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.

thursday || for fun


day 19
i did it because he is so sweet and i think everyone wants to see photos of him
i did it because it is fun, and i need to lighten up and have more fun
i did it because his photos takes over my page, so he might as well get credit
i did it because he is nine and i want a record of all the moments we have in one place
i did because his people love him so much
i did because, let's face it, he is awesome!
