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.

Cannon helping with breakfast
a call to come and hold the new born babies
five of them just a few hours old and 
two other mother's just waiting it out
sitting in the barn with her and all those little boys
laughter and questions and friendship
the sun coming out in the early evening
and a lovely slow walk with Basil around the pond
