Our birthday tradition.

Some people photograph their kids waiting for the bus in the same spot every year on the first day of school.  Some take pictures of their kids in front of the Christmas tree every Christmas Eve.  At our house, we take pictures of the kids in front of their growth charts every year on their birthdays.  These are certainly not professional quality portraits.  I don’t even worry about the lighting.  I just want a snapshot of each one of them on the actual day, and I love putting the pictures together to see the progression.  Today is Torin’s 7th birthday, and here is her progression over the past five years!

Love this idea Jadie! I wish I thought of it with the boys. It is so amazing to see how she has grown. What a beautiful girl you have!
