While browsing on Flickr I discovered a great project for giving children their First Own Portrait. The photographer then takes a photo of them holding their polaroid portrait.

I thought it was a fabulous idea and it made me think about how lucky we are (and how much we take for granted) the ability to save a "snapshot" of our own or our children's lives.

As a photographer and scrapbooker, it is almost astounding to think (in this day and age) that some people will never see a photo of themselves and never be able to have that momento of what they looked like at 5 years old etc.

It's a great project and I encourage you to check out the photos at
