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.

gratitudes. . . 
waking to the spring peepers
a long morning talk with a close friend
working in the garden, planting kale and more herbs
noticing tiny, lacy carrot tops, just barely out of the soil
an extra long afternoon walk with the dog
catching up while she cut my hair
and a new purse from TJ Max
