Natural Beauty

On my first trip to Washington in 2008, I said to my boyfriend (whose family we were coming to visit), “This is the most beautiful state I’ve ever seen! Why did you ever leave??” Five years later and here I am, living in this gorgeous place, and the beauty of it never ceases to amaze me. I mean, really, do you guy have any idea how incredibly lucky we are to live in this state?? I never get tired of photographing the beauty around us.

    Coming from Florida – which is nothing but flat, swampy, and blah – the diversity of the landscape here is what continues to amaze me. I love that we can live in a desert – that definitely has its own beauty – and then drive two hours and be immersed in the verdant lushness of the Wenatchee forest.
