Just a little about me

and the team.

Hi my name is Jo Charlton and I am lucky enough to belong to 2 beautiful cocker spaniels. Bells is my oldest spaniel and she has been my best friend and inspiration for many years. People always say there’s that one dog (or horse) that is your dog of a lifetime, that is Bells for me, she is so in tune with me – she is my soul dog.

In September of 2018, Basil joined the family and along with the chaos he leaves in his wake, (he’s not very aware of what’s in his way, a bull in a china shop comes to mind) he brings so much character and laughter. He has even given Bells a new lease of life, even though she pretends she doesn’t like him secretly she loves him and would be lost without him as we all would.

All animals have a personality and a character that only we as their owners and friends truly get to see. We all have a unique bond with our best friend and my goal is to bring that out in every photo so that you have a lasting and fond memory of our favourite ‘people’.​

The closest bond we have is with our faithful dog or trustworthy horse, these relationships deserve to be captured at their finest.

“Our photoshoot was so much fun and so relaxed it felt more like a walk with a friend!

Our photographs taken by Johanna are stunning and capture the essence of my relationship between my dog and I effortlessly! We now have our own pieces of art on our walls that we treasure.”

Thank you so much for the whole experience! I did wonder what you would be able to get with my three as they often look a bit miserable with posed shots, but it was so relaxed and the dogs all seemed to enjoy themselves…a bit too much in Kepler’s case…. We’re delighted with the results – you have definitely captured their individual characters.

“I have used Jo twice now, each time Jo has always built a rapport with Dollie and she has been able to capture some beautiful photos.

Jo has this amazing gift to be able to bond with an animal as I found out when I took Dollie to be photographed. If you would like a brilliant photographer who captures the photos you love in the possible way; then I definitely recommend Jo 100% and now would not let anyone else photograph Dollie.”
