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.

D Family!

The D Family was the winner of the JDRF Silent Auction last fall.  I am thrilled to be able to photograph this family - especially since their bid went all to JDRF!

For those of you who do not know, my oldest daughter and my father both have Type 1 Diabetes, so this foundation is very near and dear to my heart.  Type 1 Diabetes is where their body does not produce the insulin it needs in order for the cells to absorb the nutrients needed to live.  JDRF researches both alternative therapies, such as insulin pumps, and cures for diabetes.    (Go JDRF!)

Thank you so much, D Family, for supporting JDRF and letting me shoot your family session!
