Hi, I’m Jo! I was born and raised in the UK and moved to Rye, New York in the summer of 2005. My passion for photography began at a young age and really started to develop when I received my first DSLR camera around the time my second child was born in 2000. As a parent I know life can be complicated and moves incredibly fast. Children grow up in the blink of an eye and that’s why I particularly love to photograph families, finding a way to slow things down and capture memories that last a lifetime. My approach to family and portrait sessions is simple, warm and relaxed. My goal is to create a fun setting and capture natural, ‘real’ moments that reflect your family in an authentic, joyful way.
I am a proud mom of a college sophomore daughter and a high school senior son. I love music, live concerts, cats, spending time with family and friends, relaxing with a glass of Prosecco, candles, warm weather, sunrises, sunsets and my camera!
As well as natural light portrait and family photography, I love to capture scenery, candid moments and images of everyday life. There are so many opportunities to learn more about photography and I enjoy exploring and experimenting with new techniques. I love the artistic side of editing my work to create unique, customized imagery and can work with you on commissions if there’s a particular scene you love.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have.
