Billi J Miller is an author, photographer, speaker and writer from east-central Alberta, Canada. Previously a city-living, 9-5 Government worker, Billi moved to the country to marry the man of her dreams in 2010, and traded concrete and traffic for life on a 100-year old prairie farm.
When Billi married her husband, a 4th generation Canadian farmer, she noticed there were very little photographs of their rich, 100-year farming heritage. As a passionate photographer she felt called to do something about it. Harnessing her entrepreneurial spirit, she created a successful business as a photographer and writer. In 2016, she authored the first of a two-book series about the remarkable contributions of farmwives and has since been recognized on CBC, Global TV, City TV, as well as countless newspapers and magazines both in Canada and in the US.
Billi is a photographer and writer who believes that families should have a meaningful collection of photos that remind them every day why it is they love living where they do and who it is they love. Miller has truly found her passion "telling stories from the heart and stories that matter" with her work.
In 2018, Billi has started an online Blog Series titled: “The Women Among Us” where she continues the dialogue she started with her Farmwives book project by celebrating and honouring women from all walks of life.
Billi speaks at conferences and other professional and personal events regularly where she delivers a powerful talk on the contributions and evolving roles of farm women, and about her own experience overcoming adversity and “blooming where she planted”.
Billi resides with her husband and their two young girls on a 107-year old farm in Alberta, Canada where she works from her home office, her favourite local coffee shops, or on the road while traveling for an event. When Billi isn’t working she loves to travel, read, and unwind watching true crime documentaries.
