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.

Do we live in a photo obsessed society?

If you have ever juggled multiple electronic devices or had someone take a photograph of you taking a photograph, it gives you pause to think how all this documenting can get in the way of enjoying life.  We live in a society where people take photographs of everything from eating breakfast to going to the grocery store. Between my iphone and my point and shoot I always have at least two cameras on me. When I decide to bring along my SLR the total spikes to three.

Oftentimes when we go on walks I leave my cameras at home. Inevitably we will come across a baby seal on the beach or a spectacular sunset and I regret not having a camera to capture it. How about you....

When is all this documenting too much? How do you personally find balance between taking photographs for memories and being present in the moment to make memories?
