Thank you for stopping by!
My name is Maddy & I am the face behind Dear Lola Photography.
A Farmer's wife
A proud Mama to one little wild child & one cheeky pup
A lover of beautiful light, laughter & authentic moments
A Lifestyle Photographer, specialising in natural light Family photography
I am based near Launceston, Tasmania & travel both statewide & interstate by request
My style is not for everyone. I'm all for those in between moments & always prefer mood over technically correct. My work is honest & authentic in a "what you see is what you get" sort of way.
It's all about the REALNESS - I strive to show real life, real connections & real emotions in every image I produce. The most beautiful moments are the ones that are not posed, forced or planned.
So if you're after perfectly posed, everybody smiling, not a hair out of place photos, then I am not the photographer for you. We all know real life is a beautiful, chaotic mess & that's what I am here to capture. x
I am very minimalist about what I carry in my camera bag, One camera and one prime lens is all I use. I love to keep it simple, and consistent & I really love challenging myself creatively, which is the main reason I only shoot with one lens (also I don't really like changing lenses over all the time!) My equipment consists of a canon 6D full frame DSLR + Tamron SP 45mm f/1.8 prime lens, which I absolutely adore!!
THINGS THAT MAKE MY HEART FULL:
My little family (Josh, Billy & Harper), puppy kisses, coffee (lots of), simple country living, chocolate, road trips, gardening, mountain air, Italian food & golden hour! Eucalyptus, farmers markets, audio books, pictures that make you feel, maps & cosy winter sleep-ins.
If you feel a connection to my work and think my artistic approach is just what you need to tell your family's story, then let's chat x
