A customer recently contacted us to say they lost everything in the Queensland’s floods including their portraits we did 12 months earlier. Fortunately our studio keeps a permant archive of images ordered so we were able to redo there damage portraits. Here is their story.
Rebecca say’s, “My husband Shane returned from Afghanistan in June 2009 from a very stressful 6 month deployment, and was sent on immediate stress leave for 4/5 weeks to have some time out and unwind, as well as reconnect with our family. On advice from medical specialists, we decided to take 12 months leave as part of his recovery program and travel around Australia together. This trip has been in planning and a dream for years, and this was just the excuse we needed to go ahead.
The week before Christmas, we returned our Defence service residence to DHA and placed all our belongings into storage at Storage Choice, in Mining Street, Bundamba. We then went to Sydney with our family for Christmas and prepare our caravan to travel around Australia.
Unfortunately three weeks later the flood in Ipswich destroyed everything we owned at our storage facility in Bundamba. We drove up to Brisbane as soon as the roads were open to see what we could recover, and unfortunately 95% of our belongings had been destroyed. We were lucky enough to have a group of friends assist us in the recovery process, and we have been able to save some clothing, crockery, plastic outdoor furniture, and some of our 5yr olds toys.
