Natural Family and Newborn Photography in Surrey, Sussex and Kent
Welcome! I'm Jo, a newborn and family photographer based in Surrey and I'd love to freeze a moment in time for you and your family. 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 in getting them. Am I the right fit for you? Why not take a little look around my online home to help you decide.
I strive to capture natural, unposed images that let the magic of childhood shine through. But I don't just take photos of your family. I capture moments for you. Because kids just never stop growing! And I know from bitter sweet experience that it won't be long before they're so big that you can barely remember what they were like when they were so little.
So yes I take photos, but what do I really do?
I create memories
What I do
How I work
I aim to capture natural, light-filled images of your family during your photoshoot. So rather than shoot the more traditional family portrait in a studio, my sessions are informal and relaxed. I tend to shoot outdoors, somewhere lovely like a park or a woodland. I also do in home sessions which are more suitable for newborns.
I offer a variety of different session types depending on what you're looking for and your budget. But whichever you choose, I'll be looking for genuine moments and real smiles. I want to capture personalities so that when you look back at your natural family images in years to come, you will remember not just what they looked like but who they were.
I also know that more often than not it is mum who takes all the photos and that means that you're never in them. So I take extra care to make sure I capture some lovely shots of you with your babies. Shots that you won't want to delete, that you'll be proud to display and share. I promise!
Areas I cover
I live in Lingfield and cover areas in Surrey, East Sussex, West Sussex and Kent. Travel within one hour of Lingfield is included in my session fee. I am more than happy to travel further afield for a small fee to cover the extra travel. Towns I cover include, but are not limited to:
Billingshurst, Brighton, Cobham, Crowborough, East Molesey, Esher, Forest Row, Godalming, Hartfield, Haywards Heath, Leatherhead, Lingfield, Mayfield, Oxted, Petworth, Pulborough, Reigate, Richmond, Sevenoaks, Thames Ditton, Tunbridge Wells, Virginia Water, Weybridge, Windlesham
“Jo has captured some truly beautiful images of our daughter. She is very patient and has been fantastic at putting our camera-shy daughter at ease. I would highly recommend her.”

A little bit about me
My little family is made up of my husband, daughter and our Labradoodle, Bella. That's them up there. Our little girl is 8 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. It's not a cliche - 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....
