The other day I took the twins to a brief doctors appt and snapped a photo with my phone. I then realized that I took a similar photo in 2011, only they were wearing gowns.

Let’s take a minute to celebrate the technological advancements in phone cameras, the general look of our doctors offices and the improvement in my own shutter skills {what up 2011?!}.

The twins? Well, they are a little older and a little taller, yet still as cute and silly today as they were then!

I need to dig out the old photos more often!





  1. They sure have changed since the previous photo and your right, cameras on phones, who would have thought. I never use my camera any more. Happy Valentines!!

  2. Wow, how they are grown! And yes, the quality of the 2011 picture leaves a lot to be desired. Now you have me thinking that I would love to do some sort of flashback for a future wordless wednesday. I realize yours was done unintentionally, which made it so awesome, but I love looking back and seeing how things have changed.

    1. I agree, I’d like to do it more often, even try and re-create some of the oldies. Would be so fun!

    Lovely comparison Tammy – seems we were on the same “archival” track back this week!! YAM xx

    1. Yes! If the lighting is superb, I have gotten some fantastic photos from my phone. Doesn’t happen often but sure surprises me when it does. I’m so anti-flash, lol.

    1. Same here, I tried finding a doctors office photo of my oldest but I don’t think i took one ever… makes me realize to take more candid/ordinary shots. You never know when you’ll want to look back on the simple yet special times!

  4. Awe – isn’t it fun to look back through old camera photos! Your girls are adorable!

    1. It is, makes me happy I take spontaneous photos! Thanks Nicole, have a great rest of the week!

    1. Thanks! Freezing cold here but sometimes I give up on saying no to dresses. These girls would live in them day and night if I let them!

  5. Great flashback! The twins are adorable. And yes, isn’t it amazing how much camera phones have improved? Remember our old flip phone camera phones? Those were awful! Happy Wednesday!

  6. This makes me want to upgrade my iPhone, it’s from 2011 haha. Cute photos, I wish I was that happy to be at the doctor’s 🙂

  7. wow! Your girls have definitely grown up! I agree that they grow up way too fast. When I’m in the moment, I wish they would grow up faster (yes, we are in the terrible 2 phase with the youngest right now), but once they are out of it and I look back, boy do I notice how much they have grown.

  8. ah…the girls are growing fast, Tammi 🙂 Sometimes I wish that I was still Mum to little Sara…she will 26 in September!! Time does fly.

  9. Ahh, super cute then and still cute. The girls have grown, technology as grown, and your shutterbug abilities have grown!
    Thanks for sharing the girls pic. A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E

  10. It’s great that you have the two pictures to remember and compare. Interesting to note the difference in phone photo quality (and photographer skill) in just a couple years. Thanks for sharing.
