Photographer and filmmaker Frans Hofmeester's 'Time Lapse' Videos succinctly sums up the growth and development of his two children Lotte and Vince. Hofmeester's documentary-esque keepsake art has had the artist videotaping both Lotte and Vince since their births.

Hofmeester created video diary entries for his children every week since they were born until they turned 12 and nine-years-old, respectively. The viewer is able to watch as Lotte and Vince change from babies, to toddlers, to just shy of their teen years. 'Time Lapse' allows access into a normally intimate relationship between parents and their children -- as these children grow up on film before our eyes.

Hofmeester has successful captured the fleeting years that speed by and that parents try fruitlessly to preserve. Both of Hofmeester's time-lapse videos have enjoyed tremendous success by racking up millions of views since being posted. It only follows that time-lapse video keepsakes will experience an influx of attention and will no doubt be used to capture the treasured moments of children's lives. Frans Hofmeester will likely continue to document his children as they grow up and release another set of videos for both himself and for wide-eyed Internet users who enjoyed watching Lotte and Vince grow up.
