This Dad and Daughter Took The Same Photo At The Same Spot for 35 Years

Do kids grow up really fast? Ask any parent, and they will tell you that their kids grew up in the blink of an eye. That’s why many parents try to capture as many memories as they can because they know that their kids will grow up and move away one day. This father, Hua Yunqing, wanted to capture memories with his daughter, Hua Hua. So he started to take a photo with his daughter in the exact same spot every year. Let’s have a look at how Hua Hua grew in her life and transformed from a little girl into a mother of two adorable children.

Their First Photo: 1980

Here is the first photo Hua Yunqing took with his daughter in front of the river while they were on their holidays in Zhenjiang, China. It was this photo that gave him the idea to do this every year.

Once the picture was developed, Hua knew what he needed to create, which would serve as a time capsule for his daughter. But it required commitment as they had to return to the spot year after year.

Photo With A Two Years Old Hua Hua: 1981

Hua Yunqing knew what he needed to do, and he was ready to follow his dream project with all the required dedication. So, he brought his family back to Zhenjiang in 1981 and again took a photo with his cute 2-year-old daughter.

Hua Yunqing

As compared to the first photo, Hua looks more alert and cheerful in this one. At that time, Hua Yunqing was 27 years old.

Third Year In A Row: 1982

It is the third year of them taking a photo at the same spot, and nothing much changed. The father looks still as young as he was three years ago, and the cheerful Hua is wearing the very same dress that she wore the previous year.

Third Year In A Row: 1982

Hua Yunqing

As she’s rocking the same haircut, she has started to become more independent and confident.

Same Beautiful Smile: 1983

In this photo, Hua Hua looks a little bit taller, and she’s still wearing those ruffled shirts. Her father has a calm and very cheerful smile on his face, and she still has the same hairstyle.

Same Beautiful Smile: 1983

Hua Yunqing

This is the first photo that has a pagoda in the background, so look out for it in the other photographs.

The Last Summer Before Starting School: 1984

Since the previous year at the lake, Hua noticed the changes in his daughter. She was now five, and she was ready to take on the world one small footstep at a time. 

The Last Summer Before Starting School: 1984

Hua Yunqing

This was the last trip the family would take before Hua Hua would start school in the fall. Hua Hua loved the frilly outfit she had chosen to wear in that year’s photo. 

Thanks To Technology, Their First Colored Photograph: 1985

The first colored photograph of father and daughter gives us a completely new look at Hua Yunqing’s project. He must have invested some money to get the new camera. The background is still a bit hazy, but you can see the pagoda in full color.

Thanks To Technology, Their First Colored Photograph: 1985

Hua Yunqing

The bright magenta dress on Hua Hua is elevating her beauty, and the pair of sunglasses on her forehead shows the development of fashion sense in her.

Photo Before A Swim: 1986

As Hua Hua is seven years old in this photo, she has grown enough to take a swim with her father. She is still wearing ruffles, and this time, there is no signature button-down collared shirt on her father.

Photo Before A Swim: 1986

Hua Yunqing

It looks like these two are having the best time throwing water on each other and taking a swim together. The daughter is growing up, but the fantastic thing is that her father hasn’t aged at all.

Stylish Dad With Young Hua: 1987

Well, the year 1987 is all about getting a bowl cut, and young Hua looks lovely in it. It is clear by now that Hua loves ruffles, and she looks so angelic in that white dress.

Stylish Dad With Young Hua: 1987

Hua Yunqing

Her dad, on the other hand, is still rocking with his fashion sense and unbelievably young skin.

Hua Hua Started Grade School: 1988

As Hua Hua is nine years old, she has probably started school already and looks wiser here. And hey, she doesn’t have the bowl cut anymore as well, and she’s not wearing any ruffles.

Hua Hua Started Grade School: 1988

Hua Yunqing

Her dad, on the other hand, is looking as fresh as before with his sunglasses. He seems quite a lot like Elton John, what do you think about it?

