Grand Rapids Newborn Photography| Sweet Savanna

Wikipedia:  a legacy is something that is handed down from one period of time to another period of time.

My girlfriend gave me with this red chair 2 years ago.  I had noticed it in her garage many times and caught myself coveting it time and again. I knew it had belonged to her grandmother so I didn’t dare ask her for it.   But one day she told me she loved it but didn’t have a place for it so she was ready to find a new home for it and I was delighted to take it off of her hands.   Months ago she told me her sister was expecting a baby girl and wondered if I still had the chair…. Are you following me?…. Last week here sister brought her new baby to my studio (completely unaware of the chair or it’s whereabouts) and I opened the door in my studio to reveal where we would take photos of Savanna.  It was a sweet moment when she recognized it. When I laid the baby on the chair  I envisioned a young lady sitting in it unsuspecting that her great granddaughter, whom she would not meet in this life,  would one day lay here. A spot that is only significant because she had been here first….A new life is here; a legacy is born.
