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.

My sister and her beautiful family

This is my sister.  She's absolutely beautiful inside and out.  So is her family that I just love to pieces.  I did a very quick session for her a few weeks ago on the front porch of their new home.  :)

I just love these people.

Baptism times FIVE!

Last month I took a drive to Hampton, IA to photograph five little ones who are all from the same family.  All five of them were getting baptized the same day on their family's century farm.  What a really awesome thing to be a part of!  It was such a perfect day too!  Nice and cool - such a break from the 100+ degree days we've been getting lately.
