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:: the ability to work for three hours in the garden pulling blackberries and ivy, cold iced tea, an afternoon gin and tonic  and toasting my #photoladyfriends on IG, a lovely afternoon walk with the Basil, a simple dinner with fresh strawberries from a local farm and just about perfect summer weather.