Dad’s Heightened Fashion Sense: 1989

We can all see that Hua Hua is looking lovely in this photo, and there’s no denying that, but what about her father. Although it is the 1980s, his fashion sense is quite high.

Dad's Heightened Fashion Sense: 1989

Hua Yunqing

Just so you may know, we used a bit of a sarcastic tone here. Come on, look at his shorts and the risk he took with the hat. Nevertheless, he still looks young and joyful, as always.

Dad’s Same Elegance, New Glasses: 1990

Hua Hua is rocking a hairstyle that is much better than her bowl cut, and the side-swept bangs are way ahead of their time.

Dad's Same Elegance, New Glasses: 1990

Hua Yunqing

Her fashion sense has really impressed us, and we don’t need to say much about her dad. He’s looking younger and hotter with each year.

New Decade, Same Dedication: 1991

The start of the new decade didn’t change the yearly tradition of coming to Zhenjiang and taking a photo by the river. From the striking matching poses to the confident smile on both of their faces, everything about this photo is beautiful.

New Decade, Same Dedication: 1991

Hua Yunqing

It’s been a decade since both father and daughter took their first photo together. Times flies, and we can tell that by looking at Hua Hua.

Times for Electronic Gadgets: 1992

With entering the 1990s, Hua and his lovely daughter have started to live in the future now. There is a pager strapped to Hua’s belt, and it seems like Hua Hua is holding a portable tape player. She even has earphones, and everything looks so crazy in this photo.

Times for Electronic Gadgets: 1992

Hua Yunqing

She is 13 years old and showing signs of maturing. Though her Winnie the Pooh t-shirt shows that she’s still a kid inside.

Growing Taller: 1993

In this photo, Hua Hua has become a beautiful 14-year-old girl, and her father is 39.

Growing Taller: 1993

Hua Yunqing

She’s wearing two little hair clips and a lanyard with keys on it. She’s almost as tall as her father and he is barely showing signs of aging.

Hair Blowing In The Wind: 1994

With Hua Hua’s hair blowing in the wind, it reminded us of a fact that’ll amaze you. Bob Dylan’s song “Blowin’ In The Wind” was released exactly thirty years before this photo was taken.

Hair Blowing In The Wind: 1994

Hua Yunqing

What are the chances that both father and daughter took a windblown photo on the anniversary year of the song? Hua Hua is starting to look more like her father, and they have similar smiles.

Start of High School: 1995

The 16-year-old adorable Hua Hua has started high school at the time this photo was taken. It means that she has entered the most awkward phase of her life: yes, the teenage stage.

Start of High School: 1995

Hua Yunqing

As she’s wearing braces and glasses, nothing seems to worry her. She’s sharing a cute smile with her father and looks like she doesn’t have a care in the world. 

Thankfully She Didn’t Wear The Hat: 1996

One thing we know by now is that Hua looks good in almost everything except for that hat, which we saw previously. Here, the brown belt is a bit fancier than what we saw before.

Thankfully She Didn't Wear The Hat: 1996

Hua Yunqing

Hua Hua is looking good in her jean jumper, but thankfully she is not wearing the hat and only holding it in her hand.

Bye, Bye Braces: 1997

Hua Hua’s smile got a lot bigger without the braces. She had the braces for two years, and we were missing her beautiful smile.

Bye, Bye Braces: 1997

Hua Yunqing

We love how she tucked her pink floral shirt into a pair of high waist jeans. That was the style of the ’90s. Her father looks the same, and the only different thing is his tie of a different color.

Coming Back After A Gap: 1999

If you are thinking about why there is no photo of 1998, then there is a good explanation for it. Hua Hua and her father couldn’t take their annual photo because she was in school abroad and couldn’t join the family on holiday.

Coming Back After A Gap: 1999

Hua Yunqing

So, this brings us to 1999. The elegant Hua Hua no longer has a bowl cut, and she has even grown out her hair. As she is approaching adulthood, she has started to wear mature dresses as well.

Told Ya They Grow Up Fast: 2000

This beautiful photo was taken in 2000, and this means that she has turned 21 in this photo. Her ever-young father has turned 46 years old.

