Last weekend I had the honor of exploring with some pretty rad people. People that seem to mesh together and push each other on a personal level, as much as a creative level. They formed a unit that defined the word camaraderie– while still fully welcoming newcomers, such as myself. The crew is known as the Lost Family (Instagram / Facebook – definitely follow those, they’re inspiring).
With a mantra of :
“We’re a community driven collective of adventurers looking to squash routine and enjoy as much of this world as possible.”
They succeed tenfold. They are stoked to have likeminded adventurers explore with them; if you have a camera– even better.
The base of Lost Family also operate a parkour gym in Missoula, MT– known as Unparalleled Movement.
I was invited to tag along for their #MTsunriseseries – which essentially requires you to wake up a little after 4am to make sure that you can snag some liquid caffeine and hit the road to arrive at a breathtaking location just in time for the sun to break the mountain ridges.
This series, and their adventures in general, unite wanderlusting folk from around the PNW and beyond– not secluded to Montana alone.
The following photos are a collection that I captured on this particular adventure. While I don’t typically shoot portraits, this group pushed me out of my comfort zone and graciously posed for me (some unknowingly) while I captured some new favorite shots.
So, before I completely turn into a 14-year-old girl and keep gushing..
Here’s to the Lost Family and learning the valuable life lesson of the difference between Pans and Cans.
