I believe that everything starts by paying attention. Life is imperfect and any magical light we can bring into our day is worthy of our gratitude. Laughter and love, joy and celebrations slip into our lives with ease but learning to cope with the deep pain life brings to us is also necessary. I do this best with my camera, chasing down light, zooming in and out and pairing it all with truth. 

I live in Western Washington with my husband of 40+ years, in the home where we raised our three sons. We share that home now with our sweet beagle named Baker.  

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Little glimpses of our lunch together the other day.  Moments captures, even though it was so dark inside the Rainer. We laughed and listened and shared French fries, and I came away full of gratitude and love. My oldest and my youngest.... cheers. I love you tons!

(I might have had a pumpkin pie martini!) 


It is pouring rain here this morning. We lost power a bit ago, but the wind has died down now and the power is back on. I can hear the rain pounding on our metal roof and the day is gloomy. I think fall is here now. 


have a good rest of your weekend,

cathy, xooox
