I’m obsessed with time travel – in movies, books, art..the list goes on. There is something historical and magical about time lapse or time series photography. I love seeing the beauty in a span of time, and yet a feeling of final (eventual) inevitability captured in one photo.

Playing off of this idea, starting with the first year of getting married, we have taken a portrait on each anniversary. Here are the first 5 for the first 5 years.







Here are some other really cool gems of time lapse family portraits.

Forty Portraits in Forty Years

Father & Son for 3 Decades

Recreations of Childhood Photos

Portrait of Lotte, 0 to 14 years in 4 min – would love to do something like this for my LO.

Looking forward to seeing how this recursive family portrait evolves into 5 decades from now!
