Hey there !
I am a Brisbane based Kindy/childcare photographer specialising in outdoor kindy photography, currently photographing 2500 children per year in my “mini session” style format !
I believe through the literally thousands of children that I have photographed over the last 10 years that I have an abundance of skill, knowledge and experience to teach when it comes to photographing children .
