Family Photo Captures Multiple Generations in Frames

This Family's Viral Photo Captures 4 Generations in the Most Clever Way

Looking for a unique way to take a family photo or capture multiple generations? Try this genius idea. Photographer Amber Moose gathered up four generations of women, took photos of them all behind the same backdrop, and then, with a little Photoshop magic, produced a truly original image.

"This photograph is something I will cherish for the rest of my life," Nicole Margavitch said of their family's shot. "There are 72 years between the first and the last photo in this sequence, yet the values, beauty, and love transcend through generations. This photo captures the pride we have for those who came before us and those who came after us."

Want to re-create this with your own family, but aren't so savvy with photo design software? It's easy but takes a little more time:

  1. Start by snapping a photo of the youngest generation (or oldest if you wanted to do this in reverse). Zoom in as much as possible since it'll be the smallest picture in the final image.
  2. Print an 8"x11"-inch copy and frame it.
  3. Give this frame to the next-in-line family member to hold for their portrait, and try to snap an image as close-up as possible, with them holding the frame as close to their face as possible.
  4. Then, you'll simply repeat this with each person.
  5. Once you're done, place the final image in the frame you've been using, and hang it up for all to marvel at!

This idea doesn't have to be generational, either. It looks just as cool with family photos through the years, is a great one to consider for married couples to do on key anniversaries, and could even be a cute way to show the passage of time with just your child.
