你好! Call me Alyse! 

I am a creative, scientist, photographer, and editor based in Seattle. I'm a city dweller and have lived in Guangzhou, New York, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, but consider the Pacific Northwest home. 

I love learning new things, capturing people in photographs, cooking, warm gatherings with friends, freshly brewed coffee, and heavy rain. I'm allergic to dogs, but will still give them lots of pets! 

Welcome to Lumière & Lens. 

This blog (est. 2016) is a personal narrative and lifestyle blog, a space to document lifestyle, notions, and creative endeavors. I share photography, thoughts, endeavors, and the occasional review on products I love. This space has changed a lot over time, to coincide with transitions in my life. 

I'm often inspired by the work of my peers (blogroll) and things around me. I hope you enjoy perusing this blog as much as I love creating it!
