115 People Who Took Their Family Photo Recreations To The Next Level (New Pics)


If you haven’t heard of this heartwarming trend, the chances are you were off to the moon. Because people have been recreating their old and dusty family photographs with pretty amazing results.


There’s something quite otherworldly about looking at people doing the exact same things they did many years ago. But it’s not only the time that sets these two photographs apart, it’s also all the experiences that happened between them, the transformations people went through, the ups and downs they conquered.


So today, we are taking a walk to see some of the loveliest and most soul-soothing family photograph recreations staring the same people, the same composition, sometimes even the same place and clothing, as in the old photograph. The modern remakes suggest that even when the world changes beyond recognition, there’s something inside every one one of us that stay the same.


Psst! More family photo recreations await in our previous features here and here.
