Hi, I'm Jo, your Brisbane based brand & headshot photographer
My life's purpose took a while to materialise. I left school with vague plans of being a journalist, but instead studied interior architecture.
When I stumbled on photography in my 30's I was obsessed. With camera in hand, I crafted intentional stories that inspired and uplifted. Human behaviour had always fascinated me.
Over the last 10+ years I've captured the stories of many incredible humans; translating their joy and passion into marketable visual content. It's a pretty good job :-)
I've got your back
As a perfectionist and introverted business owner, I know how hard it is to step into the spotlight. Fear of judgement can have you procrastinating for years, while you stay 'busy' doing the work.
I totally get you'd rather wait until you're in the right frame of mind / 5 kilos lighter / less busy / super good looking etc. But, deep down you know, you're wasting precious time.
It's time to believe in yourself and trust in the process. You're ready to do this and I've got your back!
I'll guide you from start to finish
I genuinely understand "awkward" and have a magical way of relaxing even the most nervous of clients. Champagne.
Haha, just kidding! ( ... unless we need it for a prop ... and it's chilled ... and we are thirsty).
I'll guide you from start to finish so all you'll have to do is choose your Spotify playlist and laugh at my lame jokes.
I won't leave you hanging
You're not a professional model and I won't expect you to pose like one! I'll keep the shoot flowing with playful prompts and props, you won't even have time to think about your hands.
With a pro directing you through every creative scenario and a rock-solid run sheet, we'll slay your list of content requirements and have fun in the process!
For 10+ years I've been photographing portraits, so I truly understand how to manipulate lighting and angles to show you at your best.
Aesthetics aside, a portrait is only successful when you look effortlessly natural. We'll locate your sparkle of passion that breathes energy and life into your images!
