i'm glad you're here.

I'm Jill Skoglund

Colorado born and raised. I grew up with dreams of being a famous singer. I was sure that I was going to be the next Mariah Carey. I was devastated when I found out that you actually have to know how to sing to become a singer. I never gave up dreaming though... and I still find my inner Mariah Carey in the shower once in a while... I stumbled upon photography by accident. I have always been creative. When our kids were little we practiced pinching our pennies. We didn't have a lot left over for family photos so, I decided I would try my hand at taking them myself. It turns out that I wasn't half bad. I started taking photos of my kids every year and I would post them to Facebook. I had a few friends comment that they would love for me to take their family photos and BOOM. My business was born! I started out with portrait photography and while I still love a beautiful portrait... I am much more interested in the soul behind it. I want to see how you shine, what makes you shine. I want to capture your light and help you love the photo staring back at you.
