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.

morning conversations, clouds breaking up to reveal blue sky, the warmth of the dog when he snuggles in beside me, heart shaped leaves, the sound of the river and how it pulls me in, kind bike riders who give us enough time to get over, left overs worth eating back to back and anticipation
