Wedding Photographer Palm Springs

Photography at The Living Desert Museum


My name is Jillian and I am a Wedding Photographer Palm Springs.  My company is Pure Photography and we provide photography services throughout Southern California.  Today we had the honor of capturing the wedding of this beautiful couple.

I spent this day photographing another super HOT couple!  Literally!  I think it was about 107 the day these two got married.  But you have to hand it to them, they were total troopers, braved the heat and ended up with some beautiful keepsake images.  It started out warm but by the the time the ceremony was over the temperature had come down and it was a picture perfect evening!  This couple got married at The Living Desert in Palm Springs Ca.  This venue is just gorgeous whether you are an animal lover or not.  The scenery and the gardens are just amazing.  Congratulations Mark & Melinda!  We wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Corona Newborn Photographer

Family & Children’s Photography

Portraits for baby girls!



I am a Corona Newborn Photographer, my name is Jillian and my studio is Pure Photography.  I have been photographing children and newborns in the southern California area since 2010!

If you are expecting and are considering doing a newborn photography session when your baby arrives, you may want to start researching photographers soon, as newborn sessions go quickly.  The window that we like to photograph newborn babies is within the first ten days of baby’s life, and its normal that a session can last a couple of hours.  So it is always good to be prepared for that.  If you are coming into the studio, you will want to wear comfortable clothing, and bring everything you will need for your baby.  If you have any sentimental items that you wish to incorporate into the photographs, please bring those with you as well.

Our studio is located near the Corona Riverside border, but we do on location portraits as well.

If you are interested in booking a session, or just have some questions feel free to give us a call at (951) 534-7457.  You can also drop us a note via the contact page of our website

This is baby B!  Welcome to the world beautiful!!

Redlands Wedding Photographer

Seventh Day Adventist Church Wedding


My name is Jillian and I am a Redlands Wedding Photographer.  My company Pure Photography has been photographing weddings since 2009 and loving every minute of it.

Becky and Alex are pretty much every photographers dream couple…beautiful, easy going, tons of fun and very very much in love.  For their big day, they opted to do what we call a first look.  For those of you who don’t mind seeing each other before the ceremony, I absolutely recommend it.  This really gives you a chance to take each other in. You can relax and get some beautiful wedding photos both before and after the ceremony without the stress of having to shuffle everyone around like mad.

Becky and Alex had their ceremony at the Redlands Seventh Day Adventist Church in Redlands Ca.  This church is absolutely gorgeous with beautiful lighting, detailed stained glass and amazing woodwork.  They put a lot of time and love into this church and it shows in just about every detail.  Since my couple was really looking forward to some beautiful keep sake photos, we took a little ride over to the Redlands Smiley Library.  Our groom Alex found this little gem  while he was out and about.  It was a wonderful call on his part, as the library has great history and architecture which lends itself really well to artistic wedding photography.

For their reception, they chose Heritage Hall of Redlands where they finished the night off celebrating, toasting and dancing the rest of the night away.  It was a truly great day, made all the better by a really fun couple!

Congratulations you two, & I wish you both many years of love and happiness.  I hope you enjoy your photos as much as I love showing them off!!

Riverside Photographer

Fairmount Park Family Portraits


Hello!  My name is Jillian and I am a Riverside Photographer!  I offer family portraits and studio photography in Riverside and throughout southern California.

If you ever get the chance to do generational photographs, I highly recommend that you do them.  I know it is tough to get everyone together, but later on down the line, the pay off will be completely worth it.  This family pulled it together from three different states, all meeting in Riverside, CA for a family reunion.  And when I say generational we had Great Grandma who I believe was 90 to Great Grandson who was 15.  Every one was a trooper that day, as it was HOT!!  We all got up early to beat the heat and got some beautiful family photos.

If you are looking to set up your own photography session feel free to give us a call at (951) 534-7457, or if you have questions, you can drop us a line via our contact page at

Palm Springs Portrait Photographer – Modeling Portfolio

My name is Jillian and I am a Palm Springs Portrait Photographer!

Our photography studio is located in Riverside, but when we get the opportunity to travel for a fun session we usually jump at the chance!  The windmills on the way to Palm Springs are one of California’s most known icons, and when I got an opportunity to do a session out that way, we were really excited.  I love unique locations and also being able to put some spin on a few that have been photographed many times.  We had a great day, shooting for a few hours and finally had to call it quits as the wind started picking up towards the end of the day.  I can only handle so much free “micro-dermabrasion” so reluctantly we had to pack it in.  I was hoping to get some fun night shots in but this is what nature gave us, to bad, but there is always the next time!  So really, I can hardly complain, a beautiful girl and a beautiful day, gets you photos like these…

Kate was looking to add to her modeling portfolio, so with hair and make up done, a couple of outfit changes and we are off to the races.  If you are looking to add to your portfolio feel free to give us a call at (951) 534-7457 or drop us a line through the contact form of our website

Many agencies are looking for versatility in a portfolio along with some of the safer head shots.  So let us know what you need and we will be happy to work something out.

Portrait Photographer – Fashion Photography

Hello my name is Jillian and I am a Portrait Photographer in Riverside CA!  While we are located in the Inland Empire we offer photography services throughout southern California.

Meet the lovely Crystal.  She was referred to me by Stacy the owner of Fancy Disaster who owns a really fun and eclectic vintage clothing store.  You can see her etsy store here. Since Crystal was opening up her own vintage clothing shop, she wanted to do a fun session in the spirit of her new shop which she aptly named Naked Cowgirl Vintage.  You can see her blog site here.   This is one of those shoots that I really love to do, lots of creative ideas, a fearless model and lots of girl time!  These are just a few of my favorites, and if you are a vintage lover, do yourself a favor and check out the girl’s stores.  They always have such great finds.  Enjoy!

Portrait Photographer - Riverside, Inland Empire

Corona Family Photography

Hello!  My name is Jillian and I offer Corona Family Photography here in the Inland Empire.  But enough about me, lets meet the Finnel’s!

On the day of our scheduled shoot, we all met up at one of our local parks and really just hung out and took some pictures.  I love days like that, it makes my job soooooo easy (well…except for the wind and the cold)!!!  But this was just another gorgeous February day in California and doing a walking tour of this beautiful park and getting some really great shots in between makes for some amazing photos.  I was warned ahead of time that NOBODY was excited about having the family portraits done, so I was a little concerned.  I think the expectation was that everyone was going to get hauled down to a basement of the nearest Sears wearing itchy sweaters and ridiculous bow ties.  Hopefully I didn’t torture them tooooooo much!! LOL!!

A couple of things to think about when planning for your family’s photo shoot:

1.  Don’t put it off.  Kids grow so fast and before you know it they are off to college or have kids of their own.  This is your family’s art work and really the only lasting mementos you will have of them as they grow up and move on.

2. Be comfortable and have some fun.  I think mom’s outfit choices here were really awesome.  Everyone looks like they belong together, but not matchy matchy.  Nice work mom!

3. Don’t forget to take a few minutes out for a few shots of you and your spouse together.  You are all dressed and ready to go, so enjoy each other for a few minutes & hopefully the kids won’t get into to much trouble while we are busy!  HA!!
