"I love everything about RealShoots. Charlotte has a relaxed way in engaging every dog she is photographing. To be able to watch sessions while they are happening and the steps she takes to get to the finished product is phenomenal! I have picked up many new ways of approaching different subjects. Thank you Charlotte!"
