    I tried to do this with my son and still photos. He got angry after 6 years old and all my photos from then on had to be candid. Yes, I had to hunt my own child. This is a wonderful testimony of love that any parent can appreciate and identify with. Thank you for sharing.

    this is a fascinating document I tried to do something similar with my own daughter but lost interest quite soon into the says something about the relationship between a father and the daughter that she is still willing to do it the hundreds the times he asked her to pose to make the video happen.and certainly many parents can feel that their children are growing up as quickly as his 4 minute video portrays.
