Brilliant Idea- Number 1

This morning while watching a Breakfast programme while Little Miss slept, I tuned into a story that really puts forth a BRILLIANT IDEA. A father decided, for some reason, to take a photo of his daughter every day of her life. She is now 13 and she has a picture from every, single day of her life. Isn't that cool? What an amazing record of her life. And how amazing to be able to look at a year at a time and see all the subtle changes that occur in each Little Miss/Mister's life! They showed a slideshow of quite a few images which was quite dramatic to see. So, I propose that you consider utilising this BRILLIANT IDEA! Starting, perhaps with your child's next birthday, take a picture every day. It doesn't have to be the same setting or perfect photo op, just a random photo each day. The dad in the story generally took his pictures either in the morning or when his daughter arrived home from school. If a picture every day is too much, what about 1 each week? Start a folder on your computer and download the photos to it. Then, on their next birthday, print out the photos and put them in an album for a birthday present. I think this is a BRILLIANT IDEA and I intend to begin it next month when my Little Miss turns 1. I haven't totally decided if I want to do 1 a day or 1 a week...I'll let you know! Good luck yourselves!
Cheers for now!


  1. I LOVE this idea!! Being a bit of a photo freak anyway I probably have taken photos of my baby at least every week and sometimes more than once!! What a clever Daddy he was, see they do come in handy sometimes!!

  2. Daddies have their moments, don't they? My dad gave me another annual birthday picture. I OFFICIAL birthday picture every year. Similar pose or setting if possible. Again, a brilliant snapshot of the years when done. :) We've got Little Miss' First Birthday next week so I'm starting then...wish me luck! :)
