Surrey Family Photography
FOR FAMILIES WHO LOVE THE OUTDOORS
You blink and they're another year older. Let me help you capture memories of your family today, that will melt your heart tomorrow
You want your family portraits 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, you and I will be a great fit!
We all felt instantly comfortable
and at ease with you, which meant
we were able to truly enjoy
the whole experience without any kind of pretense.
They are the best collective set of photographs I have ever seen, you can't get better than that!
Thank you Jo for our amazing pics. We love them all and we will be highly recommending you to all our friends.
If you've been searching for 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 10 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 seven 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.
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. Sometimes kids won't play along no matter what you do. In the unlikely event all hell does break loose, then we'll reschedule at no extra cost to you, so don't worry!
What if it rains?
I will keep an eye on the forecast from two days before your shoot. If we do 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?
In my experience, 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. That won't happen with me! I work in a way that enables people to forget about the camera. A lot of the best shots I capture, you may not even have noticed I took.
This is so Freya, she's always holding and touching our faces. I will treasure this picture forever

Before the shoot
After we've got you booked in and before your Family Photoshoot we will have a chat over the phone to discuss location, what to wear, and your family so I can plan your photoshoot. Behind the scenes I will be creating a mood board specifically for your family, ready for the day.
WHAT TO EXPECT
During the shoot
I will guide you all the way. It's a stress free family photoshoot, because you'll be working with a photographer who loves kids, and is relaxed whilst getting the job done. My aim is to create fun, relaxed and heartwarming images of you and your family, for you to treasure forever.
After the shoot
Two to three weeks after the shoot you will be sent a link to view your gallery, where you can choose which images you would like to purchase. Just digitals, framed images, canvases - it'll be up to you. I will guide you through and help you choose if you need me to. There is no hard selling here! I will leave you alone to decide and get back to me.
