  • Carrie - So pretty! Both the girl and the photography!

  • Jill - Thanks Carrie!!!! 🙂

  • Aimee - Jill, these are amazing as usual! The ones at the end are especially gorgeous!

  • Elizabeth - You are such an amazing photographer! I’m from California and my grandmother lives in Des Moines and I can’t believe you can get amazing pictures from the city next time I visit I’ll be sure to book you! I just saw some of your photo on Pinterest and went straight for your website. I went through all of your website and I couldn’t stop. I have a question. What type of camera do you use and what lenses to give you these amazing pictures? And to accomplish the vibrant colors in your photography are they naturally occurring or do you touch them up? Thank you so much for your time! May the Lord bless you and your family.

  • Jill - Thanks so much Aimee!

  • Jill - Thanks Elizabeth — you are so sweet! 🙂 Such a small world and very cool that your grandma lives here in Des Moines! I photograph with a Canon 5d Mark IV and typically use the following three lenses… 35mm 1.4, 50mm 1.2 and the 135mm 2.0. Would love to photography you when you’re back this way!
