Hi! I’m Jillian. When I’m not photographing families or teaching women to kill the photography game, I’m being tackled by at least 1 of my 5 kiddos, searching for my next Vanilla Dr. Pepper from Sonic (pebble ice for LIFE), and doing my absolute best to make sure everyone I know and love is feeling seen and heard.

I’m married to a firefighter, I’m always trying to find my next sushi fix, and I’ve been taking pictures for as long as I can remember. Connecting with people and capturing their beautiful memories is my favorite thing on earth, yet I still get a tad nervous before every shoot I do.

When I bought a camera kit at Costco a decade ago, I was teaching kindergartners and raising babies—never guessing that I would eventually create my own photography business. More than 10 years later, I’ve perfected the art of connection, detail, and technique to create and build Jillian Goulding Photography into a thriving business that’s been featured everywhere from People Magazine to Extra TV. It’s been a wild ride with lots of ups & downs, but I wouldn’t change a thing.
