Sneak Peek: Waterfield Family {PORTRAITS OF LOVE}

I am so excited to present the first of (hopefully) many Portraits of Love session. What a fantastic family the Waterfields are! Faith is so bubbly and was in love with collecting leaves, Hudson is a handful (but I consider that to be a good thing in a little boy), and Rose is obviously the rock of the family, keeping things together at home while her husband defends our country overseas.

Rose, thank you so much for choosing me to do your family portaits. I cannot wait to meet Keith and do a complete family portrait when he is safely home.

Be sure to leave some love for the Waterfield Family (add a comment below) to help them win a free 8×10!

If you are interested in booking a session with Mandi McDougall Photography, e-mail me at If you are a friend of the Waterfield Family’s and mention that when you book, you receive a $20 print credit.

    What a beautiful family. Those pictures are fabulous. My favorite is the one with Rose and Faith sitting and Hudson standing. The only thing missing is a black and white dog 🙂
    I hope you get some pictures I would love to have one.

    I’m a friend of Rose’s and I just want to say. “Wow! You did a great job with the photos!” I wish you were here in the Rogue Valley. You did a great job of making the family look comfortable and natural.

    Really enjoy your work,

    I love these pictures. Both Rose and the kids looked relaxed and that is important when looking for a photographer; you want someone who does all the work and helps make the kids comfortable and responsive. Great job. They are beautiful photos.

    You all made me cry! I love my family and my friends so much! You are the best that anyone could ask for and you are why I am who I am as a mother and a friend and a wife to my husband while he is away! This was the greatest gift ever! Thank you Mandi for doing this for us and for showing Keith that even though he isn’t here we still love him and miss him and want him to see that things are still turning and are ok. You did a great great job!
