Four Generation Photography

We are very lucky in my family to have four generations of woman, spanning 92 years old to 4 years old!

I saw this photography idea on Pinterest and I thought it would be fun (and harder than expected) to do a four generation photo myself.

I took a photograph of my grandmother (who is, from what Google says, the Greatest Generation), holding a picture of my mum from Generation Baby Boomers, holding a picture of me from Gen X/Y, holding a picture of my daughter from Gen Z

A photo, I'm sure that, in many years from now, will be one of my favourites and will be passed down. But for now, it's a Mother's Day gift.

  1. What a fantastic idea. I wish there was any way I could do this. But maybe 3 generations is fine too :-)

    Eddie's Room on Facebook come over for some crafty ideas and conversation.

  2. How wonderful to be able to capture 4 generations. Maybe some day your daughter can add another picture and keep it going. So lovely!

  3. This is such a great idea. My family is all spread out so this would be a neat way to do a three or four generations photo. I stopped by from Fluster Buster.

  4. Oh, I love this idea!! Very rare that you see a Pinterest find reproduced so well. :)

  5. So pretty!

    We did this for my husband's Granddad birthday last year - It was great!! (the boys took all day getting the right angles of each shot!)

  6. How amazing is that, what a lovely photo of you all as well. Emily x

  7. I too saw this on pinterst a while back but seening it DONE here.....I am inspired. We have a wedding in July (my sons) I think I will make sure to work on making this happen!
