A yearning for the past . . . (Location Session, Perry County, KY, Nostalgic Art)

Spread the love!

Nostalgia, a word meaning  “a yearning for the past”, often idealized in our memories . . .

8 track records,

Drive-In theaters ( I used to live beside one growing up. I’ve seen “Grease” as many times without sound as with)…Just as I finished looking at my Teen Beat magazine and kissing Luke Duke goodnight, I’d peer out my window just in time to see Rizzo clutching her books and mouthing the words, “there are worse things I could do, than go with a boy or two”…

Route 66 and the Open Road, “Where’s the Beef” ad campaigns, cartoons on Saturdays only, tin lunch boxes, Barbie and Ken…

Ahhh…and Jeep Grande Cherokee…


















“Gas costs how much?”































































My vision for the above photographs were definitely inspired by these beautiful children, the vintage Waggoneer and the beautiful homes of Alexa and Linda Cornett!  Thank you Danielle for trusting me with your babies and for letting me run with this idea!

What makes you feel nostalgic?  Comments are welcome!  Oh, and if anyone would like to schedule a BLAST FROM THE PAST session for August, September or October, call us today 606-436-1988 or email me:   An art-piece like no other is just waiting at the tip of my imagination, with your children as the inspiration!


Spread the love!

    Tammy Asher - I actually met the little lady from the “Where’s the beef?” commercials while I was in Disney World on a vacation during high school. Somewhere, I’ve got a pic of me….with my Jaclyn Smith feathered hair…and the little lady.
