There are so many incredible people I’m fortunate enough to capture, and then there are those extra special people who are just so incredibly authentic and themselves, that sessions like this are so much fun. As a Yass Portrait Photographer, it’s always so amazing to come and visit this gorgeous town, filled with wonderful people, just like these two!

Loulou and Dale have a story that is unlike any I’ve ever heard before. If you’ve been following these images which have been posted on my Instagram, you’ll know how much I’ve been wanting to tell the details of their story, but I honestly believe that if they choose to share it, it is them who should be the ones to put the pen to paper.

My lifestyle sessions are all about being a companion to you and your family, no matter how big or small, no matter what sort of configuration! It’s not about having you pose in awkward places, at angles which aren’t you and aren’t flattering. I instead prefer to spend the time getting to know you and capturing what is really there. That means that if you’d rather go for a chilled out walk with your favourite four-legged friends together, I’m all up for that!

Loulou, Dale and I got up to exactly that! Out in Yass, Loulou (one of the amazing halves of Canberra’s blooming amazing Moxom and Whitney) invited me over to their place so that I could capture what Dale and Loulou love to do on a regular day; a gorgeous walk around Yass, followed by Gin and Tonics, and storytelling. Not only are these two souls filled with chemistry, but the humour and character they have is off the scale. If you want to get a good impression of what one of my ideal sessions looks like with people, this right here is it!

One of the most enjoyable parts of capturing images for me is taking time getting to know whom I’m working with. Being able to spend a couple of hours with Loulou and Dale was so much fun, and it reminded me of why I love to do what I do.

The following images are from our session, and every one demonstrates a little bit of something special in Loulou and Dale’s life, from Dale’s man cave to Trooper coming along for a walk with all us around Yass.

Thank you Loulou and Dale for sharing the love and warmth you have for each other!

I hope you enjoy these amazing images!
