{About Me}

Hope has written in fits and starts over the years but really began expressing herself in a new poetic form just this year in 2014.

Writing & Contemplative Photography are her main creative outlets.

Photography began as a creative outlet for her in 2011. She loves macro nature photography and telling stories with her images and words.

She believes everyone has a voice worthy to be heard and that the sacred is everywhere. She finds beauty poignantly expressed in nature and in words.

She tells you why she writes HERE.

She is a SAHM of 2 and has been married to her best friend for almost 10yrs.

You can find her photography at her new online home www.pursuingthebeauty.com (formerly www.hopewoodphotography.com). & https://facebook.com/hopewoodphotography (now called Pursuing the Beauty).

Her Writing is found here: https://pursuingthebeautywritings.wordpress.com/https://www.facebook.com/pursuingthebeautyblog

She writes there about her faith struggles, doubts, grief, etc. (not for the faint of heart as she gets down to the nitty gritty and why she found herself in a place where she had to pursue hard finding God outside of religion and church walls). 

Thank you for stopping by!
