Amity & Alex | Bloomington Indiana Children’s Photographer
Using a Simple Prop to Tell the Story of Generations.
As a Bloomington Indiana children’s photographer, I find myself scanning the many antique malls for old wagons, getting out the sewing machine to make pendant flags, or going to ol’ faithful, Pinterest, to come up with ideas for photo shoots. After searching high and low for ideas to make my daughter’s and my niece’s photo shoot extra special, it struck me that it had been sitting in my kitchen all along.
Meet The Yellow Stool– easily comparable to the Billy Baroo, the My Precious, or the proverbial Red Ryder BB Gun! Growing up with only one yellow stool and six grandchildren, this single piece of furniture was the root cause of countless fights surrounding my grandmother’s kitchen table. Being the youngest (and the most pitied), I was usually crowned queen of The Yellow Stool since I actually needed the boost.
My grandfather and grandmother recently moved into a retirement community, and I inherited the famed Yellow Stool. As much as I wanted to keep it and the bragging rights all to myself, I decided to let the legacy live on through all of mine and my cousins’ combined eight children. True to tradition, Amity and Alex fought over the stool throughout this entire photo shoot. Amity won. After all, she is younger.
