Time-Lapse of a Girl from Birth to Age 12

After his daughter Lotte was born, Dutch photographer Frans Hofmeester began creating weekly videos of her to document her growth. Lotte recently turned 12, and Hofmeester decided to edit all the footage so far into this amazing time-lapse video showing twelve years of growing up in just under three minutes.

    Thank you for sharing these photo’s , they are absolutely delightful . I must echo the same comment as Selena-teresa .As the father of an almost 12 year old girl I find myself wishing we could wind back the years – “time” has gone too fast , but then you want to see your child develop and use their talents ,enjoy their personalties etc

    that’s a rather bleak and depressing assessment.

    What a project of love and a great keepsake! I’m guessing he has longer footage of shot and he has condensed those/splice them together. It is a reminder that time flies and we need to make the most of every moment! An encouragement to my fellow human beings…Tempus fugit; carpe diem.

    It is an emotional journey! Especially if you have a daughter of 6 years old – (who would also appear to be constantly talking if filmed in this way!) Children grow up so quickly and this really brings it home! – and babies??? You really only have them for a very short time ! Don’t miss a day

    Since the first two entries were by `Michael’, perhaps the correction is not by a troll? Just the original poster, correcting his own wording?
