Rock 'N' Rolla's {Cass+James}

Every so often I like to shoot something just because. 

It keeps the creative inside me occupied. 

It gets the pulse pumping...

And most of all - it makes me HAPPY!

Driving up Dalrymple Highway one arvo in January, I was stopped at the lights & started looking around (as you do). 

To my left was the Warrina Cinema Complex.  That was nothing new, it's always there.  What caught my eye though, was a fabulous colourful sign on the building beside it announcing what appeared to be a retro 60's style cafe - Lulu's Cafe 66.  On further inspection (in the form of taste testing the menu whilst checking out the walls inside) I decided I really wanted to do a Sweethearts Session in here.  AND, I really wanted to do it soon....and actually start shooting more of the stuff that I was visualizing. 

So instead of waiting for the right couple to come along & suggest we do a themed shoot there, I hunted down my ideal couple for the images I wanted.  What made them ideal?  They were not professional models that I hired - no.  They are however, an amazing couple that were referred to me by their local dance club president.

After that first little visit to Lulu's earlier this year, I contacted the Townsville Twin Cities Rock 'n' Roll Dance Club & asked if they could send me an energetic, fun loving couple who would be interested in doing a Sweethearts Session with me. They sent me the most awesome couple I could have ever wished for.  I organised for a bit of hair & make-up to be provided by the crazy talented Nikki Noodle MUA, & when they arrived, my couple - who are very into their dancing fun arrived, fully dressed -  & in their own wardrobe - HOW COOL ARE THEIR OUTFITS !?!

Even though I'd never met them in person before, these two fantastic - SUPER cool - people absolutely smashed their session. 

The reason?  Because they are crazy-in-love with each other & they enjoy having fun! 

I've known these guys for no time, yet AFTER our session, when we sat down & got to know each other a bit more, I felt like I'd be friends forever.

In our getting to know each other stage, I also found that Cass has a whole bunch of other cool stuff she does.  For one, she exercises on Silks. 

For another, she is also a Pin Up Doll model in her own right - yep, look here to check out the adorable Miss Bella Jean

These two are such a loving couple, have two amazingly hip kids (how could they have any other type),

enjoy Rock 'n' Roll dancing & dressing up & getting into the "swing" of it all.

I am so happy to finally be blogging this sessions particulars, James & Cass - you guys ROCKED! (too much?)
