008008 Welcome to the JPEG Studio's Blog.  

Hello, I'm Jill Steward, owner and operator of the JPEG Studio. I don't consider myself very fashion forward but I do have to decide "What hat to wear today?"  Digital retoucher, salesperson, secretary, photographer, marketer...tax consultant (eek!). I love my job and I hope you enjoy this blog. Feel free to leave comments and share with your friends too.

Thanks for visiting!  ~Jill

What is Kickin' Cancer With Kindness?

Kickin' Cancer With Kindness is a local charitable organization made up of volunteers with the goal to raise money to help Daviess County residents who must travel by car to receive cancer treatments by providing gas cards.

What does the Christmas Scene look like? 

This year's theme is "A Magnolia Christmas!"  Hand decorated with holly and berries on a chalkboard wall by Jill... think black 'n' white buffalo plaid, a white fireplace mantle and classic farmhouse style!

Hiya!  I’m Jill, owner and creator of the JPEG Studio.  I specialize in family photography but over the years I’ve had the opportunity to cover many events from weddings to political campaigns and even travel a little too.

I love the old adage, “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life!” I’m proud my profession allows me to support the local community with my business taxes and help charities like backpack buddies, 4-H and High School After-Proms.  I also support my peer community as a member of the Professional Photographers Association.

Here are a few samples of my work.

Senior Sessions at the JPEG Studio:

The Pre-Consult: Let's plan your session time and go over products and pricing in full detail!

The Shoot: Location or Studio - or both plus your choice of some awesome add-ons like: Add a Sibling, Add a BFF, Add a Videographer, Add a Pet, Add a Stylist, or Add a Meal (The guys love this one).


Unlimited outfits: For most Seniors that means 5-7 outfits. Please bring more than that to give us options, plus any special items you may want to feature in your images. 


Unlimited inside/outside backgrounds which usually translates to about 10-12 different settings.  I like start in the later-afternoon in the studio then we use about half out time outside to get those setting sun, golden light photos.


The fun part: Design your own custom collection  which includes a wall portrait, album, gift prints and wallets.  I ask all decision makers to participate!



Thanks for thinking of me for your Senior photos – It’s Senior Season! Hooray!
