Ever since the invention of the camera, people have been taking pictures of their family. Photos are a great way for us to remember the past and always cherish the memories we once shared with our families. With the invention of the cell phone, we’re able to capture those pictures much easier! And with the use of social media, we can share those photos much faster as well. This has allowed for a trend of “photo recreations.” It basically involves exactly what it sounds like, people taking old family photos and recreating the picture! Here are 18 of the most hilarious of those recreations!
#18 Just As Cool
There’s something that’s just a little less cool about the older guy in the second picture. Maybe it’s the pose, or maybe it’s just the picture in general. Either way, hopefully, he’s improved his skill since the time! Or perhaps he never really got into skateboarding and is just being the ultimate poser right now!
#17 Still Precious
The first image is an extremely precious moment being shared between a little boy and his newborn baby brother. The second picture differs quite a bit! The second one is definitely much more hilarious than the first, but it also shows that the brothers have stayed just as close as when they had that first special connection.
#16 Just As Crazy
The first picture shows just how crazy the family is on a day to day basis. The dad has his shirt off, and the brother is making a pretty silly face. The second picture just goes to show that things don’t really appear to have changed much than when the original picture was taken! Truly priceless.
#15 They Finally Fit
Pictures that show a little version of you wearing something compared to the present wearing the same thing can be bittersweet. They show just how far you’ve really come in your transformation. They also end up showing just how truly big you might have gotten and that there’s not really any going back to being that small!
#14 Still A Trend Setter
The first picture shows a pretty silly little kid who’s up to no good by wearing his shirt in a silly way. The second picture shows exactly the same thing! Again, it shows just how truly big this person has gotten over the years, but it also reminds us not to lose our silly childish side!
#13 Stronger Than Ever
This picture’s recreation skills are pretty high! They got everything the same from the pose, the wardrobe, and even the feet making a tiny appearance in the corner of the picture! It shows also just how strong and tough the boy has been able to get over the years!
#12 A Little Heavier
The first picture captures a perfectly adorable moment between father and son. The second is a little less precious, but no doubt is it still something that the two can cherish and share. It’s truly beautiful to be able to see the connections and bonds between family members last all of these years.
#11 Still A Family
Photos like these really show just how much people have changed throughout all the years. There have probably been so many school events, parties, funerals, and even weddings! The family seems to have been able to stick together through it all! At one point they were just two parents with a bunch of little kids. Look how far they’ve come!
#10 Not Quite As Easy
Sitting on dad’s handlebars and going for a spin with him was probably something that was fairly simple for these brothers. But now, it’s probably challenging for the two to even attempt that! Regardless, they’ll always have this picture as a reminder of the moments they used to be able to share together.
#9 Finally Grown In
Yet we have another picture here of a cute little kid wearing something that is too big for them. Little kids really are always such curious little creatures. It appears that the girl hasn’t lost any of her creative curiosity throughout the years! But now, the shoe actually fits!
#8 A Little Outgrown
It appears that the costumes may have outgrown them, but luckily for the adult boys, they make onesies for grown ups now! We wonder if the older brother still has any problem wearing a matching costume that’s the exact same thing as his baby brother? The two still look cuter than ever!
#7 Costumes Still Fit
Instead of Superman, we have Batman making an appearance four different times now! These boys look a little happier to be matching in costumes now. We wonder if they still enjoy eating Halloween candy as much as they used to? Either way, a lot of other things sure have changed!
#6 Just As Messy
It doesn’t appear that this girl has been able to learn any table manners in her plentiful years of growing. In all seriousness, this must have been a pretty fun photo to recreate. What was once the cute and innocent habits of a baby have become the disgusting bad manners of a grown woman.
#5 Still A Common Position?
We sure hope that this pose only happened to recreate the photo, and that still isn’t an everyday occurrence for the family! It looks like the baby boy has grown a lot, but we’re sure the mom’s lap hasn’t been able to grow in strength that much! Regardless, this is still a pretty adorable picture!
#4 A Lot Bigger
This photo just shows that the boy in the back hasn’t lost any of his skills in scaling walls! But for real, where did the guy in the front find the same t-shirt that he had been wearing as a little boy? It looks like the boy in the back decided to trade in his bowl cut for an arm full of tattoos.
#3 Still Crazy
This man just proves that he hasn’t lost any of his energy throughout the years. In the first picture, the little boy is going wild wearing what appears to be a t-shirt as pants. In the second picture, the grown man appears to be doing the exact same thing! He knows how to show that not much has changed after all!
#2 Still Crying
This photo just goes to show that the girl has remained a bit of a crybaby throughout all of these years! We really hope that she had stopped crying at some point! In all seriousness, this is a beautiful picture showing that all of the children have remained close and done well in growing up throughout the years.
#1 Not As Easy As It Used To Be
At one point, this talented mom was able to hold one of her children while balancing the other on her feet! It’s pretty clear, however, that now, things aren’t as easy as they used to be! But the kids did prove just how intelligent they’ve gotten, as they thought of a great way to use the counter to recreate the picture!
Picture recreations are truly incredible and show so many things in just two simple shots. They show that although many things have occurred in between the two photos, one thing remains always, and that’s the closeness and bond that families can experience. Nowadays, we seem to always be taking pictures with our phones, but there’s still something that seems a little less candid about it all. Hopefully, pictures like this will remind us to continue to document the lives of our children, friends, and family. One day, we’ll be able to take recreation pictures of the images we’re snapping now! Life truly is so short!
