I am always so impressed by parents who manage to document their child's milestones from in utero to first steps and through childhood with creative photographs. Sadly this is not me. I love the idea of these photos but I have to be honest, if it wasn't for my iPhone I would struggle to capture any big moments with Eloise. What can I say, I'm a convenience girl (but does this also make me more 'in the moment'?).
Still, I am blown away by the creativity of other parents and have a glimmer of hope that maybe some of this will rub off on me. I have always loved the idea of taking a photo of your kids on the first day of school. I know this idea is nothing new - pretty sure my own parents did it - but it is still such a sweet way to document how much children change with each passing year.
I love the ideas below, especially an annual birthday photo like this one:
