Family Heirlooms

"The girl in the photo is my sister," says Your Shot photographer Carole Mills Noronha. "It’s 1978 and she’s turning 5. My 5 year old niece, her daughter, is sitting at the same table in the same kitchen today at the same age." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
