Hi there.

My photo

She spent time working on her personal fine art work for many years and in 2003 started her first wedding and portrait photography business in St. Louis, MO. Jill moved to Des Moines, IA in 2005 and has continued her wedding and portrait business along with her fine art photography.

Jill uses both medium format film cameras and digital formats to create her images. This is how the artist describes her work: “My work is a reflection of everyday life and places. I chose the medium of photography as a tool to capture the essence of the person or place. I create images to depict the subject as they are remembered in the mind. Not posed or unnatural, but as a window into the intimate world of the subject.” Jill Brown is a member of Professional Photographers of America.

The Eisenmanns

I spent last weekend with my sister and her family at their home in St. Louis. Part of the reason for my visit was to spend the day taking family photographs for them. There is something so deeply special about taking photos of your own family. These are your memories you are creating. Not for someone who's hired you to help them create their memories... but your memories... MY MEMORIES.

There is something special about editing images of your own family. To look so closely into my sister's eyes is like looking into the past at all of the women who make up our family tree.

My sister has three beautiful children and a great husband. I enjoy spending time with them... good company, good food, good drink, good conversation ... good times.

Here are a few of my favorites from the day...
