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.

is this the face of the dog that ripped
a whole box of Kleenex up 
when he was left alone in the car today?

yes! he has never done anything like that before 
on a better note, he did pose for me all afternoon
while i practiced spot metering. . . 
but still! 
Cannon is here for a sleepover 
so i can take him to the dentist in the morning
i kinda love this grandma stuff
