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.

Fleming Family

I said it before and I will say it again... It is really awesome to shoot the same family every year!  I have been taking family photos for the Flemings every year since their beautiful little girl was born.  This is such an awesome family - fun, friendly, smart, creative, lovely, beautiful family - and I am very lucky to know them.

Here's to another year!!!  :)

Obrecht Family

It always makes me so happy to have a family come back every year for their family session.  I love to see how much the kids have grown and catch up on how the family is doing.  The Obrecht family is such a sweet and kind bunch of people.  Their sons are absolutely adorable... and so it mom and dad!

Great to see you all again this year!

We rescheduled Katelyn's senior session several times in the last several months... too hot... too rainy...  But finally the day arrived and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect afternoon!  A sunny, warm day in September!

Best of luck to you Katelyn!  You will do great things!
