Recreating Family Photos

I came across this picture quite a few months ago....

                                                                                                       And thought it was such a great idea I had to find more. Since then I've been collecting them - and there are lots to find.

The secret to making a great Now/Then Family Photo Recreation is to find the "Then" photo that is the silliest, weirdest, or easiest pose for a child - but a pose that is hard or near impossible for an adult to recreate - and then surrender your dignity and recreate it.

The inhibitions and imagination of a child seems sweet and natural - but recreated - it's just plain funny.

Thanks to the many who posted!

Generational? Bride 1 is mum 2?

It's all in the expression!

It's a bigger bath - but nice work!

Commitment! Loving your work.

I feel sorry for blondie on the end! 

Ohhhh - he's so cute! Still!

Still a favourite - and mum's still saying, no, you can't have a cookie.

She always knew it was a bad idea.

It's all in the shirt.

Trend setting as a youngster with the big glasses.

Simple - effective - silly.

This is how you recreate a photo!

Poor dad!


Quite a few young/old dog motifs - always nice.

We need bigger shoes!

Brotherly love?

Perfect original to recreate - silliness works.

Wow - you both grew.

Love the Disney recreation - now add the next one in another 15 years.

This is called going all the way.



The best recreation yet!

How did she get up there?

Holy crap - that little guy's been working out.

You idiot! - but loving your work.

Ummm - I really hope that's a small door.

The first so innocent - the second... all grown up.


Before it was the shirt - now definitely the pants.

Again the pants make this.

Loving the baby fat.

This book was so intriguing I hardly put it down. Wonderfully written it does not linger on any 
one event nor does it speed through scenes making it a poor read. The characters were well 
thought out and the inner turmoils they all face are far from dull.

 Great read.

A story filled with with love, hate, violence, peace and so much more. 538 pages of wondering what will happen 
next. A FULL story from start to finish. Thanks to the author for sharing a great work with the readers.

 Couldn't put it down...
For this to have been a free book, it was wonderful. The author keeps you on the edge of your seat. I couldn't 
put this down. I think this would make a great movie!

Perfectly written with great detail it was thought provoking and asked the fundemental question of would you 
stick up for what you believed was right even if you would be killed for doing so.

This book is AWESOME! it keeps you wanting to read the entire time. It tells of 2 worlds, and both are 
extremely unique. One of the best books I've ever read!


  1. The very first photo (the wedding one) is me! The first photo was my mom as a bride in 1978 with her parents, and then we recreated it in 2011 at my own wedding. :)

    1. So sorry I missed your comment for so long - but what a wonderful thing to have - the two photos. I hope you continue the tradition! Thanks for putting it out on the net.
