“Sometimes you will never know the value of something until it becomes a memory.“

DR SEUSS

 Whether you are awaiting your baby, holding your newborn in your arms or have children that run around like wild ones, all of these moments are precious, beautiful, worthy of documenting and my soul aim is to ensure they are not forgotten.

Lifestyle documentary photography is my passion and I believe it gives the perfect blend of family portraits and joyful storytelling images at the end of it.

 

I want to see the real you, to capture your family's life, connections and emotions honestly and beautifully. 

" What I love about Jo's photos is that they are "real". They portray real everyday life. She captures the best smiles and hugs, and beautiful moments of connection between people."

Family shoots

Why do I love it so much?

Basically, I come out in hives at the thought of spending our time together whilst instructing you all to sit in a line and smile at me! I would much rather be chasing the kids under the kitchen table or up a tree, capturing cuddles and giggles on the bed or watch you all make a mess baking cupcakes.

 

Don't worry about the kids not behaving, they will be excited and with three of my own I know, like you, that you just have to ride with their energy! 

The joy of this style of photography is its all about real moments, not the sterile picture perfect ones.

Remember, these family photographs are not just for now, but, for the years to come. You will treasure them when they show you these long lost moments, for having captured all the little things that vanish from memory with time, for cementing all the memories that make up your unique family story.

 

"These photos are your own little pieces of life that say

'we were here!'"

"I want to see your connections together, the laughter and smiles when your kids make you giggle... because that's what makes YOUR perfect picture. So, throw all your smiles, laughter and play at me. 

This is YOUR story."

I create a relaxed environment and work with natural light in your home or on location, armed with my camera, lens and a smile!

In a place you are all comfortable, perhaps hanging out at home or garden, visiting one your favourite places or walking in the woods. 

Playing with your small people and having a cuppa and a chat with you is all part of my job to ensure you are at ease.

 

We go with the flow, follow the mood and relax into the shoot.

I am great at disappearing into the background so you forget I am there as well!

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

Together, we will create photos to treasure, photos you will pass on to your children, that tell your beautiful story, and say 'this is us!'

If you are still here with me reading, then I think we may kindred spirits and I can't wait to meet you!

 

Investment

Your legacy is worth every penny...

I truly believe in the value of capturing your family story, not just for you now but, more importantly for your future self and your children to treasure as they grow up too. After all, this is your legacy and it deserves to be honoured!

I also believe these photos should hang proudly on your walls, but I know how hard it can be to get around to doing it... so I have an upgrade solution for you!

But first... we need to make sure we are the right fit for each other,

so let's chat!

I want to get to know you and your family, what makes you tick, what gets you smiling, what do you love to do together and what do you want to capture in your photos.

I believe the best way to do this is to speak to each other... no form filling or questionnaire, just a good old fashioned chat!
