The idea of seeing how their parents looked in their youth is something that many children have thought about. While we can’t travel back in time, we can use photographs to get a glimpse into the past. This is exactly what a group of girls did in a fun and sweet trend on Twitter.
The trend was to recreate one of their mother’s photos from when they were young, at around the same age. It was created in relation to Mother’s Day, and all of these young women recreated a photo for their mothers. Photography technology was not as advanced back then, so the cameras used were handheld and used film. This means that the photos could come out blurry, unfocused, or with other errors. But these imperfections are what give the photos their charm and make them memorable.
We’ve collected some of the best photo recreations from this trend and compiled them into this list. The daughters can be seen wearing outfits similar to what their mothers wore in the original photos, and they all seem to nail the look. It’s amazing to see how they try to get the shot as close to the old photo as possible. Even if it’s just a trend, it’s clear that it brought these pairs of mothers and daughters even closer together.
