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!

Joel Thomas Growing Up

Sneak Peek: Joel Thomas Growing Up

When our son was born on September 18th 2013, I decided I would take monthly pictures of him and document his first year of life in pictures. I had a fairly decent camera and we didn’t have the money for professional photographer each month. So early morning photo sessions became something Joel and I did.

I couldn’t just buy the cute stickers and pose him with a teddy bear; I went all out! Little did I know the task I was undertaking! Joel was an early riser, so each month I would wake up extra early, set up a mock studio in the living room, and take his pictures. Most of the time all before my wife Bailey got out of the bed.

I learned a lot about my camera as the months progressed. And learned a lot about Joel. We had to stop at times. There were times when we had to try another day. Wardrobe changes had to be made. Sometimes, only one picture looked half decent. I can say, with all the negative, I don’t regret taking the time to document this brief moment in his life.

Joel is four now and just started his first year of school. It’s harder to get him to be still, and I have to bribe him to take a picture. Having a kid of my own makes family pictures fun. I understand that sometimes you just have to stop and ask them how they want the picture to look. It’s okay to take a silly picture, they are always the one right before the perfect shot!

The Wood Family

Sneak Peek: The Woods Family

JHillis Photography met up with Glen and Cristen to celebrate Mackenzie’s first birthday with a family session. It was a beautiful afternoon at Red Gate Farm Trail in Savannah, Georgia. Mackenzie loved the attention and I think Mom and Dad had a little fun too!

Glen and Cristen were high school sweethearts and now have grown into a family of three with their little princess at the center of it all. I can attest that Mackenzie has her Daddy wrapped TIGHT around her little finger! It truly is exciting to see this family and the love they share.


We wish Mackenzie a ‘happy birthday’ and a full year of firsts!

Cameron & Kayla’s Engagement

Sneak Peek: Cameron & Kayla’s Engagement Session

JHillis Photography had the pleasure of spending an afternoon at the Old Freeman Family Farm in Coopersville, Georgia with Cameron and Kayla. Cameron proposed this past July and the two are excited tie the knot next September here at the farm with close friends and family.

Sunset on the farm is a beautiful place. From the pecan trees, tire swings, long dirt driveway, and a front porch with rocking chairs; this venue has everything to offer. Even a barn with old wooden pews!


We are so excited for these two and can’t wait to celebrate with them in September.

Join me in congratulating the future Mr. & Mrs. Corbin as they embark on this journey together!

Mr. & Mrs. Fairbanks

Sneak Peek: Mr. & Mrs. Fairbanks

JHillis Photography had the great honor and joy to take part in Alex and Elizabeth’s special day. We first met the couple during their engagement session and were excited to see them tie the knot.

Alex and Elizabeth chose the beautiful Lucy Belle Farms in Pembroke, Georgia as their venue. Simply astonishing! The couple walked down the aisle settled under an Oak tree on the front lawn. Traditional pews, Canon in D played on the strings of a violin, surrounded by close friends and family made everything picture perfect.

These two were surrounded by those they have know for years, some a lifetime. Seeing them all interact; encouraging, reminiscing, and caring for one another, truly expressed their friendship and love to the bride and groom.

Alex and Elizabeth know how to throw a party. The evening was filled with laughter, corn-hole, giant Jenga & tic-tac-toe, and dancing into the night. I think the guests loved the many cake choices and glow sticks after dark.

JHillis Photography wishes the newly, Mr. & Mrs. Fairbanks a happy, long, and loving marriage. May you forever seek the spark that we see here.

Chase & Becca’s Engagement

Sneak Peek: Chase & Becca Engagement

JHillis Photography had the joy and pleasure of ringing in the New Year with an Engagement Session. The sleigh bells are gone, and I can hear those church bells! This one is a little more special though, it’s my little brother!!! How is this even possible?

We spent the morning with Chase and Becca at Griffin’s Lake in Guyton, Georgia. These two like to spend time there fishing, riding the dirt roads in Chase’s truck, and trying to catch Pokémon to make any trip an adventure.

These two haven’t been Facebook official for long but if you ask anyone who truly knows these two, they were dating years before they ever realized. Chase and Becca met in 2010 while attending high school at Savannah Early College. That budding friendship became something more this past year, and we are excited to be a part of it.


We wish Chase and Becca the best!

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.

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.

As a family,  they all enjoy being outside enjoying nature and the company of one another.

The Taylor Family

Sneak Peek: The Taylor Family

JHillis Photography had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with the Taylor family in downtown Savannah. All the way from Memphis to Savannah; Jason, Timberly, and their son, Roman, are now forming roots in the beautiful Coastal Empire.


Jason serves our country in the United Sates Army and Timberly is a local teacher. Roman is in the first grade and his favorite subject is Math. This seven year old was so funny. Everything from his poses to the things he would say… Timberly assured me that their was never a dull moment in their home.
