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 schools bands. By 19 I had already completed four years of photography coursework and abandoned college to travel the west coast working as a tour photographer for an international touring band for two months.
Since then I have worked in nine countries on three continents, have multiple page spreads in a multitude of magazines, captured over 125 weddings, and because I can't be my most authentic self without some form of soccer in my life- I also coach for a Premier girls soccer club locally in Greater Cincinnati.
Send me a hello! No idea is too much, or too weird, let's chat!
