Hertfordshire Family Photographer

hello, I’m Jo

And I believe that stories are everywhere. Let me tell yours.

I’m a professional family photographer, people watcher, moment catcher, memory collector and happy times curator. I believe that the very best photos aren’t about how you look. They’re about how they make you feel.

Home is lovely Hitchin in Hertfordshire. I’m mummy to a funny, independent, growing-too-fast big-little person and I know too well how important family photos are – for now and for the future.

I don’t believe in scripts or poses. I’m not going to force you and your brood into awkward, unnatural huddles and demand you say cheese whilst peering self-consciously into my camera – after all, who wants photos of fake you?

I want you to look back on your family photos in years to come and remember not just the hairstyles, the fashions and how very little your little people were – but how it felt to be a team muddling along together, how it felt to be loved and to love each other – cuddles, grumps and all.

It’s my job to create honest family images that get to the very heart of who you are. Images that give you a warm and fuzzy feeling every time you look at them. Images that make you want to call your family and friends and say, ‘remember when…?’ and tell them how much you love them.

If, like me, you believe that the best photos aren’t about how you look, they’re about how they make you feel, you’re in the right place.

Newborn family photos – at home in Hitchin

Newborn family photos – at home in Hitchin

The images from this family photoshoot in Hitchin sum up why I love my documentary family lifestyle photoshoots. Nothing forced, or posed or unnatural - just a little family being themselves in the comfirt of their own home.  I shot this gallery on a cloudy Saturday...
