It’s something you hear all the time from parents. “I wish I could stop time and keep my children young forever.” As parents, we long for the days when our children’s lives were simpler.
Parents must understand that their children will grow up and live their own lives. One Dutch father took an unusual approach to demonstrate his daughter’s development.
Frans Hofmeester, a Dutch filmmaker, had the brilliant idea of filming a picture of his daughter every week of her life, beginning when she was a baby and ending when she was 20 years old.
The results are nothing short of breathtaking. Seeing this young lady’s transformation over 20 years is truly beautiful from a young, crying infant to a fully grown woman.
As a unique way of preserving a simpler time, when his daughter was a baby, Frans Hofmeester definitely has a creative mindset. This project must have taken a ton of patience.
One of the most exciting parts is that from birth to a grown woman, you can see how the nuances of the girl’s face change and shift but still always resemble that tiny infant from the day she was born.
Parents have always struggled with their kids growing up too fast. Frans Hofmeester came up with a unique and beautiful way of reflecting on the past that will always bring good memories.
