The Brown Family

Sneak Peek: The Brown Family


JHillis Photography met up with Levi, Meghan, Maddison and Rylee at Bryant Commons Park in Hinesville, Georgia, for a family session. Maddie is full of energy and has one of the most bubbly personalities you’ll ever encounter. Not to mention, she is hilarious!

Meghan and Levi met while attending Truett McConnell in the North Georgia mountains. The two married in June of 2012 and now have two little girls at the center of their universe. Levi’s job with the army relocated them to Kansas and now to the sweet south.

We loved spending time with the Brown family and hope to catch up with them again soon!

JHillis Photography happily introduces you to one of The Habersham School’s seniors- Jacquelyn Harn. We had the opportunity to spend a beautiful Savannah morning downtown around historic Jones Street. All I can say is Savannah NEVER disappoints.

This young lady’s leadership has granted her acceptance into Georgia Tech. Jacquelyn is seeking to study International Affairs and pursuing law school after her undergraduate studies.

JHillis Photography would like to introduce you to Butler Christian Academy senior, Valya Purtell. We met Valya at her home in Savannah, GA for a more personal shoot. Their lovely home backs up to a quiet small pond with bamboo and oak trees. Simply beautiful.


Valya is quite the young lady. Math is one of her favorite subjects to study at  Butler Christian Academy. She has attended Butler from a young age, and she has made friendships that will last a lifetime.


We wish Valya the best as she completes her senior year and begins college.

A Cousin Christmas

Sneak Peek: A Cousin Christmas

These are the roots of JHillis Photography. For the past three years the Hillis cousins have all come together to take pictures during the Christmas holiday. We laugh, make fun of one another, and reminisce on times new and old. It’s a time we can catch up with one another and remember what this whole season is about. Family.

These pictures replace what money tries to buy. These memories are what we share with our grandparents each year for Christmas. I can say, it’s their most favorite gift every time. I won’t lie, we enjoy it as well. It can be hard to find the time for us all to get together but in the end it is always worth it.

A lot has changed for our family this year. Joel turned three. Vivilyn celebrated her first birthday. Morgan and Billy joined the married club in October. Jordan and Bailey celebrated five years of marriage. Megan and Justin celebrated two years of marriage. Such excitement! Such chaos!


This Hillis clan would like to wish your family a wonderful and safe Christmas season. Don’t forget the true meaning of the holiday season and hold those dear to you close to your heart.

The Ricks Family

Sneak Peak: The Ricks Family


JHillis Photography had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with the Ricks family at Savannah’s historic Wormsloe Plantation and State Park. Casey and Elizabeth have been married nineteen and a half years, and they are the parents to four beautiful children; Ashlyn, Emma, Casey Jr., and Mary.

jhillisphoto_2649Ashlyn, age 17 is the eldest of the bunch and a senior at the Habersham School in Savannah, Georgia. This young lady excels in academics and strives to be a leader on and off the basketball court. Emma, age 15 enjoys basketball and volleyball in her free time. Casey, age 12 is a young man who enjoys all that the outdoors have to offer. His favorites are hunting, fishing and basketball. Last, but not least, we have Mary, age 7. This young lady may seem shy, but I learned she has a little sass in her! Mary enjoys playing with her dolls and My Little Ponies. As a family,  they all enjoy being outside enjoying nature and the company of one another.

JHillis Photography would like to congratulate Ashlyn on her upcoming graduation and wish her well in the next chapter of her life as she embarks on her college years.

Mr. & Mrs. Billy Roy

JHillis Photography had the honor and great joy to capture the special day of Billy Roy and Morgan Collins.This couple has a special connection to JHillis Photography, the bride is my cousin!

Make-up by Mary Elaine

This “ROYal” wedding was simply amazing. From the estate flair in the jewelry, southern hydrangeas, and lace gown, this wedding was one for the books!

The couple decided to have a private setting for their first look at one another. SO. ADORABLE! They wanted to utilize their time together as well as achieve the traditional feel of the walk down the isle. He cried. She beamed. Match made in heaven!

The couple was surrounded by friends and family, who traveled from around the corner and from miles away. This couple is truly blessed.

Join me in celebrating the union of this couple and wishing them a lifetime of happiness!

Tonja & Alyssa

Sneak Peek: Mother- Daughter

Just in time for Mother’s Day, JHillis Photography had the pleasure of spending a Saturday morning in Statesboro, Georgia with this lovely duo. Tonja and her daughter, Alyssa, are such a pleasure to spend time with.

Tonja, a Customer Service Representative at Georgia Power, enjoys building relationships and interacting with her customers. I have the pleasure of working alongside Tonja and can absolutely say that there is never a dull moment when she is around!

Alyssa’s best and life-long friend, Rosie joined us as well! Alyssa and Rosie have known each other since 3rd grade and are joined at the hip. They both are freshmen at Statesboro High. Tonja says she is like her second daughter to her and always enjoys having Rosie around. I’m not sure what the girls enjoyed more, taking pictures or seeing Tonja and I argue about how to take pictures. Got to love them all!
