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

Hello! My name is Jill Emmer.

I reside in a suburb of Milwaukee with my two young sons, husband and rescue pup.

I worked in Advertising for many years at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Madison Newspapers and the Pioneer Press.

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! 

Thank you for visiting!
