2008 is coming to an end, and what a year it has been for me!!
I thought I'd celebrate it with a photo montage of my work.
Here are my favorite ( because of many reasons, perhaps being the 'first" , or the time i conquered a certain lighting condition, or even just a great session) two photos from each month of 2008
These are In dated order from January to december ( two per month)
First time "finding the light " getting skin correctly exposed and still having lovely light in the eyes.
first ( of 36) maternity shoots! Thank you Tracey you were Blooming gorgeous!!!
First "sleepy" newborn!
First try at setting a scene outdoors and getting the light right

A lot of my firsts seemd to stem from taming our Brisbane light!! The bane a photographers life, shooting in full sun !!
Invited out a photographic mentor Andrea Joki, this is where my work REALLY started to take on a new level, she taught me SO much, I am forever grateful for her time and her company
