Shane Michael Cafferty

Shane:  abstract thinker, honest, funny, smart, athletic, confident, & willfull…still waters run deep…this is my son, Shane.  His senior portrait session was not the most fun for either of us, but we managed to get this beautiful image of him for the high school yearbook.  Of course, he had to give me a hard time!  I’m a photographer.  Since the day he was born, I have been documenting as much of his life as I possible can, so he gets a little impatient with me. O.K. ~ a lot impatient with me.  Understandable.  Frustrating.  Reality.

Shane Michael is a complicated person with many layers to his personality ~ he is an amazing baseball player & has been playing ball since he was 4 years old, LOVES sports, but here in the neighborhood, he reigns as champion Yu-Gi-Oh card player & Pokemon expert.  Go figure.  He is a gifted as an artist, a loyal friend, & love, love, loves comedy.  I can go on and on talking about my first born son, but I won’t do that here…

I will, however, share these wonderful lyrics to a song by Carol King from the CD “For Our Children” that we listened to daily when Shane was a baby…from my heart… I love you to the moon & back, my Shane, & I wish you everything good & true & joyful. xo

“Although you see the world different than me

Sometimes I can touch upon the wonders that you see

All the new colors and pictures you’ve designed

Oh yes, sweet darling

So glad you are a child of mine

You don’t need direction, you know which way to go

And I don’t want to hold you back, I just want to watch you grow

You’re the one who taught me you don’t have to look behind

Oh yes, sweet darling

So glad you are a child of mine

Nobody’s gonna kill your dreams

Or tell you how to live your life

There’ll always be people to make it hard for a while

But you’ll change their heads when they see you smile

The times you were born in may not have been the best

But you can make the times to come better than the rest

I know you will be honest if you can’t always be kind

Oh yes, sweet darling

So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine,

Oh yes, sweet darling

So glad you are a child of mine….”
