We had the good fortune of connecting with Jill Alexander and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jill, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
In order to help me succeed, I must be organized. I need to have everything laid out in front of me and in order. I feel like organization is a top quality to have when running a business. If I’m organized, I’m more successful.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am super proud to be where I am today with my photography business. It definitely wasn’t smooth sailing to get to where I am though. The photography world has gotten to be somewhat oversaturated and it can be hard to get new clients at times. However, I’ve persevered and have never given up. I now have clients who I see multiple times a year and keep returning year after year. The highest sense of gratitude is when I get a referral from a past client. It’s like they’re saying, “She’s the best and you can’t go wrong!” I want my clients to feel comfortable with me and I love capturing the joy and tiny moments.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If I was to give an itinerary to my best friend visiting me, we would definitely spend the day exploring Fort Worth. We would start with coffee at Ampersand and then hit brunch at Brewed off Magnolia. We would then spend the day exploring the rest of Magnolia and then head to The Stockyards for a day of some real Fort Worth fun. We’d stop in for a snack and a drink at Biscuit Bar in the Stockyards for sure. For night life, we would of course head downtown. We would walk around Sundance Square and go in and out of the shops. And to end the night dinner and drinks at Del Frisco’s!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I am dedicating my shoutout to my husband, Curtis. He’s been the most supportive and amazing husband throughout my small business journey.
