A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

Let them be kids: the beach at twilight

There has been a lot of chatter on the internet lately of how we ought to allow children to be themselves in photographs. No forced poses, or sitting still for long periods of time, or fake smiles. At the end of almost every photo shoot of young children their parents practically end up apologizing for their child's behavior and I just smile. Now why do I smile, aside from retreating home to peace and quiet......... because I know what a gold mine it ends up being to have a record of the elbowing, the grumpy looks and the utter distain for anything less than their true selves. Kids and their outward expressions of honesty are the best. Happy or sad, they hold nothing back and it is a good lesson we all ought to remember.
