Recreating an Old Photograph

I love looking at old family pictures. Recently I came across a box of pictures from the 1950s of my dad when he was about 2 years old. What's crazy is that these pictures were taken out in front of the house where my Grandmother still lives. It was bizarre to see my dad as a little toddler sitting on the steps that I see all the time that I instantly recognized.

So of course since Benjamin is about the same age, I decided to recreate one of these pictures.

The first picture is my dad in 1955. He was about 2 and a half. (I may have to take another picture of Benjamin when he is 2 and a half). The second picture is of Benjamin a couple months before he turned 2.

Here are some other pictures I came across that I would love to recreate. This is a picture of my grandmother and my great grandfather, probably around 1932.

This is a picture of my grandparents at the beach when they first started dating.

I love this picture of my dad, aunt, and grandparents. This would be fun to recreate with Benjamin, Lyla, and Grant when they are a little older.
