Taking the Same Photo Year After Year

There are so many great ways to use your pictures! One of my favorites is creating photo traditions. A “photo tradition” is taking/using pictures in the same way over and over again. There are so many ideas for photo traditions that we thought we would focus on one terrific one in this blog.

In the attached Ted Talk, the speaker discusses his taking the same picture of his daughter each year. The tradition started by accident:

“A long time ago in New York City, Steve Addis stood on a corner holding his 1-year-old daughter in his arms; his wife snapped a photo. The image has inspired an annual father-daughter ritual, where Addis and his daughter pose for the same picture, on the same corner, each year. Addis shares 15 treasured photographs from the series, and explores why this small, repeated ritual means so much.”

Try it! Pick a day, time, location that’s special to you and take the same picture year after year. Maybe it’s Christmas or Thanksgiving. Maybe it’s your child’s birthday – or your birthday! Regardless, photograph is year after year and see how special those pictures become.
