You want your family photographs to be natural...

Nothing too staged, nothing too posed.


Everyone standing in a row and smiling is not your thing, because you're not that kind of family.


You love to dress up every now and then but you're also a bare feet in the grass kind of bunch.


Playing in puddles, riding bikes, climbing trees, picking up insects and making mud pies is what life's all about. You'll clean up later.

Cuddles, tickles, kisses, belly laughs and expression. This is who you all are and THIS is what you want to remember.  

You want to bring those amazing outdoor Surrey scenes, along with the little faces you love into your home and onto your walls.

If that sounds like you and your family, then you and I will be a great fit!

They are the best collective set of photographs I have ever seen, you can't get better than that!

We felt instantly comfortable

and at ease with you, which meant we were able to truly enjoy the whole experience without any kind of pretense.

What if my kids play up?

Then that would make you a normal family! and like you, I've experienced it all!  If they have a melt down, we'll deal with it and move on. It honestly doesn't phase me at all. I have 9 nieces and nephews and an 11 year old son. Honestly though, because of the way I 


What if it rains?

I will keep an eye on the forecast two days before your shoot. If we need to reschedule due to heavy rain or strong winds, you will have plenty of notice.

I do ask you to be flexible on the day of your shoot as sometimes we may have to adjust the time we had planned, to avoid a shower or two!

What if I'm camera shy?

People only feel camera shy if they've been plopped in front of a camera and asked to pose or smile, with no direction and nothing to focus on.  I work in a way that enables people to forget about the camera and a lot of the best captured shots, you may not even have noticed were taken. 


Your family photographer...

Hello! If you've been searching for a Surrey family photography with a photographer who creates a space within which you won't feel awkward, where you will be given direction every step of the way, and will hand over images filled with emotion, fun and connection, you've come to the right place.


My name is Jo Temple and I live in Woking, Surrey with my fiancé and our 11 year old son. My family and I love going on outdoor adventures all around Surrey. 


I’m a tomboy who loves pretty things!, which perfectly sums up what you can expect out of a photography session with me. We will have fun whilst creating beautiful images. 


​I picked up my first film camera at the age of ten and have spent the last eight years professionally photographing families. I have won several photography awards and my work has been published in many magazines.


P.S. I LOVE DOGS so feel free to bring your furry friend to the shoot.


Before the shoot

Once you're booked in and before your family photoshoot we will have a chat over the phone to discuss location, what to wear, and I'll ask a few questions about your family to help me plan your photoshoot. Behind the scenes I will be creating a mood board specifically for your family, ready for the day.


During the shoot

I have many tricks up my sleeve to get those natural family shots I know you'll love. Will you feel a awkward at first? possibly, because a lot of people do. But only for the first 10 minutes or so, then you'll get into the swing of it. I will guide you every step of the way and sometimes, you won't even know I've taken a shot.   

After the shoot

Two to three weeks after the shoot you will be sent a link to view your slideshow, after which you can choose a collection to purchase. All the collections include digital images and you will have access to a beautiful online store where you can download your digitals and choose frames, canvases, framed wall galleries and prints.
