Family Recreating Childhood Photos: 8 tips By Aaron July 10, 2015 Share Share Copy Link Nothing brings back great memories than childhood photos. What better way to preserve those moments than by recreating some of them? Recreating family photos doesn’t have to be difficult. It’s a great way to bring family together and reminisce about the past. Image credit: Parentdish.ca Here are some tips for recreating family photos: Search, search, search. You can’t recreate a photo if you don’t have the original. Go through old boxes in storage or ask family members for some photos. Same people, same photo. Is it a photo of you and your brother? Make sure he can participate again. Choose photos that the same people will be happy to recreate. Choose similar clothing. You may not fit into that dress or shirt from 20 years ago, but look for similar clothing in your current size. Strike a pose. Was your leg bent? Did one relative sit and the other stand? Keep the same positions as in the original photos. Height doesn’t matter. Time has passed – people’s heights have changed. Don’t worry about these differences, it will just add more humor to the photo! Facial expressions. Give a big cheesy smile or pull a silly face. Funny or not, try and mimic the original photo. Set the right background. If you can return to the same place the photo was taken or use the same couch everyone sat on, that’s even better! If not, look for a neutral background and focus on recreating the people in the image, not the background. Image credit: mppmarketing.com Get out the baby pictures.