Told Ya They Grow Up Fast: 2000

Hua Yunqing

She has her hair crimped, and we have to admit that she looks stunning in the entirely red outfit. Hua Yunqing seems like he has an expensive camera in his bag, and he’s not wearing his glasses. He still looks young here as well.

The Dad’s Smile Hasn’t Changed At All: 2001

First of all, we need to address the widest tie on her dad (it holds the world record for being the widest tie in the world). Secondly, the bag of Hua Hua looks stunning, right?

The Dad's Smile Hasn't Changed At All: 2001

Hua Yunqing

Hua Hua is 22 now, and she’s looking more beautiful than ever. She has reached the age to drink in almost any country out there.

Following Father’s Footsteps: 2002

Hua seems like she only has one role model when it comes to fashion: her father. We previously saw how her father showed off his brilliant fashion sense; here is his daughter showing off a little bit as well.

Following Father's Footsteps: 2002

Hua Yunqing

She has a Louis Vuitton bag, and though the jeans are a bit from the ’90s, she has everything right. Her dad is looking as impressive as ever. We are loving his Tommy Hilfiger polo and, of course, his smile.

All Grown Up: 2003

Hua Hua is not a little girl anymore. She has grown up into a beautiful, confident woman. Hua Hua is like a professional lady in her business casual outfit. It seems like she has been using a curling iron lately, and what about the fantastic glow on her face.

All Grown Up: 2003

Hua Yunqing

Her father seems like he takes a bath in the fountain of youth every day. He hasn’t aged much, because he is about to reach 50 years old. And how can we forget about his polo shirts? He just knows how to keep it cool.

A Little Bit Dyeing of Hair: 2004

As Hua Hua dyed her hair an auburn red, she’s looking more beautiful than ever. Her father, on the other hand, has finally decided to give a rest to polo shirts.

A Little Bit Dyeing of Hair: 2004

Hua Yunqing

However, he is not saying goodbye to the sunglasses. The classic white tee and blue jeans look good on him. And just like you, we are also waiting for a photo in which he looks like he is getting older.

They Just Changed Sides: 2005

It seems clear now that Hua Hua did grow a bit taller than father. She has grown up into a young, empowered woman, and the smile on both father and daughter faces tells the entire story. She has her own sense of style.

They Just Changed Sides: 2005

Hua Yunqing

Hua Yunqing couldn’t live without his polos, and he’s back to wearing them. Also, Hua was on the left side in all photos, and now she has gone to the right side.

Just Look At The Camera: 2006

It seems like Hua Hua’s sense of style keeps on improving with time, and she looks super stylish here. But we all know that it is not Hua Hua’s stylishness that is impressing us, it is the big camera of her father.

Just Look At The Camera: 2006

Hua Yunqing

We are wondering why they didn’t take the photo with this giant camera. The way he is holding the camera, we think that any other camera would seem inferior in front of it.

A Little Aged Dad: 2007

Finally, we have a photo in which we can see that her dad has aged. Although he is over 50 years old in this photo, we still think he looks super-hot here. He seems wiser than ever now.

A Little Aged Dad: 2007

Hua Yunqing

Hua Hua has cut her hair shorter, and there’s a new handbag as well. It seems like she has a good collection of bags back home.

Photo With Daughter and Granddaughter: 2008

And then there were three in 2008!  Hua gave birth to an adorable baby girl, and Hua Yunqing became a grandfather. Look at the happiness on their faces.

Photo With Daughter and Granddaughter: 2008

Hua Yunqing

With the birth of a granddaughter, they didn’t forget to keep on their family tradition of taking a memorable photo each year. First, it was the daughter, and now it is the granddaughter being a part of something so special.

Granddaughter is Growing Up: 2009

Hua Yunqing and his beautiful daughter remained dedicated to their tradition in all these years, and now they include a little angel into it as well.

Granddaughter is Growing Up: 2009

Hua Yunqing

From now on, her daughter will be there for every yearly photo as well. We can see that Hua Hua has traded her stylish handbags for a diaper bag, and the baby girl is all dressed up. She must be getting all the fashion guidance from her mother.

