“The greatest legacy we can leave our children
are happy memories”

Hey Mumma!

You deserve beautiful photos with your family.

Family photos should be

a fun, loved-up adventure!


I've had my fair share of photography shoots and I know what it's like to be on the other side of the camera!

Now I only choose photographers lhat are fun, relaxed and experienced with bringing 'flow' to the shoot.

I want the same for you.

I've spent 10+ years perfecting the tricks that deliver a fun and relaxed family shoot experience.

Games, music, intentional play and appropriate choice of location for your family all combine to set up the most beautiful photo opportunities.

'Love Notes' from JKP families

“Joanna really goes above and beyond with planning the perfect shoot — from meeting me initially and hearing what we would like to suggesting the best location for what we were after for our maternity shoot with our two dogs.

She made us feel at ease and also included our dogs in such a natural way.

We are so happy with our photos, it captured more than we could hope for. I love the way she just captures 'natural'.”

Hi, I'm Jo!

I spend my time documenting [extra]ordinary stories of love, connection and celebration for Brisbane families, just like you.

I'm a Mumma too and I have experienced the bittersweet feeling of milestones coming and going. In fact, I spent most of last year pining over the loss of my 'babies' who have now blossomed into teenage 'monsters'. ;-)

So, please believe me when I say —

Cherish E V E R Y . M O M E N T with your babies.

You can't rewind time. All you can do is make the most of every day, and document those memories for later.
