Dad Takes Picture of Son Every Day
I liked the presence of a little mohawk haircut early on. I like that the position of the face within the photo is almost always the same. It gave the impression to me that the head was floating while only the background changed from being in a house, car seat to random blurs. Towards the end when he is wearing glasses the little boy reminded me of that young actor in the Jerry McGuire movie.
I love that! As you get a new baby, looking to see what part of Mom & what part of Dad to make him his own. I babysat for my bosses grandson as a baby till school started, holding him as an infant on my shoulder as I counted money, added up sales from a cash roll of paper & reroll it & individual paper tickets,putting a certain amount of money in each drawer.
Then he sat on my lap drawing, fortunate to have a Г shape desk, w/me working at the top, a little longer & him on my left leg drawing on the left part of the desk. Took him to the bank w/me occasionally, as no car seat in mine or company car(Max round trip 2 miles on mostly 25mph streets). When young, he was identical to his Mom’s(Bosses daughter/boss) pictures age 5 & below, but as he was older & now, looks more like his Dad. REASON I THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA CONTINUED FARTHER, maybe not everyday, but everyday for maybe the 1st year, when they do a lot of growing, but change to once a week, then maybe middle/high school every month, & if still living etc.
Once every 6 months +/-. Go back & look at your Freshman picture thru to Senior picture to see the temperature difference each year, just like school pictures each year = why I say at least 6 months, maybe 3 months 4 pictures. I focused on the child’s eyes, nose, & mouth as primary, & rest of face secondary. The facial features stayed the same the most part, but the shape of his head, hair cuts, etc. did change. He had more of a square head at times & rounder at others. I admire him to stick to every day for 6 years. It does show change in how the child looked at different times.
Also gives reason if a child goes missing 1), he has an exact age photo, 2) explains the difference in 2 parents description of the child’s face when telling, if out of town w/o handy photos.
