♥ ‘Time flies… but memories last forever’ ♥
Hello, I’m Jo
A devoted mama, with a lifelong love of horses…my photography brings together all my passions! Offering highly specialist studio photography for mums-to-be and tiny newborns and babies, alongside my creative country brand for equestrians and rural businesses.
Having my baby girl changed my life, I love capturing her childhood and preserving our family’s precious memories. She’s the reason I started this little business – to enable me to work child-friendly hours around her; she’s growing up so fast, and I really don’t want to miss a second! And knowing this, to be able to capture and preserve moments and memories for you & your family at my home studio is a privilege and passion for me. ♥
Since becoming a Mum, and realising how quickly it all changes, I wish I could go back and revisit all those amazing milestones and moments of my child’s life.
Photos allow us all to press ‘pause’ for just a little while, and embrace those memories… whether it’s those fleeting tiny baby days or those precious last months with your old horse… something I know only too well.
“Sometimes, you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.’ ~ Dr Seuss
Involved with horses all my life, I love and understand equines, allowing me to take photos that capture their unique personality and the bond they share with you. My lovely mare Shan was a part of my life for more than 25 years, and inspired my Forget-me-not project. Our new sweet little gypsy pony, Red, is turning into a rising dressage star for my daughter, and I love supporting their journey.
My country imagery equestrian brand includes the wider rural community and local businesses, ranging from sole traders, handmade craft and country products, designer wellies, to baby massage and pilates instructors. Capturing imagery to showcase their brands, and providing training for product photography.
I love my free time; spent with my daughter & husband, pony rides & walks in the hills, wine in the sunshine & campfires on the beach, summer days spent with family and friends and endless cups of tea on a winter afternoon!
If you would like to know more about a photoshoot with me, please get in touch, I’m always happy to chat and answer any questions you may have.
♥ ‘We have used Amberlight twice now and both times Jo has been phenomenal. She is so understanding of babies and really takes into consideration their needs. Our photos from both shoots are absolutely outstanding! We love Amberlight and will be using Jo again in the future.’ ~ Vicki, Jason, Lucy & Molly ♥
