12-01-13 Then & Now – 6 Months Old

2013 12-01 Then & Now - 6 Months Old by Watertown, South Dakota, photographer Scott Shephard

Yesterday’s photographic mission was to copy a photo that had been taken 59 years ago. The subject in the photo is Debra DeGeest (AKA Deb Shephard). The new subject for the copy was Glenny J. (AKA Glenyce Jane Shephard). The dress in both photos is the same dress – worn very little for the photo so long ago and worn only for a few minutes for the recent shoot. Both subjects are 6 months old.

Careful observers will note that there are striking similarities between the two children. Such is the nature of genetics. The single most striking thing to me is that they both seem healthy and happy. What more could you want?

    • Thanks for looking and for your comment, Tiffany. And I agree – I love looking at the sequence of things. I especially like the ones where she ignores all of her “people” and looks at me. Glenyce Jane is, of course, a perfect subject. 🙂

    • It was fun, Cheri. And a lot easier than I thought it would be. I ended up with a pretty good replica that was due less to my mastery than it was to having a good subject and plenty of “people” to do the crazy faces and funny sounds.
