About Me

Hello and Welcome!

I’m Bev and I live in Calgary, Alberta with my husband Dave and fur daughter Sophie, a beautiful golden retriever who our children joke has had more pictures taken of her than them. (Probably more true than funny if I’m honest)

I’m the fiercely proud Mother of two amazing children and I  recently acquired the title of Grandmother , a journey that far exceeded anything I ever could have imagined  . . . family means everything to me and it never escapes me for a second just how fortunate I am.

My soul companion - Sophie

Another thing I should tell you is that I’m extremely passionate about photography to the point my family jokes that they forget what I look like sometimes because there always seems to be a camera in front of my face.

I have to say though, it’s when I’m behind the lens of my camera that I’m in my element. Time stands still and I get completely absorbed in the beauty around me. It’s in these moments that I regain perspective and focus. (no pun intended!)

I’ve often said that I think everyone should carry a camera. When you look through that viewfinder you’re constantly looking for the beauty in life and you find yourself appreciating things you once took for granted.

Things like the  light and long reaching shadows . . .  things that magically transform all they touch and you begin to see the world open up before you in ways you never imagined. It’s those moments and more I want to share with you.

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing in my journey.


In Gratitude,

    1. Gathered Gratitude

      Well thank you so much for stopping by and for your lovely words! Your beautiful blog held a few gifts for me. I must admit to have been feeling lost with what direction I was going in but after reading your blog I’m encouraged and inspired to simply write from the heart. =}

      I may not have any followers but those if I ever do, will be people who “get it.” People who celebrate family, appreciate beauty and are grateful for the everyday gifts in life. What can be better than that! Thank you for giving me back my focus!
