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

Hello! My name is Jo Temple, photographer and owner of Frank & Bloom and I provide a relaxed photography experience in Esher for girls of all types aged 4-18. My aim is to enable 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.

A photography experience in Esher takes place outside on location. Anywhere natural, authentic, beautiful – Overgrown fields, wild flowers, bluebells, lakes, lavender fields, stately homes, old buildings, a funky urban street, graffiti skate parks, beautiful woodland, fields of gold, the beach or rustic farm buildings.

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


A Commitment To Excellence

I take on no more than 2 photoshoot experiences 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.

Why Frank & Bloom?


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.

Whatever a girl’s disposition, Frank & Bloom’s objective is to enable her to feel comfortable enough in front of the camera to bloom.



“Sit pretty and smile” is not my approach as 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.


Photography Experience

I aim to create timeless images that you will be proud to display in your home, giving girls a visual reminder everyday of who they are and why they are loved. An initial questionnaire and pre-session consultation to discuss your girl’s personality underpins the focus and location of a photography experience in Esher (or locations further afield). During the photoshoot I will combine gently posed shots along with capturing spontaneous, unguarded moments as they unfold.
