Jill Dolby is a professional photographer based in Amaroo, Australian Capital Territory
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 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 and the Jo for Joshua.
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.
I am fully immunised and insured.
I first picked up a camera in the 1980s while still at school. I decided that I wasnt very creative and moving into University I focused more on my academic pursuits. In the early 2000s I had an RSI injury which made me re-evaulate how I spent my time. In my period off work I took up quilting and discovered a love of colour and creating. My son was born in 2006 and as a result of his birth I bought my first DSLR having been used a point and shoot prior to this.
I rediscovered my love of photography in 2009 when my daughter was born, I found myself getting more serious about my photography and taking some workshops with visiting photographers. In 2011 I commenced a Diploma of Photography which I graduated from in 2012.
My focus on maternity and newborn portraiture grew as I took more and more photography courses. I love the new-ness associated with a baby, I love the smell, the tiny fingers and toes and the noises they may when they sleep. I treat each baby I photograph as if they were my own. I ensure I am up to date on the latest baby safety when it comes to posing your little ones and would never put a baby in a position where I felt they were in danger. View More...

Beautiful photos, great experience! Jill is just so lovely and went above and beyond for us! THANK YOU
Karyn & Sio,
We would like to thank Jill from Lojo Photography for capturing our maternity and newborn pictures beautifully. We love all the pictures and had nothing but great experiences in dealing with Jill. You made us feel comfortable whilst being professional and well prepared. We cannot thank you enough!! We would definitely be in touch to do another session!
Jill was our photographer for a maternity photo shoot in September 2015, booked as a surprise for my husband for Father’s Day. From the outset, Jill was very easy to work with – responding quickly to my emails and providing lots of details on the various options available (dates, packages and locations). On the day, we had so much fun taking the photos with Jill. We chose a studio setting (the set-up and lighting were very professional) and Jill came prepared with a number of different outfits for me to wear to show off my “baby bump”. Not being very confident in front of the camera, Jill made both my husband and I feel very relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire session. I really appreciated how quickly Jill provided us with our photos (even sending through an initial sample that same day!) and I enjoyed the process of selecting the final images in-person with Jill. We couldn’t be happier with the quality of both the digital images and beautiful mounted prints, and now that our little one is here we are so glad to have them as treasured family memories. Working with Jill was an absolute pleasure and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as a photographer to family and friends.
