Having roots in Alaska, Colorado and now calling the beautiful Pacific Northwest home, has given me a love of the outdoors and a sense of adventure.

Photography for me is about capturing moments of unexpected beauty, telling a story and making the ordinary somehow magical. It is also about patience, persistence and sometimes being in the right place at the right time.

It also allows us to capture chance encounters that grab us, provoke and often entertain. Photos may make us laugh or cry, may inspire and and take our breath away. Photographs hold life still, if only for a moment and often speak to the quiet places of our hearts.

I do have a few special favorites but the best one may be the one that I take tomorrow. I hope you enjoy this photo journey.
