Having the privilege of raising a daughter inspired me to start a dear daughter series many years back. This is a simple collection of some of my favorite images where I write something short and sweet. Sometimes my caption is a quote, and sometimes I talk about her big and little life moments.
I'm sharing with you the simple way I organize this photo project.
Someday I plan to print these images in a book and give to her on a special occasion; maybe towards the end of her teen years. Each photo and caption I share in Instagram is automatically saved in my Chatbook app by using inserted dear daughter hashtag. Most of the images I do not share publicly. For those images, I simply include manually in my Chatbook app. You can read more of why this is my favorite photo app here!
I like the idea that when she's a young adult she can look back on these little and big moments in her life. This childhood she's living is preparing her for adulthood.
This is my reminder to her, to invest in her mind, her health, and herself.
I'm not quite sure when she's listening or absorbing what I'm saying. Writing the most important things on paper I hope will inspire her future self.
