Nostalgia Photography bio picture

McDougall Family

A casual life-style session in your back yard with lots of bare feet – I’m in. I am a huge fan of these low key sessions where families can be themselves in their own elements and I get to capture life, just as it happens.

When I look back on old photographs of me as a child or my parents and grandparents younger years, the aspects that captivate me are the memories surrounding the places and characteristics of the environments that I loved or the things/places that my family loved when I was just a thought. These are the things that create nostalgia. So when a family invites me into their home to capture their real life, I’m incredibly honored and imagine someday these little ones will look back on these images with fond memories about that tree swing they had in their front yard or the memories they shared as a family in that house when the baby was just a baby or how beautifully mom always wore her pearls (timelessly, I might add). These are the things that make me love my job.

The rolls! The hair! Could that baby be any cuter?! I think not. I love these moments you captured with all three. The family must be thrilled with them! VERY nicely done!
