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.

the two of them came out to cut back my ferns
an all day job for me, just an hour or so for them
he helped me plant some broccoli 
and ate almost a whole bag of little peppers
he makes me laugh so
"what do you mean you got a new camera?" 
he asked just as i snapped this
