23 “Then and Now” Photos That Will Make You Smile

Life moves in a flash and if you’re a parent, you already know that kids grow up so fast that if you blink you might miss it. Taking photos of our children is one way to preserve those special memories throughout the years but one trend that I love is “then and now” photos.

Photos that recreate childhood photos hold a special place in our hearts and the result is adorable. It is even more special for the parents who get to relive that moment with their kids who are all grown up. Enjoy these 23 childhood photos and I’m sure they will make you smile.
