Natural Photographer

Jo combines the spontaneity of documentary photography with a small amount of direction to ensure the best light and flattering photos – nothing too staged and posed – all images have a natural and fresh feel.

Spontaneous Moments


Jo's success as a professional photographer is as much about her passion to capture the spontaneous moments, as it is about the ability to create images. Subtle guidance is key to natural and relaxed photography. Photographs can turn the tiniest moments in time into something remarkable.


Beauty is so often found in ordinary moments. A beautiful photograph tells a story and captures emotions and soul. Jo documents everyday life and with that she tells your story - capturing forever the exceptional beauty of family moments, people in love at weddings, a newborn’s first days, and creates memories that might otherwise be forgotten.

Whether you need a photographer for your

wedding, your family or your company’s
