Childhood is fleeting and as mums we naturally want to capture every second of it. Each time you look at your child, do you just want to freeze the frame?
To always remember them like this? Me too.
So as a mum and a family photographer, I strive to capture natural, unposed
images that let the wonder, innocence and purity that children are full of shine through.
But choosing a family photographer is a big decision. It's not just about the photos you end up with, but the experience you have getting them. Am I good fit for your family? Take a look around my little online home to help you decide.
I'm Jo and I'm a family photographer based in Surrey. I live with my husband, daughter and our Labradoodle, Bella. That's them up there.
Our little girl is six now and I still can't quite believe how quickly she is growing up. So I totally get it. I get that desire to capture their innocence and purity before you forget it. Childhood really is fleeting.
On a more personal note, I love reading. I fall asleep most nights with my kindle in my hand. I've probably seen Dirty Dancing more times than anyone should really admit to, and I don't think there is an episode of Friends I haven't seen dozens of times (I'm an 8?!).
Chocolate is my weakness. I'm not above stealing from my daughter's stash if there is nothing else to satisfy my craving. Ssshhh....
I aim to capture natural, light-filled images of your family during your photo shoot. So rather than shoot the more traditional family portrait in a studio, my sessions are informal and relaxed can either take place in your own home or out and about somewhere lovely. A park, a woodland, or perhaps even a castle (as there are quite a lot of those around here).
I look for genuine moments and real smiles that will tell your family's story in the most authentic way. I want to capture your little ones personalities so that when you look back at your natural family portrait images in years to come, you will remember not just what they looked like but who they were.
If that sounds good to you, then let's chat...
