Lilly earned an M.F.A. in Fine Art Photography from Georgia State University, under Guggenheim recipient John McWilliams, himself a student of Harry Callahan. As an undergraduate at the University of Georgia, she studied film making, receiving an A.B.J. in Mass Media from the University of Georgia.
