  • About Charlotte Reeves

    Charlotte Reeves is an on-location natural light pet photographer specialising in dogs, based in sunny Brisbane, Australia. Blessed by gorgeous weather and stunning natural photo locations, Charlotte loves discovering and telling her client’s stories through beautiful, natural and fun images just begging to be displayed in the home and shared with friends and family. Photography sessions are low pressure and specially designed to bring out the pet’s personality and unique character.

    When not hanging out with her Great Dane Luna, Charlotte loves to read, explore new places and destinations through travel, immerse herself in nature and the countryside, and get physical outdoors with horse riding, dirt biking and bushwalking. A self-confessed techno geek, she also thrives on finding time to disconnect from technology and spend time with her amazing partner, friends and family.
