J i l l i a n F r a n c o i s Creator. Artist. Adventurer.
Hello. I'm Jillian. Thanks for stopping by!
There is an alchemy in capturing the action, the spirit, the emotion, and the celebration of your most meaningful moments in a way that's truly authentic to you. To do it best takes finding a photographer that you connect with, so you can be comfortable in the process, fully present in your moments, and confident that the photos will tell the story.
So who am I? Authentic to a fault, adaptable, patient, excitable but a calming presence within chaos, and a fervid athlete. If I can't do it fully, I don't do it. I started my professional career at 16, landing my first paid gig taking promotional photos for my local high school's bands. By 19, I had already completed four plus years worth of specialty photography coursework and abandoned college to travel the country working as a tour photographer for major label international touring bands.
Since then, I have worked professionally in nine countries on three continents, have multiple page spreads in a multitude of international magazines, captured over 125 weddings, and because I can't be my most authentic self without some form of meaningful help and soccer in my life - I also coach for a Kings Hammer Premier Club locally in Greater Cincinnati for 10-13 year old girls.
Send me a hello! No idea is too much, or too weird, let's chat!
