Christmas with your fur-friends

WHAT better way to capture the 2018 Christmas season than capturing a photo with your fur-friends?

CQ Pet Rescue is giving locals the chance to take festive photos with their pets this weekend.

Photo sessions will be held over two afternoons at the Botanic Gardens from 3.30-5.30pm on November 17 and 18.

Families are encouraged to dress up but are required to bring their own costumes and Christmas decorations.

CQ Pet Rescue volunteer Danielle Fisher said for many families yearly Christmas photos were a tradition.

"Why not start a new tradition with professional Christmas photos that include your fur kids too,” she said.

"Plus, funds raised assist CQPR in re-homing both cats and dogs from an unthinkable future.”

Each session costs $30, and includes a 5x7 print. For $45, families will also receive a Facebook sized image to share online and the full-size image digital image.

Photo sessions will run for 10 minutes. Only 26 spots are available so bookings are essential, with cash payment on the day. For reservations email Danielle at mollyand and provide your name, the number of people and number of animals (eg one cat, one dog).
