  • May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them

  • Today is International Women's Day, an opportunity for us all to recognize women's accomplishments and the impact they have on the world. Last night a friend and I were chatting about some of the early posts we've seen in recognition of this day, and how some of them resonated and some of them didn't feel like they hit [...]
  • Over the Sea to Skye

  • Months later, with my desk cleared of work, and our advocacy work shifting to a different phase for the year, I finally had some time this week to sit down and sort through our trip to Scotland in the fall. Windswept, rain-soaked, and warmed by the sun, we ventured from Edinburgh up through the Central Highlands to [...]
  • Jude

  • It's been a month and I still have no idea what to say about any of this. Has it only been a month since our world changed forever? It feels longer. Has it been a whole month? That can't be. I can't have survived this many days and weeks. His pictures are still right there on my phone, with a quick scroll. A month [...]
  • A year in squares

  • Happy birthday, little jprophoto! One year ago I finally hopped on the Instagram train, and it has been such a fun platform to look at life from. I'm diving into my ninth year in this wonderful industry and I've watched it grow and change in a lot of ways in that short time. New ways to reach out to our people, one [...]
  • Adventuring - Port Elgin Photographer

  • In our house we place a great deal of importance and value on our friends - the family we've chosen for ourselves. Our kids have far more aunts and uncles and cousins than they were actually born into, and we're pretty in love with the village we've been building. I've known Rachel for a very long time and she h [...]
  • 2015. Wow. ♥

  • I don't know where to start. This year! This incredible year! What an honour to have shared it with all of you. For awhile now I've been thinking about how I could possibly turn this beautiful 2015 into a single post, and sorting through these images has been a huge undertaking. I loved it all. I loved you all. I l [...]
  • There are never going to be 'the right words'

  • Jizo - given to me recently by my beautiful friend Andrea. I'm sharing him with all of you. ♥ I'm struggling a little bit today. It's Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, and I'm going to take a moment to talk about that before I get back to my regular posts full of love and laughter. I have about a thousand thi [...]
  • Housewarming

  • Well hi everyone! Welcome to the new www.jillpromoli.com! First, a huge thank you to my very handsome partner in crime for all of his help putting this together. Craig's work on my website has been invaluable right from the start, so I'd like to take this opportunity to give him a high five for yet another job well [...]
  • A story in six words

  • There's an old story that floats around, unconfirmed (but compelling, nonetheless).  As it goes, Hemingway once boasted that he could tell a story in six words, with a beginning, a middle and an end.  When asked to prove it he grabbed a napkin and wrote down these six words: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."
