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.

"The sun was as flirty as Scarlett O'Hara with the Tarleton twins, breaking through the clouds in spectacular bursts that seemed like personal favors and then retreating for hours, days, and making us all ache for just a glimpse."

I headed out yesterday with an old friend to take some photos. We lost touch for years and years and now have reconnected and discovered we both love photography. We talked cameras and post editing and wine and our guys (who use to work together way back in the day),  It was so fun! 

We wandered along the Snoqualmie River and then went and had lunch. It is kind of exciting to think I might have a new/old photo friend!
