Camano Island


Spent a few days in Camano Island while visiting Washington State. It’s a beautiful little island right off the coast. This was taken during a break in the rain.


Tulips in Washington

Since I’m scheduling these photos ahead of time, I thought I’d look back on my last trip from when I was in Washington State. Sometimes I find it better to let the photos sit for a while before post processing them. It gives me new eyes on the images and I have a clearer head as to where I want them to go. I LOVE the deep colors in this one.

By the time you’re reading this I’ll already be in Paris! My second time visiting the city but I don’t remember much since the first time I was here was more than 10 years ago. I’m so excited to be exploring a new city and culture. Be sure to follow me on instagram. I’m sure I’ll be posting a lot of pics on there.

Severe Storms at the US Capitol

Man that was an intense storm last night! There were several times where I thought my camera was going to fly away.

But the whole time I was out I was thinking of my friend, Don. He passed yesterday. A great photographer but an even better person. I’m so grateful to have known him and to be mentored by him. I remember how he’d always call me “kiddo” and the last time I saw him he told me how proud of me he was. He was the type of person where you’d always be smiling when you were around him. I miss him already. This image is for Don.
