Babies love to stand ON things and sit IN things, so I always try to bring along a chair or a crate for my littlest sessions. I asked mom and dad if they wanted me to get my crate from the car (before I lugged it up the mountain) and they started smiling and pulled out the most adorable child-sized rocking chair.
This rocking chair has been in dad’s family for generations, belong first to his great-great-great (wait… I lost track) grandparent. It’s been passed down through the years, and now traveled just a little further to Hatcher’s Pass to take part in Sebastian’s one year session.
This right here is what I love. Yes, I have chairs and crates and props available, but anytime we can switch out for a family heirloom or something that is significant and meaningful, let’s do it. This picture is 1000x more special because of that little red chair and the story behind it.
