Mum with children around christmas tree by Jo Kemp Photography

"My mother was my first country the first place I ever lived" – Lands


I love to shoot families, newborns, kids and teens. Inspired by the no cheese kind of family photography where the ordinary is felt to be extraordinary and beauty is seen and found in the imperfections.

For this reason sessions often start in your home, often at breakfast time, on a weekend and I document your family and parenting story.

I love to capture the humour, play and natural interactions that make your family and kids unique. Important life events, a family holiday or just your kids hanging out with there closest friends are all moments that make precious images that in years to come will be part of the visual story that your child can pass on to there own children.

Sessions can be anything from 1 to 8 hours long or somewhere in between and be shot in a combination of your home and in a favourite family location


Packages start at 250€ and include:

Pre- shoot meet
Location scouting if necessary
Personal online gallery with high res edited files
Print and download service

"Your unbelievable talent strikes again Jo!
Thank you so much for capturing the wonderful magic of our crazy little family!
You have touched our life with not only your amazing photographs Jo but with the beautiful friendship we have forged.
Thank you for for your encouragement, professionalism, giggles and support"


Jen and Anna

" We  chose Jo for our first family shoot, in part, because of her 'no cheese' policy.

The experience was relaxed as she has the ability to nudge you into acting normally while she almost merges into the background as she clicks and positions herself to take the best shots. Jo easily connected with my shy son and created space when necessary, keeping things natural. We are extremely pleased with the results and look forward to working with Jo in the future!"
