Shooting the Milky Way

Shooting the Milky Way

I had a few friends ask me about my Milky Way photo from Salt Point State Park and how I was able to compose and shoot my photo, so I figured I would  pass along my “field notes” from my trip.

A Weekend in Seattle

A Weekend in Seattle

My husband has been on my case lately and rightfully so. I’ve been sitting here with a list of destinations, the must-do’s for them all and I haven’t shared them yet! With that said, here is a quick trip guide for Seattle and all the awesome places we were able to check out (and recommend) over a long weekend in the rainy city... This was my first time in Seattle.

It’s a charming city for being so gloomy and the people clearly take pride in their craft beers, artisanal delicacies and their beloved Seahawks.
