Jo creates an amazing experience throughout the entire process.
She knows her stuff, she took the time to meet Oakley, learn about him, his personality and the things he enjoys doing and perfectly captured them in all her images!
The artwork Jo creates is absolutely breathtaking. I was over the moon with how it turned out!

Everything I do is born from holistic roots and the deepest respect for all living things. During each photo session, I connect with your dog as the unique individual they are, embracing their true essence. With open-mindedness, honesty, and genuine enjoyment, I capture moments that hold profound meaning for dog lovers like you and I.

With a wealth of experience shooting in all conditions and all kinds of animal companions, too. I’m especially drawn to the outdoors – combining natural light and background texture to enrich each pawtrait.

The ultimate outcome is stunning Australian-made wall art, exquisite print collections, and fine art albums that pay homage to the unwavering love your dog has for you. These pieces will adorn your home, serving as constant reminders of the bond you share.

Let's create an unforgettable experience that celebrates the unconditional love your dog brings into your life.

Our farm experience photo shoot with Jo was amazing. She worked well with my dog Tina getting some absolutely amazing shots that show off her personality and attitude. Most surprising was her ability to get photos of myself that I actually like and am happy to display. Jo was friendly approachable and more than happy to work with us to find a package that worked for our budget. The photos are all amazing and the artisan box is of the highest quality.

Leash Removal Before and After

If you are concerned your dog can't be off leash for their portraits, no problem! I have the skills to set up the photographs so the leash can be edited in the editing process.



Have your dog photographed in their truest spirit, so you can cherish that moment through fine art, always.
