One lazy day in 2009, I decided to embark on a photo-a-day-for-a-year challenge. I set myself a goal to upload a different photo every day - some are of my gorgeous clients, some are of my ever obliging family and friends.
Well, I reached the end of the challenge year, and while I didn't quite succeed at a photo-a-day, this blog became part of my weekly routine.
This Saturday 12 June, the new edition of the Albany Traveller Magazine will be released in The West Australian Newspaper. Here are some of the pics that will be featured in the mag... these first five were taken at the award-winning Cape Howe Cottages, with come of my favourite models Holly & Chris.

I am a tad excited about seeing my name in the by-line with Serena Kirby, who has written for magazines for years (and is currently working on a book i think...shhhh!). We covered three stories together... you can read two of them in the current edition of Scoop Magazine. The third is due out in the Mercedes Benz Magazine soon. Stay tuned!
I'm busting my chops to see the winter edition of Scoop Magazine hit the shelves - any day now! Myself & Denmark writer Serena Kirby have a couple of stories in this edition. One is all about our chocolate obsession! Here's a "taster"....
For as long as I can remember, I've been taking photos. I got my first camera - an instamatic - as a kid and was mesmerised by my first prints (of my pony, Prince). Back then, we'd drop the film off at the chemist in the neighbouring town 50 kms away in the south of Western Australia. My parents would take me to pick it up a week later. Oh, the anticipation!
Later at boarding school, I cut my teeth on an SLR and I spent time in the darkroom with the school photography club and collecting photos for the school magazine.
In my teens, I fell into an unofficial role of "documentary photographer" recording lifes of friends at uni and later, throughout our twenties. But while I continued to take pleasure in photography at social events and as I travelled the world, I'd never considered it as a career.
With the birth of our first child, I realised there's rarely a moment not worth photographing. I've been a "mumma-ratzi" prowling on my gorgeous kids & their friends for those magic moments all of their little lives. (You'll get to know some of them through this blog.).
Getting my first digital SLR camera was the catalyst to really letting my hair down. And the decision to follow a career path in this field, after 20 years in marketing, was a natural progression.
I passionately believe this is what I am meant to do.
