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.

short ferry lines, arriving in triplets and pairs and one by one until there were nine of us filling the house, hugs and laughter, understanding and total acceptance, sunset walks with sun-rays, salt water and shell collecting, warm soup and mixology, more laughter and friendships growing, going to bed knowing they will all be here when i wake up
