Dad Shoots His Daughter Every Week For 18 Years, Shows How Subtle Changes Make A Big Difference At The End

Frans Hofmeester, a filmmaker and artist from the Netherlands, has just given his daughter Lotte the best birthday present. The loving dad has been filming her every week since the moment she was born in 1999 until she turned 18, and has put it all together into a stunning timelapse video.

“When Lotte was born, she was changing at such a rapid pace,” Hofmeester told The Guardian. “I was desperate to keep the memories intact.” Filming his daughter, Frans would ask her about her week, or what she did at school. The “Portrait of Lotte, 0 to 18 years” has already accumulated over 3,6M views on YouTube, and the numbers keep growing. “I think the reception has been so strong because the film speaks to people. It carries a message about living your life, and enjoying every moment of having your children with you.”

Something changed abruptly in her eyes when she was 16. I hope it's just an impression...

She looked more sad and didnt smile as often as before. From 17-18 it was significant, the smile looks mostly forced or isnt even there
