Child Age Progression


Joey Age Seven



Joey's Age Progression


"The picture of Joey is amazing! I gave it to my parents on Christmas day - it was the last present I gave them. I sat between them on the couch and I opened the box - as I opened it I said to my Mom - "I know this is something you had always wanted to do" - she started to cry before I lifted the top - They were both extremely emotional and shocked at the likeness to my Dad. My Dad - who holds so much inside, was crying and touched looking at "his boy". We all were crying - It was a moment that I'll always remember- somehow it made us all feel at ease - to see him as a man, rather than a seven year old boy - he is so handsome - yet there was a sadness and longing."

God Bless you and your family



The loss of a child or a young member of one's family can be a very sad and tragic event. The age progression technique may give some insight into a lost future for a surviving parent or sibling. Left is an example of this kind of age progression.

What is required?
A front view portrait color photograph or digital scanned image of the subject. The lighting on the face should be direct with a non-dramatic lighting pattern. The subject's hairstyle should be off the front of face. The age of the subject and the age of the progression are important factors that need to be considered. Additional family history information and family photographs may be required.
