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.

their excitement was contagious
even at 4:30 am 
the dogs have looked for them all day
but are settling in
she texted tonight with photos of baby turtles
and a mama tortoise
they could turn around right now
and the vacation would be perfect 
24 more hours and we pick Jordan up
