Stories in Seven – July – Seattle Documentary Family Photography

Stories in Seven is a blog circle made up of documentary family photographers who have committed to telling a story in 7 images on the 7th of each month. This is the story of a backpack hike.

I clearly remember hiking and exploring nature with my dad. He’d point things out to us constantly: bugs, different plants, animal tracks. I take on that role now with Bennett and I enjoy every minute. Today we took him out to test his new backpack carrier on a short hike at Discovery Park. It was so much fun to watch him looking around and taking in everything. “Tee, tee!” (Tree.) We showed him a butterfly. He found a stick and a leaf. He fell down multiple times and his time walking by himself was short (cute little scuffed knee…), but he seemed to love being in the backpack so close to his daddy almost as much as exploring on his own. I look forward to many more adventures in the great outdoors with my little family and I’ll cherish these images of one of Bennett’s very first hikes.
