It’s something that you hear from parents all the time. “I wish I could pause time, and my children would stay young forever.” As parents long for the times when their kids’ lives were simple.
Parents need to accept that their kids grow up and live their own lives. For one Dutch father, he had a unique approach to demonstrating the growth process of his daughter.
Frans Hofmeester, a Dutch filmmaker, had an exciting idea of making a film portrait of his daughter every week of her life—starting from when she was a newborn to when she turned 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.