Happiness Everywhere: 2010

By this time of the year, the cold weather made them wear warm clothes. It looks like it was raining that day too, and it is great to see that they didn’t mind the weather. We have noticed by now that the family knows how to keep a broad smile on their faces.

Happiness Everywhere: 2010

Hua Yunqing

Hua Hua is back with a handbag that looks a bit older, but we think that she doesn’t really care about her purse as she has other things to care about.

The Photo of Three Generations: 2011

Hua Hua is just like her father when it comes to hiding the age. She doesn’t look more than 20 in this photo, and yet she’s actually 32. 

The Photo of Three Generations: 2011

Hua Yunqing

The little angel has grown up as well and she’s so excited to be with her mother and grandfather. It is like everything in the reverse mode and they look so beautiful together.

Another Happy Addition to The Family: 2012

With another baby in 2012, the family keeps growing. Hua Yunqing became a grandfather to another baby girl, and isn’t she adorable?

Another Happy Addition to The Family: 2012

Hua Yunqing

Hua Hua and her daughter looks like twins in their matching outfits. The grandfather is still rocking his polo and sunglasses. He seems like the coolest grandpa in the world.

Same Old Smiles: 2013

The youngest child is growing up, and she looks just like her mom. Hua Hua looks quite charming herself, and when speaking about the collection, she said, “Each time I look at these pictures, I couldn’t help crying. As I can feel love, lots of love.”

Same Old Smiles: 2013

Hua Yunqing

The grandpa looks calm and happy as he knows he has raised his daughter well, who, in return, is raising two future strong women.

Family Matching Clothes: 2014

Hua Hua and her daughters are all wearing the same shade of light blue, and one thing is clear that they all operate as one team.

Family Matching Clothes: 2014

Hua Yunqing

The grandpa is 60 by now, and he looks a bit older, but that doesn’t matter. Time flew so fast, and when talking about it, Hua said, “It’s a memory. When I look at the pictures, I feel I have a time machine.”

When you do something just to irritate your mom, but now it is in your yearbook forever, and there is no way to get rid of it.

His mom clearly didn’t understand that he wanted to show off his muscular legs in his jorts and muscle tank. This photo could also be captioned, “‘Merica.”

Pronounced "Pareekeet"

He made it his senior quote cause that was the thing he said over and over throughout high school.

Do you think her dad laughed or got mad when he saw what she ended up putting in the yearbook?

High school is a time to find out who you really are. You can reinvent yourself and try out different looks, hairstyles, and attitudes. Amberlyn was able to discover her sexuality during her four years in school.

Some people just aren’t photogenic, and that’s ok. Not everyone is meant to be a model. 

He Turnips In The Garden

This quote is bizarre beyond anything we could imagine. Does this person actually roll around and pretend to be a carrot? Does their neighbor still not know? 

He Turnips In The Garden

We are not sure where this quote originated, but whoever thought of it must be an interesting person. 

Was This Planned?

Noah and Mason, we need some answers about these quotes. Did you plan this, or do you both love bubbles? Maybe someone saw the quotes and saw a good opportunity and put their quotes together.

And It’s All Down Hill From There

One hundred thirteen thousand eight hundred eighty hours is 4,745 days and about 13 years/ That is a lot of time to spend in school, only to have to go to more school. You spend that much time in school, and when you graduate, you are only qualified to work at a fast-food chain.

These identical twins are copies of each other, and it is hard to tell them apart, so they made a joke out of it. Did you know people named their children “Dollar?”

Copy + Paste

They also look way too old to be in high school. Some seniors must mature faster than others. 

“I Always Knew Brooke Would End Up On Top Of Me.”

Blake has had a crush on Brooke for the entirety of high school. He never got a chance with her, so this was his time to shoot his shot. 

"I Always Knew Brooke Would End Up On Top Of Me."

The yearbook may be the only chance he has to be close to Brooke, and we respect his bold attempts to get her attention.
