Bloom Forum/Project 52 “Growth” {Greenwood, SC Lifestyle Photographer}

and…welcome to sunday!  today is not only the beginning of a new week, but a very special easter sunday.  i hope you all have plans to spend this day with those you love and enjoy all that easter brings.

this week’s theme for my Project 52 on the Bloom Forum is “growth”.  when we hear the word growth it can trigger so many thoughts.  but i would guess that for most parents, “growth” instantly makes us think of our children.   and i knew i’d only be happy if i could find a way to show my own daughter’s growth for this week’s project.

ever since we moved in to our house when my daughter was 2, we’ve marked a spot on the laundry room door frame to show her growth.  here she is standing next to it admiring her current height…and aching for the next spurt which will propel her even closer to her daddy’s 6’5 height.  if you look at the line closest to her elbow, you can see where she measured the very first time we stood her against this door frame 6 years ago.  my how time flies and children grow!

want to see more great images? start by visiting the talented las vegas photographer, carrie terrones and then follow the circle around to see what the rest of my group came up with. be sure to leave a little “blog love” if you see something you especially like!

    What a wonderful idea! Look how tall she has gotten, wow.

  • I LOVE this! Being a Military family, we’ve lived in 6 different houses in the last 5 years, so this is something I’ve always longed to do but never been able to. I know that you’ll cherish this for years to come 🙂

    Absolutely PERFECT for this week Amanda! I wanted to do something like this, but left our growth lines at the last house. Now we’re waiting for the big spurt….

    wow–6’5” is a lofty goal. we have a growth chart on one of our walls too!! even though we don’t see it every day, it’s proof that our babes are growing!

    We have the same super technical system in our house! Love this capture and your conversion.

  • Rachel McPhillips - April 25, 2011 - 12:06 pm

    I really wish we had a growth chart like this.. I guess it’s never too late to start!
