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 Basil. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.

“The only reason why we ask other people how their weekend was is so we can tell them about our own weekend.” 
~ Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters 

A weekend full of goodness::
lots of yard work
and that good tired feeling at the end of the day
graduation, a full heart for sure
and a few tears
a walk along the water 
and dogs taking in the sun
a drink on the deck in the early evening 
and a fire going 

hope your weekend was good,
