciated most of all was get presence and creativity with our children. Jillian will definitely be our go-to photographer for future family photos and we can't recommend her highly enough."
