PETA - DOG PAWRENT TO:

KNUCKLES & PEGGY

A black pug and a senior cream and black pug sitting in the grass on the farm.

I was lucky enough to win a free shoot with Jo on her farm for my two pugs.

The experience from beginning to end was so simple and wonderful. Jo's love for dogs, photography and her farm is clear in everything she does.

We had a brilliant afternoon on the farm getting some incredible shots of my girls and the end results were more than I could have imagined.

Making it mean even more, my oldest girl left us a few weeks after our photo session so to have such beautiful lasting photos and memories of her is something I will cherish forever (and Jo's kindness throughout was amazing).

Would definitely recommend Jo for anyone who has ever thought of getting photos of their furry family members.

"I had a fabulous photography session with Jo. She was so good with Max and he absolutely loved her.

It’s extra special being able to have photos of my boy in such an idyllic place with gorgeous lighting.

It was also just lovely being able to hang out on Jo’s beautiful property for a couple of hours watching my gorgeous boy having so much fun having his photos taken.
I would recommend Jo to anyone."

BLU AND BOB

Pawsitive Review by Robyn Fabiano for Bob and Blu

"Jo and I got together for two photo sessions and I can’t speak more highly of her skill as a pet photographer!

The photos are just fantastic of my two precious pals Bob and Blu. Jo took a lot of photos and I can’t honestly say I prefer one over the other...they are all great and very treasured as happy memories in our household - and always will."

"Awesome having my 2 greyhounds photographed by Jo. Jo showed much patience as one greyhound is timid and one had his nose into everything. A fun experience for all. I would recommend Jo to anyone wanting brilliant photos of much-loved companion pets."

She also does a lot of work helping Paws for Thought Rescue to raise much-needed funds through her beautiful photography. Jo is a lovely caring lady."

MILO

Red Pomeranian sitting on jetty with Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background

"Jo is an amazing and patient photographer. She took some beautiful photos of our fluffy son for a coffee table book to raise money for Paws For Thought rescue group.

Sadly our fluffy son crossed the rainbow bridge less than 6 months after the photos were taken. Thanks to Jo we now have these beautiful memories of him captured. Thank you."

GRACE

Sable Pomeranian Sitting on the steps outside the Great Hall at Sydney University, Australia

"The reason I chose Jo to photograph my dog was hearing about how she supports animal shelters and charities.

My dog "Grace" featured in the "Teeny Tiny Dogs" photographic book and upon seeing the photos for the first time, I shed a tear. What an amazing piece of art. The stories are engaging and heartwarming, and Jo's photos are magical. She really does have a gift."

"It was such a pleasure to work with Jo. She was so kind and patient with my dear old Medo, who at 16 is half-blind and almost deaf, but still happily pottering through life.

Ellie - DOG PAWRENT TO:

Artemis

Ellie and Artemis

"Jo Lyons is one of Australia’s best pet photographers. Beyond her exceptional skills and industry qualifications, the thing that sets Jo apart is her genuine connection with, and love for, animals.

I am the founder of an animal welfare charity that has been the recipient of Jo’s generosity. She has not only photographed our events but implemented fundraising initiatives in support. This altruism extends to many charities and local pounds in which her images have helped save the lives of many animals over many, many years.

You’d be hard pressed to find both a better photographer and human being."

Max, Mia and Mya

Max, Mia and Mya the Senior Samoyeds

"I had seen Jo’s charitable work on Facebook and thought she captured some amazing images. I looked up her website and from first contact knew I had made the right choice.

I wanted a special present for my husband, an artwork we could treasure forever and Jo was amazing with my 3 fur babies, they are getting on and have varying personality traits but they adored her especially her wonderful treats.

She was caring, thoughtful and very patient each visit and the final products were wonderful, she had captured their personalities perfectly.

I can’t thank Jo enough for all her hard work and I am so happy with the final artworks, I highly recommend Jo, you will not be disappointed."

Angelique - CAT PAWRENT TO:

Lennon

Lennon the ginger cat with birthday cake and baloon

"We had Jo come out to take some birthday shots of our kitten for his first birthday. Lennon was a stray who we fostered and fell head over heels for and decided to add to our family. He’s a very active and distracted kitten and he’s difficult to catch sitting still. Jo not only captured such brilliant photos, but handled Lennon in a compassionate and professional way. Given he can be a little... annoying... she was so patient with him and he warmed up to her so quickly.

Thank you Jo, we will cherish these photos for many years to come. Thank you for capturing Lennon in the light we see him in. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer for our youngest man and will be coming back in future for the rest of our furry, feathered and scaly family!"

KIRSTEN - DOG PAWRENT TO:

Pepper

Pepper the Schnauzer

"What a beautiful experience!

I have seen Jo's work on social media as she is a huge supporter of the rescue group, Paws for Thought, amongst others. I was the highest bidder in an auction to support PFT and it was worth every penny! Jo was organised and explained how the shoot would work, took time to get to know our pooch and offered some suggestions on the different shoots and venues we could go to. We agreed on a venue and Jo shared some details about it so I could get a feel for it and make sure I was comfy.

On the day I felt like Jo was Pepper's long lost Aunty! The love and care she showed to get the 'perfect' shot - even bringing along her scissors to remove long blades of grass!

Jo completely went above and beyond my expectations and captured our girl Pepper in the most beautiful way. It's obvious that Pepper has a love of life, her humans and running and Jo was able to capture these amazing images that we will treasure in years to come.

I cannot recommend Jo highly enough - a true dog lover and a beautiful person."

Tilly

Tilly at Gunnamatta Bay

"Our biggest concern before booking our shoot was that Tilly our Cavoodle may not behave enough to get some great shots, however Jo has a lot of patience and captured a great variety of shots for us.

Our favourite part of the experience was toward the end when Jo captured Tilly running around on the beach naturally.

Jo is very professional and captured some brilliant shots of Tilly"
