About

Dedicated to girls being themselves, Frank & Bloom is a unique Surrey, Hampshire & Berkshire based photography experience, exclusively for girls aged 4-18.

Hello!  My name is Jo Temple, photographer and owner of Frank & Bloom. My purpose is to provide a relaxed, character driven photography service for girls of all types, enabling them to connect their personality with their visual identity by producing natural, unguarded and stunning images of who they truly are.

Whatever their character, the girls will recognise that their identity isn’t about surface beauty, it’s so much more. Their parents will feel the images align with their parenting and mirror their intent to raise strong, self-assured girls.

 
 

About Me

Photography has been a passion of mine since I was 10 and quickly became my source of artistic outlet. I am a member of the Guild of Professional Photographers and have won awards for my images.

In an abstract way, Frank & Bloom is a manifestation of my mum’s and gran’s guiding philosophies. If a girl can experience a sense of liberation by others celebrating and encouraging her to simply be herself, then I sincerely hope that Frank & Bloom can play some measurable part in that.

Locations

Although I am based in Woking, my photoshoots take place outside on location throughout Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire. Anywhere natural, authentic, beautiful – Overgrown fields, wild flowers, bluebells, lakes, lavender fields, stately homes, old buildings, a funky urban street, beautiful woodland, fields of gold, the beach or rustic farm buildings.

Photoshoots ideally take place around sunset and sunrise as this is when the best and most amazing light occurs.

 
 

The Name

The name Frank & Bloom means ‘You are the most captivating when you are just yourself’. I firmly believe that girls should feel free to express their personality, quirks, talents or interests.

If Frank & Bloom can play even a small part in encouraging self worth, contentment and confidence in girls then it has accomplished its purpose.

Why Frank & Bloom?

 
 

A Commitment To Excellence

I take on no more than 2 photoshoots a month, so I get to spend the time I need with each client. Every image you receive is hand edited, no batch editing here. Every image I edit for you must have the wow factor. I imagine every image, blown up, on your wall and it must have impact. I edit for quality and take as much time as it needs to get the very best result from each shot.

 
 

Ethos

“Sit pretty and smile” is not in my vocabulary. I aim to capture a girl’s essence; giving her a photograph that screams “This is me”.

With my passion for natural photography and dedicated to girls being themselves, Frank & Bloom candidly focuses on a girl’s personality in a relaxed environment where she can be herself.

 
 

An All Time Favourite Quote

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.” – Marianne Williamson
