A proud mother has taken an identical picture of her daughter returning to school every year for the last 10 years.

Dagny Barnett, 53, has pictures of her daughter Chloë, 14, striking the same pose outside their home near Redhill, Surrey, England, since she started attending nursery a decade ago.

This year, as Chloë started her GCSEs as a Year 10 pupil, there was no exception in continuing the family tradition.

Dagny takes special pride in her “precious” daughter, whom she had after a seven-year ordeal that included seven rounds of IVF.

Thus, she is now taking the opportunity to mark each and every school year by making a catalog of pictures documenting Chloë’s transformation from a chubby-cheeked nursery child to a grown-up teen.

“It’s just nice to see the difference each year of how much she’s changed,” Dagny said. “The hairstyle and other bits have all changed over the years.”

The stay-at-home mom has strict rules for how Chloë must pose for the picture which includes side-on, smiling, and in school uniform.

The first batch of pictures shows Chloë from the age of 4 to age 11—from nursery to Year 6—while the second batch in her red blazer documents her time at secondary school.

“Chloë loves the pictures now she’s 14 and doesn’t have to go through the stress of mommy screaming ‘put your leg forward’ or ‘put your leg in the right place!'” Dagny said. “Seeing the old pictures is such a lovely memory of her junior school years.”
