Jill captures natural moments unlike any photographer I have worked with and turns them into true works of art.

Hi! My name is Jill Emmer. I am a photographer in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Before becoming a photographer, I worked in Advertising for many years. I worked for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel newspaper for over 5 years in Advertising - both in print and online advertising. I have also worked for the Madison Newspapers and the Pioneer Press. And finally, I worked for a worldwide pharmaceutical company for three years.

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison with degrees in English Literature and Spanish with a focus in creative writing.  I also was a competitive long distance runner and downhill skier. In addition to those sports, I enjoy biking, waterskiing, hiking, traveling and reading. And of course photography!  I reside in Milwaukee with my two young sons, husband and rescue pup.
