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.

i was up early to get into the garden
before it got too hot
he went to get a crown
and came home with wine
a gift from his dentist
we ran some errands
and he fixed the hose when we got home
we had dinner on the deck
afterwards there was a way overdue
walk around the pond
where the light was delicious
