Hello, I am Jo!

A professional photographer who loves telling your story through my lens and capturing the small but important details of life.

Specialising in both family and branding photography, I document your story and your unique style into lasting memories. 


My approach is a friendly and relaxed one, I play with your small people to help them feel at ease,

whilst having a cuppa and a chat with you, or I disappear into the background so you would forget I was there.

We will get photos you will treasure, the photos you will pass on to your children, that tell your story, and say 'this is us!'

Have a look at my packages to see which suits you best.


I know of the immense joy and freedom running your own business can give you, I am a huge advocate of following your dreams,

living the life you want to live, and well, just going for it! I am a 'yes' girl for sure!

I love working with people like me, connecting with passionate entrepreneurs.

From headshots to flay lays, we will work together to create images to reflect your own unique and soulful brand.

I am a natural light photographer, armed with my camera, lens and a smile! So, no big scary equipment, not a studio light insight. 

I find forced posing very uncomfortable so, we go with the flow, follow the mood and relax into the shoot.

I seek out the light and the colour in your life, see the connections between you and let your story shine through.

I would love to meet you so get in touch to find out more
