A year long photo project

yearoflexThis summer a few blogs published this nice movie which was posted on YouTube. Parents took (at least) one picture of their baby every day for the first year of his life, nearly always in the same position (basically lying on a white sheet). Then they made a movie out of it with a nice soundtrack. I think it’s brilliant!
You need some commitment sure, but it would be such a precious memory. It’s truly amazing to be able to see your baby’s growth in just over 2 minutes.
If you are pregnant now it may be something you could try to do. And personally I guess you could even cheat on a couple of days….

What a briljant idea!

Yes! It would also be cool to see a similar film from birth to 12 years old (with bigger intervals, obviously…)

WOW! An amazing idea…..I saw something similar where a father took just head shots of his two children once a week, every Friday from the day of their birth….and always against the same wall. He says he never missed a single week.

They are now almost teenagers.

He created a massive collage which is still obviously ongoing….

Was incredible!

That video made me cry! I know I’m a sensitive one, but that video really emphasizes how quickly they grow.
