capturing joy

Ok, let’s talk a little about magic. Magic doesn’t happen with a formula, or by following the instructions on the tin. Magic isn’t painting by numbers – one size does not fit all. Magic comes from getting to know each other – you and me – so that I can capture your relationships and tell your story in an authentic way. Magic comes from choosing a location as unique as you are, and making the experience of being photographed as memorable as the finished portraits. Magic only happens if you can relax and enjoy the entire process. Real magic is looking at an image a decade from now and grinning at your memories from that moment in time, realising that you and I captured joy.

about me

MEET JODI

Hi, I’m Jodi. Nice to meet you.

I'm a portrait photographer based in SE London. I studied Fine Art in my home town of Johannesburg before moving to the UK over a decade ago. I planned to stay a year, and I loved the UK so much that I never left.

I'm the girl who hates small talk but loves to chat about what really matters most to you. My family and a happy home are two of the most important things to me. I certainly don't have the loudest voice in the room, but I don't believe you need that to be heard. 

A creative at heart, I've tried my hand at so many art forms that I've lost count. Photography originally appealled to me because it was creative and technical all rolled into one neat package. I love the process of taking photos, and how the end result becomes so much more than light and tones captured in a light-tight box. It fascinates me that photography can translate a feeling into a tangible form with a single click.

YOU NEED TO KNOW

questions

I am based in South East London, UK. My photo sessions are shot all over Greater London, Surrey and Kent. I do also venture further afield upon request.
Nope, I also work with commercial clients. I photograph head shots for business owners, as well as interiors and product images. For individual head shots, please contact me and I can pop a brochure over to you. For other commercial projects, get in touch and we can chat through the details.
I work exclusively on location using natural light as much as possible. This produces a natural look and feel, enabling me to work much more quickly than if I was settings up artificial lights. I do occasionally hire natural light studio spaces if required.
Lifestyle family sessions are priced from £75. Commercial portraits for one person are priced from £175. Get in touch for a brochure with full details. Something else in mind? Let's chat through the details and I can put together a custom quote.
