Lynette Johnson shares her personal story and explores how pursuing a passion can effect change. Lynette speaks about how passion and personal experience led to her nonprofit and how photography creates a legacy in the face of tragedy and loss.

Lynette Johnson is a Seattle based photographer, wife, mother of two and the founder of the non-profit Soulumination. A Northwest native, Lynette has taken a passion for photographing people and followed it through a successful career and into the world of legacy photography. Through Soulumination and with the talent of 60 local photographers, families facing devastating loss have the opportunity to receive photo services free of charge. Lynette's diagnosis of lymphoma and its minefield of treatments and emotional issues has added a depth of compassion and understanding leading to new resolve and bolder leadership skills.
