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.
I have known Lisa and Charles for about 3 years. GREAT couple. LOVE to hang out with them. EASY going. FUN people. Their kids are AWESOME and play so well with mine. Most nights we hang out and it gets late before we realize it! I am fortunate enough to have been able to photograph their children both this year and last.
This year we did their session at their home - which was awesome!
I traveled to Indianola for this family session to the Kumm family home. I really love to do sessions at home because everyone is so much more comfortable there. Lisa and her family have a wonderful piece of property overlooking a small lake just outside Indianola. It was very beautiful.
Thank you Lisa and Toby for allowing me to photograph your family!

Lindsey and Chris are quite a fun and creative couple and I had an absolute blast photographing their wedding! I loved that they got ready in adjoining rooms and interacted while both were getting ready. I loved that they ran down the isle after they were hitched. I loved that they love each other so very much and it shows in every moment of they day. Lots of love going on! :)
