I hope you dance | Parker, Colorado | Family

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances, but they're worth takin'
Lovin' might be a mistake, but it's worth makin'
Don't let some Hellbent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin' out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance

This was such a bittersweet shoot for me. My brother and I were lucking enough to spend a lot of time with our cousins's. Summers in California and School year in Washington. We have so many amazing memories with all our cousins' - Ones that we laugh about often. and make fun of each others misfortunes with countless inside jokes. Ones' I still find myself laughing about to this day. We "were" the lucky ones. It's so crazy where life takes you. Definitely down some paths you never expected. If I had it my way ALL my family would live in the same area so we can be in each other's lives and watch all the little ones' grow up. Like we (kinda did) as kids. Those memories are priceless to me. I say all that to say - I was so excited to finally shoot one of my favorite cousins kids! It makes me sad to think of all the growing years I've missed. 

To Ashleigh, I've already told you what an amazing job you're doing with the kids but it can't hurt to tell you again. They're so sweet, so respectful, I love seeing their personalities - even know Dilly doesn't think he has one haha. The love they have for one other is so special and I hope it alway stays that way. You're hard work has paid off. I'm still dream and praying that one day I will be lucky enough to be a mom too, and I'll need to call you for some tips! Love you Ashika to Starlet and back. Gran and your dad would be so proud of you. 

I hope I capture this day with all the little details. Which happen to be my favorite thing. I know it's just one day but it's one of a million. 

And remember Ash "Let them be little" 

 

Love you Wildly

Shaunah May

 

SIde note. This was one of the hardest shoots I've ever shot because here in Colorado they are enduring a huge wild fire. So, the colors and lighting changed within seconds. Just a side note.

Amazing grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and Portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.

Amazing Grace - 1772

 

Rest in Peace " Papa Bobby"

When I feel that chill, smell that fresh cut grass
I'm back in my helmet, cleats, and shoulder pads
Standing in the huddle, listening to the call
Fans going crazy for the boys of fall

They didn't let just anybody in that club
Took every ounce of heart and sweat and blood
To get to wear those game-day jerseys down the hall
The kings of the school, man, we're the boys of fall

Well it's turn to face the stars and stripes
It's fighting back them butterflies
It's call it in the air, alright
Yes sir, we want the ball
And it's knocking heads and talking trash
It's slinging mud and dirt and grass
It's I got your number, I got your back
When your back's against the wall
You mess with one man, you got us all

 

The boys of fall

 

I'm so incredibly proud of you Drakey. From watching you as an infant and trying to balance school, work and looking after you - it was hard but I'm so happy to have those moments with you! Watching football games with you, talking all kinds of smack, so our highly emotional talks, to family fights around the Easter table, to dying laughing at all of our inside jokes about your mom hahaha. WG<WG<WG<WG<BG<GREG hahahahaha. You are amazing! I love that you stay true to your heart yet you're not afraid to say when you messed up. I'll always have your back just like I did from the very beginning. I miss you guys so much. Congrats 2020!! 

 

Love you wild , Shaunah

Of all the fire mountains which like beacons,

once blazed along the Pacific Coast,

Mount Rainier is the noblest.

— John Muir

 

 

So, many special moments in my life tied to this wild volcano.

Thank you Jes + Soy + Cedar
