Macnab Photography | Blog

 

Hello and welcome to Macnab Photography's blog!  My name is Tori and I'm the artist behind the images of Macnab Photography.  I've had a passion for photography since I was a little girl.

I am located in The Dalles, Oregon and serve the Columbia River Gorge.  I specialize in children and families, and my interest lies in capturing moments, from the smile of a child to the love in a couple's eyes. 

Thank you for visiting my blog.  Hope you enjoy your visit!
