For 40 Years This Dad and Daughter Have Been Taking Pictures in the Same Spot Every Year

Every parent knows how fast their kid grows up. It seems like one day you’re changing their diaper and the next day they’re asking you for $30 to go to a concert. That’s why it’s important to cherish every moment you spend together – and Chinese father Hua Yunqing know all about cherishing moments. The man has an annual tradition of taking photos with his daughter Hua Hua in the same spot and has been continuing it for 40 years!

He had the first picture taken when he was just 27 years old and initially did not have any plans of turning it into a tradition. And once he saw the picture, he quickly made up his mind and decided to return to the same spot next year and repeat it, said the man in an interview with Daily Mail.

There’s only one time when the family missed the picture, in 1998 when Hua Hua was abroad.

Hua Hua had her first daughter in 2008 and her second one in 2012  and the whole family happily continued the tradition. “When I started, I never guessed that I’d still be doing this when I was in my 60s and my daughter is now no longer alone, she is a mother-of-two,” said the father. Let’s hope we see many more pictures in the future!

Here’s Yunqing looking over the photos in his album

Hua Yunqing

Yunqing was 27 when he took the first photo while his daughter was just a one-year-old. At first, he didn’t have any plans to make this into a tradition. But all of that changed when he actually saw the first photo and absolutely loved it.

“I didn’t have any thought of doing the same thing again but when I got the photo back, I liked it so much that when we went back the next year I repeated it,” he explained.

“After that, it became sort of the family tradition and we did it every year with only one break in 1998 when my daughter did not join us for the family holiday and was abroad,” Yunqing pointed out that there was a small gap in the photos.

Things changed quite a lot over the years. His daughter grew up into a beautiful woman and started a family of her own and that meant that Yunqing became a grandpa. Hua Hua’s first daughter was born in 2008 while her second daughter came into this world in 2012.

“When I started, I never guessed that I’d still be doing this when I was in my 60s and my daughter is now no longer alone, she is a mother-of-two,” he said, adding that he was pleasantly surprised by the positive reactions to the family photos online, even though he didn’t expect to continue the tradition forever.
