Sanctuary: A sacred place of refuge.
Behind the camera is my sanctuary. It's quiet and peaceful. It's just me and my subject, be it an animal, a flower, a scenic view, a person or random object. My goal is to capture the emotion I felt and hope you feel it too. Rather than explain it to you, sometimes it's best to let the picture do the talking.
I've lived in the Seattle area for nearly 15 years with my husband and biggest supporter, Christian, and our 4 rescued kids: The cats: Gracie, who somehow manages to be both the Queen AND the Princess in our house and Oscar, who, in his prime, earned the nickname "Meat" and is the best cuddler of them all. The dogs: Moki, the most loving, cute, loyal, smart and crazy pup (extra focus on the "crazy") and Marta, a former street dog from Taiwan who turned us into Foster Failures. She's a big goofball, my constant shadow and loves Fritos and Triscuits.
