Hi I'm Jo! I am a specialist dog and animal photographer with over 13 years of experience. My goal is to create captivating pawtraits that showcase your dog's unique personality and the special bond you share. I am dedicated to celebrating the unique connection and unconditional love that exists between humans and their four-legged kids.

I invite you to join me in recognising the vital role that dogs play in our lives.

Our exclusive countryside studio in Wootton NSW offers a serene setting where you and your dog can relax and enjoy a few hours of quality time together. Our state-of-the-art studio is set amidst a natural landscape and provides Australia's most extraordinary dog photography experience.

Let me capture your precious moments with your dog, and transform them into beautiful artwork that will enhance your home and bring joy to your heart, so your dog will always be remembered.

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.

As a fellow dog lover, I understand the incredible fulfilment that comes from opening our hearts and homes to dogs, particularly those in need of a forever family from shelters. I believe in the transformative power of dogs and the joy they bring to our lives.

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.
