Shoot Along Challenge…Then + Now…..

So, last Wednesday, over at Giverslog, Amberlee and Carrie Butler had another  shoot along challenge…..then and now….recreating the same photo……

Well, that is an easy one for me…I am a bit of a fanatic about this!  I love to recreate the same photo every year!  We do it at Christmas, Halloween…all the time!  Seriously, I am addicted to doing this…I had a hard time deciding what photos to show for this post!  This is one of my favorite things to do with photography!

One of my favorite “then and now” photos is a photograph that I took of my oldest daughter when she was about 2 1/2 years old.  I loved this photo so much and played around with it in Photoshop…..then my husband surprised me by having it made into a poster.  When my son was the exact same age, I redid the photo…..and my husband again had it made into a poster.  I was so excited to redo the photo when my daughter was the same age…I literally counted down the days….but I no longer had the same hat and we didn’t live in the same house….so it looks slightly different.  But all three photos were taken when they were almost exactly the same age….2 years, 11 months and 25 days….

The photo montages hang in our living room…..we haven’t gotten River’s made into a poster yet…..some day soon….
