"Asking The Cannon Cowgirl to attend our 75th anniversary Rodeo at Tumbarumba 2022 was a no brainer. I had seen her photos she had taken at other rodeos and there was no better photographer to have attend our big event.
We wanted photos we could look back on in another 75 years and remember the moments and reflect on our event. Shaye captured everything from the street parade to the rodeo. She captured the crowd enjoying the entertainment and all the bucking stock to showcase our contractors. Going through the album she gave us we see familiar faces from our committee while working hard and photos of our very own Tumbarumba Bucking Horses. Two things which make our rodeo possible. Shaye was exceptionally easy to deal with, happy to be involved and shared our edited album back to us within the week. I've since asked Shaye for images to be sent through and the odd question here and there and she's always been more than happy to help. We look forward to having Shaye back at our rodeo over the years to capture the action!
Love your work Shaye, thanks! "

"I cannot recommend Shaye highly enough!Not only did she brave the elements on the only day summer decided to have a monsoon, but she managed to capture my whole heart and soul through her camera in just 1 hour.Everything I hold in my heart for me horses and animals that I cannot seem to articulate justly with words, was translated so perfectly through Shaye's photos.I look back on these photos daily, and have them hanging on my wall, and I fall more and more in love with them every time I see them.I lost my horse of 20 years unexpectedly just recently. He was my absolute soulmate.To look back on these photos, I will forever be indebted to Shaye for immortalising him in the most perfect way.She delivered everything beyond anything I could have hoped for. Such an incredibly talented photographer who I will absolutely be getting back for future photoshoots!I cannot thank you enough Shaye! 🤍"

“We were gifted a voucher for a family photoshoot with Shaye and she was amazing to deal with from the get go! Super friendly and professional at the same time. I had a very tired 6 month old but she worked her magic with the camera and the photos exceeded my expectations. We are super happy and grateful we get to treasure these photos forever. “

"Shaye made the whole process very easy and made me feel comfortable with having to get in front of the camera (something I would not normally like doing!). Her patience and ideas whilst working with my horses and dogs was amazing. The turn around time from shoot to receiving my photos was very quick and the editing was also top notch. I love the end result and will treasure these beautiful photos for years to come. I could not recommend Shaye highly enough."

"Shaye captured our family perfectly, she was professional and fun. The photo shoot was comfortable and free flowing, I was so excited to see the end result as I love Shaye’s style and they did not disappoint! We were stoked with the beautiful memories captured that day we can now enjoy forever and the quality of the work. I can highly recommend The Canon Cowgirl"
