About Me | Canberra Newborn Photography

Who am I?

My name is Jill Dolby and I am the owner of LoJo Photography.  I opened LoJo Photography, Canberra Newborn Photography, in 2011 and have been capturing memories for my clients ever since.  I received my Diploma of Photography in February 2012 and have also undertaken certificate courses in Wedding Photography and Perfect Portraiture.

I am married to Graham and have two children, Joshua and Charlotte. LoJo Photography is named for my children – the “Lo” comes from Lotte which is my nickname for my daughter.


I specialise in maternity and newborn photography because they are the genres that I love.  That being said, I adore being able to take images for my clients on an ongoing basis to capture their families as they grow and change.

My Studio

My studio is a room in my home.  When you come to my studio for your newborn portraits you will sit at my dining table or, if you need it, feel free to have a lie down and rest on the lounge.  It is relaxed.  You will often find me in comfortable clothing and bare feet.  I find that, especially photographing newborns, I need to be able to move quickly, quietly and efficiently and I dress to be able to do this.

Studio Setup

Other Studio work

Where I require a larger studio space to undertake maternity or family portraiture I hire this from a local photographer.  They use the same lighting equipment I do but their studio allows me greater space to work with larger groups.

Natural Light

This type of session is held outdoors in venue of your choosing.  I work to make the most of the natural light available and the surrounds to create beautiful images for you to treasure and share with your family and friends.  These types of sessions also allow your children to be themselves – run around, have fun – they also allow me to capture your family at its most natural.
