Nostalgia Shoots by Lorraine Dawkins

Many people have asked me why I choose to do themes in my pics.... my answer is: because I can lol But really, I enjoy telling stories and making people smile. Nostalgia means "sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations." My personal nostalgia would be the 90's since I was born in 91. Every time I watch am old 90s show or hear 90s music, I mentally take a trip back to those times and I smile. My desire is that people would feel the same way:) You may not be able to personally associate with every decade, but someone will.... my mother said she wanted to cry when she saw my 70s Nostalgia shoot...so I guess my mission was accomplished!
