About Jillian

My name is Jillian McDermott. I am a photographer and a proud mommy! I absolutely LOVE what I do!

Ok, I had a whole biography written down here but when I re-read it, I almost fell asleep:)

Here is some information about me in a nutshell:

1.) I take my camera almost everywhere I go because I'm the nut that sees something I need to photograph

2.) I have an identical twin. She really is my carbon copy.

3.) I LOVE LOVE LOVE hot sauce! It must go on most of what I eat!

4.) No matter how many weddings I shoot, I still cry during the ceremony. But no worries...it helps me really capture those "real" moments.

5.) I love capturing newborns and children, from the smell, the snuggles, the candidness and love the challenge they give me:)

6.) I know it sounds cliche but my children are my inspiration. I know how important it is capture every moment of your children's childhood, and to always remember them in that way, forever.

I am a natural light photographer and shoot in studio or on location in Northeast PA, but am always willing to travel. I was voted Best Photographer of the Poconos 2012 by Greatestaroundpoconos.com and have also been published and featured on many wedding blogs. My style is a mix of a bit of candid, posed and photojournalistic. I love to capture moments naturally because it allows a story to be told. I love attention to detail from baby toes, to the embellishments on your wedding gown. I strive to make each session comfortable, yet professional, and mostly...FUN! I want to make sure everyone enjoys themselves and can be themselves. I love meeting new clients for the first time and by the time the session ends, have made new friends.

I would love to work with you sometime, so please, feel free to contact me.
