A portrait!  What could be more simple and more complex, more obvious and more profound.  ~ Charles Baudelaire, 1859

Portrait photography is my greatest love, and I’m always excited when I’m asked to shoot an individual portrait.  No matter how well I know a person, I always find something new and interesting about them I didn’t quite see before, and strangers feel like friends.  Brian and I decided to explore Melbourne’s wonderful laneways, full of coffee smells, early risers looking for breakfast, fantastic street art and colour, the beginning of a bustling Saturday.

What better way to spend a morning in the city I adore?
