Through the Camera's Eye

One of the joys of blogging have been meeting so many talented blog friends. 
Tracey Ayton is one of those talented ladies.
She sees life through the Camera's eye!

Tracey is an interior/gardens/lifestyle and food photographer, based out of Vancouver, BC, Canada.  Photography has been a passion of Tracey for 15 years, and in her own words,  "Having a job that is 99% fun is a gift and meeting people who are at the top of their game is so inspiring.
 They've excelled, doing what they love to do, and do it well.
 I always hope some of that will rub off on me."
  She lives with her husband and a big goofy dog named Griffon.

 Her photography skills are obvious. 

Delicate and pretty, she always seems to catch the perfect light.

The images below were featured in the latest issue of Belle Inspiration Magazine

She obviously has a thing for white. I love to see homes decorated in white, although it isn't a big part of my household with two teenage boys and two black cats.
