One of the things I love most about traveling is getting a bit lost, finding sweet little neighborhoods and searching for the best coffee shop to sit back and watch people as they go through their daily routine. Tokyo had some of the most amazing districts that seemed so quiet despite there being temples, parks and several other historical landmarks every where you turn. The Taito district was one of my favorite places we stumbled upon. We had spent most of the afternoon walking thru Ueno Park (that blog post will be coming soon) and found our way here for coffee and to rest our feet.

This past February, I traveled to Washington to photograph a dear friends wedding at Woodhouse Wine Estates in Woodinville. It is always such an honor to document weddings, but even more special when it is a friend. I have known the groom, Mike, for many years, (in fact, you’ll spot my hubby as a groomsman) and watching him marry Rachel was so sweet. Rachel was such a carefree bride and radiated absolute joy the entire day. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Bailey, and thank you so very much for including me in your wedding day. xx

last week while cleaning out a closet in my office, I stumbled upon a blank canvas and and set of paints that had been locked away for nearly 8 years. While taking a break from my cleaning, I decided to break out the paints and create a little artwork. I had so much fun that I rushed out to the art store the next morning and picked up a set of watercolors and paper to try my hand at something new. I have no idea what I am doing but it just feels so relaxing to create something for no reason at all. Below is my first attempt at a watercolor.

last week I skipped out of my office a bit early to go on a long hike and to enjoy the beautiful spring weather. The rain we have recieved this past winter has left our hills a brilliant shade of green, and the fields of wildflowers are just stunning.  I wandered aimlessly for several hours, taking time to truly appreciate where we live, and of course  create some beautiful images.
