Hi there.

My photo
Jill Brown has over 15 years of experience in the field of photography. She has studied photography at Missouri State University and Maryville University, St. Louis. 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 currently has work displayed in and around the Des Moines area as well as work in personal collections around the world. 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.

Spellman Family Session | Des Moines Family Photographer

Date:  November 7, 2009
Location:  Spellman Home

Courtney called me on Friday and said... "It's going to be a BeAuTiFuL weekend, any way you can squeeze us in?"  Let me think... YES!  This was a fun shoot because instead of meeting at a park, we did their portrait session at their home.  It was great for the kids because it was familiar and all their favorite things were right there.

When I walked in the door, their son started crying.  Apparently he thought I was a babysitter.  I got out my camera and took a couple of photos of him and then turned the camera so he could see the images I just took.  He loved it.  I asked him if I could take some pictures of him today.  He said yes... and gave me a "high-five".  :)  So cute!

The oldest daughter was a beauty and a complete ham!  Hilarious!  The youngest daughter was so, so sweet and had beautiful blue eyes.   

Thank you Courtney and Sean for opening your home to me and allowing me to capture your family.
