Jo Moore comes to Cottage Tails

A sample of photos Jo Moore captured when she came and visited
 more photos are on Cottage Tails Facebook page

















Jo is a local (rather famous) Wellington photographer that has a real love of animals - it shows through her Pet portraits  Here take a peek over on her pet page of her website

When Jo was a young girl she wanted to be a vet nurse or a zoologist but knew she couldn't of handled seeing mistreated animals. She chose instead the career of photography and all through her degree she focused her assignments on conservation and animal welfare.
Now a successful photographer she spends her time taking wedding , corporate, and family event portraits. BUT she also donates her time and skill  by taking photos for SPCA and HUHA .  Talk about someone paying it forward aye!
You will know which ones are Jo's photos as she has the above JM in the bottom corner of all her photos.

  1. Oh my, what a gift to have all of these wonderful pictues of you furbabies. Jo Moore has captured personality and momemts that will be preciously yours forever. I love them all but I have to pick out two favorites ... the first little scowl picture and the third of your Russian Gray with the shadow and light on his face ... these are superb. Nice post Leanne ... enjoyed them all.

    1. It is my favourite one too - captured Omar's perfectly - he needs the music jaws when I enter the cattery as he stalks me wanting to leap up on my shoulder. SMILE.

    1. Omar the lilac burmese I had got a tad excited with catnip and a cat feather wand hence the funny face - but I rather think it also capture Omar's character

  9. Jo is super talented and I love the first two photos. If miss Pops wasn't so shy I would love a portrait done of her. However, she runs away from everybody. It is only if a family member stays for a couple of days she will get friendly.

    Enjoy the lovely day.
