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.

I picked a bouquet. . .

I picked a bouquet. . .

Our sweet little patch of grape hyacinths were here when we bought our home some 30+ years ago.  

The boys would bring small bouquets in for me, hiding them behind their backs, all smiles and so proud of themselves.  Today I picked my own and remembered those sweet little hands as they handed me the gift of love. 

Dear Winter,

Dear Winter,

Spring tease!
