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.

Hi my name is Skye.
I was born in Ankeny, Iowa on March 18, 2010.
I am a dudley-colored yellow lab.
I am my mama's new best friend.
My mama is Jill Brown.
She's a photographer, so you will see lots more of me here.
It's so nice to meet you!

Last Friday I was having a rather unusually bad day.  My husband, I think, was worried about me and said... "Jill, I have a surprise for you.  This surprise is to go with you everywhere.  You are going to celebrate with it when things make you happy and cry with it when things make you sad."  My surprise was Skye.  

Skye is such a good dog.  I have had him for almost a week now and he's very good at going outside to go to the bathroom, coming when he's called and snuggling.  :)  He's good for a 6-week old puppy anyway.  And yes - he goes with me everywhere he is allowed and is baby-sat by my kids when I cannot take him with me.

He is wonderful and I am so glad to have him.

Thank you, Dave.  :)

I love you so much.
