Wanderlust Grace- By Tacoma Photographer – One Thousand Words Photography


Follow your soul….it knows the way.

To say Grace is a force would be an understatement. She is a force of nature; A beautiful whirlwind of passion and energy. I met her for the first time on a warm evening at local coffee shop to discuss her idea for a photography session. As she sipped her drink, her story unfolded:  A Canadian born daughter of a proud Scotsman, she spends her days caring for others  and planning her next adventures.  Her most epic adventure was meeting  the love of her life while on vacation in Hawaii. She ended up marring him and moved to the states.  She is a woman of depth and symbolism has great meaning to her. Wanderlust, her Grand – daughters , a vintage VW bus and her adorable Doodle were all things she wanted to incorporate in telling her story through photographs. Oh, and Sparkles…lots of sparkles!



Blessed are the gypsies, The Makers of music. The artists, writers, dreamers of dreams. Wanderers, vagabonds, Children and Misfits: For they teach us to see the world through beautiful eyes.





Not all who wander are lost.




This was a dream session.: laughing, margaritas and a new friend!

She dances to the songs in her head,

Speaks with the rhythm of her heart

and loves from the depths of her soul
