Hello. I’m Jo, a portrait and wedding photographer based in Surbiton who works across Surrey and south west London. The most important thing you need to know about me is that I love taking photos, making sure that you enjoy the experience and producing natural, beautiful images that you’ll treasure.
I launched Sweetheart Studio in 2010 and during that time have had the pleasure of photographing lots of different subjects ranging from newborns to families; weddings to cocktails. My background is in journalism and before Sweetheart Studio I worked on parenting titles including Prima Baby and PTA+ Magazine. As a mum, I know that in the blink of an eye your chubby little armful of cuddles turns into an iPhone wielding, selfie-taking teenager. Captured in a photo, those fleeting moments – a tiny foot, a dimpled cheek, a gappy-toothed grin or a little arm round your neck – will be something you’ll look back on and cherish. And the lovely thing about having a family portrait session is that you get some family photos with all of you in them instead of Mum or Dad being stuck behind the camera…
My photo shoots are designed to suit you so it’s up to you whether you choose to do them on location such as in a local park, at your home or elsewhere. But I also have a beautiful studio on the Surbiton/Kingston upon Thames border. This is perfect for newborn shoots, headshot sessions or studio shoots for kids and families as well as commercial photography.
If you would like to have a chat about your portrait session, please call me on 07711 087636. You are welcome to pop in and have a look at my studio, but please call first to make sure I’m there.
