I’m looking forward to a super busy shooting schedule in the first half of this year as I embark on my Tails of Brisbane project – I have around 100 dogs to photograph for this project in 2016! I always have time to fit in private sessions though so please do get in touch if you’d like to book your session and we’ll squeeze you in somewhere.
