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.

Clark Family | Salmon Creek, Washington https://www.maybelinewild.com/blog/2019/12/clarkfamily 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"

Boys of FALL | Camas, Washington https://www.maybelinewild.com/blog/2019/11/boys-of-fall 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

#hankaaronisone | Hockinson, Washington https://www.maybelinewild.com/blog/2019/3/-hankaaronisone You're gonna be so stubborn
You get that from your mother
I already see it now, you weren't built for backing down
And boy, there'll be a small town nights
And you'll fall for her sky-blue eyes
And when she's in your hands
You'll think you're a man and not a boy
She'll make you lose your mind, boy
She'll be every reason why

You're gonna drive and kiss
And throw a punch
And grow up way too fast
You're gonna drop the ball
Hit the wall
And break some hearts like glass
I know you will, 'cause you're a part of me
And a part of you will always be my boy

It's 3am and I'd do anything to get you back to sleep
And that face will be the same one in the rear-view
The day I watch you leave

One of my cousin I was closest to growing up - boy do we have a lot of amazing memories. We dreamt of these days all grown up with when we get married and have little ones of our own. We even played countless games of MASH to figure out who our husbands' would be and the name of our kids, etc. Those were the days. A lot as changed since those days but our shared love for fall is still going strong! I loved celebrating your first birthday Hank! Even though it was an 80 degree day in October in the PNW - we had so much fun. I would like to add for the record my chili did win SECOND PLACE in the chili cook off.

364 of 365 https://www.maybelinewild.com/blog/2017/2/lastdayof2016 364 out of 365; crazy how we made it another year. Lots of weddings, loss of loved ones, engagements, lots of learning, tears, fear, loss of pets, just one crazy ride! So, we decided to spend the last day outside on an adventure. 

 

"I believe ambition is not a dirty word, it's believing in yourself and your abilities. 

IMAGINE THIS: what would happen if we were all brave enough to believe in our own ability to be a little more ambitious. 

I THINK THE WORLD WOULD CHANGE..."

 

 

 

If you want 2017 to be your year;

Don't sit on the couch and wait for it. Go out. Make a change. 

Smile more. Be excited. Do knew things. Unfollow negative people on social media. 

Go to bed early. Wake up early. Be fierce. Don't gossip. 

SHOW MORE GRATITUDE. 

Do things that challenge you. Make time for creativity. 

buy less, choose well. Give out too many compliments. 

learn from others. Spend time with loved ones.

take pictures. Take your pets with you. 

Just love; even yourself. 

xO - Shaunah

Valentine's day | National Organ donor day https://www.maybelinewild.com/blog/2017/2/feb14 As some may know (if you know me pretty well) you'd know that one day I'll need another organ so Valentines day means more to me than just a day of love, roses, chocolates etc; It's also National Donor day. 

It's a day that reminds us that we can save lives. Maybe even the life of a loved one or a perfect stranger. By being registered as an organ donor - going to donate plasma or blood you could be saving someone life. Some one who is desperate to live just one day normally.  Remember that when you're complaining about how you didn't get the perfect Valentine's day -  there's people out there fighting for their lives  ; most likely silently. 

 

My dad surprised me with some beautiful red roses for Valentine's Day. I think I'm one of the lucky ones who's dad often surprised me with something little every Valentine's day growing up. This year I decided to play around with the lighting. Which I have yet to master, however it's also fun to try to learn a new skill. 

 

 

Hope everyone MADE the day great or at the very last made someone else's day.. 

xO - Shaunah May

if it wags.. https://www.maybelinewild.com/blog/2016/12/ifitwags Like much of the young adults of the USA I'm obsessed with Pinterest. Often times I get way ahead of myself and think I can tackle a few of the projects with ease. Quickly realizing, that there's no way these people make this as easily as they're stating. Immediately, jumping to the conclusion that they're lying and this had to be store bought.

 

 

Until, I tried a project more a my skill level Now my confidence is BOOMING.. 

I come from a family of animal lovers, so one Christmas I decide to make some treat holders from an idea that was found on Pinterest.

Tayler + Joel | Engagement | LongView, Washington https://www.maybelinewild.com/blog/2016/5/tayler-joel Grandma and grandpa painted a picture of 65 years

And one little house

More than a memory

More than saying I do

Kiss you goodnight's and I love you's

 

Me and you baby, walk in the footsteps

Build our own family

One day at a time

Ten little toes, a painted pink room

Our beautiful baby looks just like you

 

And we'll build this love from the ground up

Now 'til forever it's all of me, all of you

Just take my hand

And I'll be the man your dad hoped that I'd be

 

And we'll build this love from the ground up

For worse or for better

And I will be all you need

Beside you I'll stand through the good and the bad

We'll give all that we have

And we'll build this love from the ground up

 

This life will go by

In the blink of an eye

But I wouldn't wanna spend it without you by my side

The clouds are gonna roll

The earth's gonna shake

But I'll be your shelter through the wind and the rain

 

And we'll build this love from the ground up

Now 'til forever it's all of me, all of you

Just take my hand

And I'll be the man your dad hoped that I'd be

 

And we'll build this love from the ground up

For worse or for better

And I will be all you need

Beside you I'll stand through the good and the bad

We'll give all that we have

And we'll build this love from the ground up

 

Someday we'll wake up

With thousands of pictures

65 years in this little house

I won't trade for nothing, the life that we built

I'll kiss you goodnight and say I love you still

 

And we'll build this love from the ground up

For worse or for better

And I will be all you need

Beside you I'll stand through the good and the bad

We'll give all that we have

And we'll build this love from the ground up

This shoot was pretty special to me; my baby cousin Joel (Joe for short) is getting married. I was so honored that he asked me to do this pictures. Thank you for believe in me. It's so crazy to think about the fact that we are even old enough to get married. Since, it just seems like yesterday I was carrying you around although, it seemed like you weight as much as I did. You'll always be my middle seat partner for our many long road trips. A mama's boy. "turn the nintendo OFF" So passionate about the military even as a child. Our family. Sports. I'm so blessed so have many, many of my childhood memories most which involve you and our family. I know anything you do you put your heart an soul into and you will succeed. Never forget that. And listen up Tay ;) I wish you both the most amazing life possible. I'm here for you both anytime you need anything during the good, bad, ugly, and amazing.  I cannot wait to grow even older with you guys and watching your love grow! Best wishes...

Barn Door Entertainment | Interior spaces | Orchards, Washington https://www.maybelinewild.com/blog/2015/5/barn-door-entertainment-interior-spaces The first thing I ever fell in love with was Interior Architecture. From as far back as I can remember my brain was Fascinated with it.

I use to daydream in Elementary school of how I would rearrange my room when I got home - with piece of paper I would sketch out how I want to move things around.  The funny thing was with it's being the early #90s ; I had a sweet waterbed which essentially is an Interior designers nightmare. I was limited to just moving my desk and dresser and all the detail on top of it. You have no idea how many time Is would move those back and fourth. I think I was my mothers' worst nightmare. 

That was just the beginning of my love affair with design. I love looked in JCPenny catalogs, pottery barn - anything that showed you what a space could look like. As a child I never knew that you could actually do that for a living. Even take it a step further and become an Interior Designer. So, that's exactly what I did. My love for looking at Interior spaces hasn't faded one bit. You don't even want know how many hours I spend looking at the newest Pottery Barn catalog when it comes in the mail. Or how many of them I cannot part with. 

 

All that being said - My mom has a passion for building her own furniture.

 

 

I'm not completely in love with these picture. I prefer a lot of natural night. And the Pacific Northwest wasn't cooperating that day.
