Jill the Photographer

Jill is a Certified Professional Photographer who lives in the beautiful mountains outside of Hendersonville, North Carolina. She got her first camera at the age of 10 and has been making images ever since. Until the pandemic, Jill focused primarily on documentary and photojournalism.  Her award winning work has been selected by reknown photographers for gallery exhibits across the United States. She is a documenter at heart. In 2021, she made the decision to expand her photography into portraiture. Much of her work includes environmental portraits in which she strives to reveal a window into a person’s life by capturing them in their home, place of work, or location they love.


As a firm believer of giving back to society, Jill has donated her time and talent to charities in need of photographic services. Please contact her if you think she is a good fit for your charity. Jill was the founding president of the board of directors for the Dallas Center for Photography (DCP). DCP’s mission is to serve as a focal point for creators and appreciators of all forms of photography through education, mentorship, exhibitions, and community outreach.


Jill the Person

Jill was born in Ohio but has lived as a bit of a nomad residing in nine states and two countries. She has close ties to North Carolina having lived in Charlotte for 13 years and residing parttime in Henderson County for the past 11 years. Jill and her husband re-located permanently in 2022. Because of her curiosity and experience living in a variety of places, Jill is able to quickly connect with people and find a common interest. 

Prior to becoming a full-time photographer, Jill was a technology executive for over 20 years at major financial institutions. She has a bachelor of science in computer science and a master of science in remote sensing. Besides being married to her Texan husband, she is the proud mother of an adult son and doting grandmother of two young grandsons.
