Four Noras - From 6 months to 3.5 years

October 2, 2012

Nora, at 2.5 and 3.5 years oldI love it when creative photography ideas come to fruition. When Nora was six months old, pretty much as soon as she could maintain a propped up sitting position in time for me to snap a photograph, I created a composite photograph of four of her sitting on our ugly green sofa. Then, a year later, I followed up with a shot of her six month old self with her eighteen month old self, which clearly left two spots on the sofa for older versions. Last year, I filled in the third spot with a 2.5 year old Nora. The time has now come (I set a calendar reminder) to continue the September tradition and add the fourth Nora to the sofa. Four Noras: From 6 months to 3.5 years

It's worth viewing larger.

Clearly she's grown a lot in the past year. And, for some reason, this is the first year I actually got her in focus. My past self was so inept.

Here's the close-up from last year and this year.

That's the same kid, alright!

Perhaps next year she'll have to start standing behind the couch? I'm not sure. We'll see...
