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.
