Emma ~ McCormick Park, Duvall


It’s been a year since I saw this beauty.  She and her mom braved the rain with me.  We were even lucky enough that the rain eased up and took a break.  Imagine that in the PNW.  An empty park surrounded us with wild dandelions, sticks, birds flying over head, and my pretty cool flamingo umbrella.

I got lost editing with the sound track to the movie the Greatest Showman.  The words of each song are so touching and magical.  I got lost in her moments of inquisitive imagination.  Capturing the two-year old toddler is everything you want…real, messy, and always moving.  These moments will never be enough.  The time goes so quick.  Try to bottle it up if you can.  My own daughter is now five and I have no idea how that happened so fast.  If I could time travel back for a day I would.  I guess that’s why I day-dream.

“I’m tryin’ to hold my breath
Let it stay this way
Can’t let this moment end
You set off a dream in me
Gettin’ louder now
Can you hear it echoing?
Take my hand
Will you share this with me?
‘Cause darling without you

All the shine of a thousand spotlights
All the stars we steal from the night sky
Will never be enough
Never be enough
Towers of gold are still too little
These hands could hold the world but it’ll
Never be enough” ~Lauren Allred
