Look how much you've grown! Doting dad photographs daughter every day for 18 YEARS

Most parents document every moment of their child's early years, from the first step to the start of school and beyond.

But eager father Munish Bansal went the extra mile in documenting his daughter's life.

Young Suman Bansal, who turns 18 on Friday, has posed for her father's camera an incredible 6,575 times.

Now ahead of the teenager's milestone birthday, doting Dad Munish has compiled every single image into a spectacular photo montage of his daughter.

The teenager from Gillingham, Kent, has been photographed in the crib, with and without teeth, with a short boyish hair cut and later with flowing black locks.

Munish, 41, first got the idea when he saw an ultrasound of his unborn child.

He said: I decided to do this when Rita was pregnant. I just wanted to make a memory to see how they changed day to day, because if you see a child on a month to month basis you can see a big change and I wanted to see that change.

'Initially it was a hard challenge, but it has become like a routine. Naturally, it is a big commitment.'

Pictures were often taken in the morning before school or in the afternoon.

There have been a few moments when Munish thought he could have missed a day.

He said: 'There were couple of occasions I can remember it almost didn't happen. Once my wife thought I had taken the photos and while I was at work they went to stay at their aunt's home for a night. I had to go to her house to take the photos, but luckily they don't live far.'

Suman says: 'Being photographed every day just feels like any normal day as I have grown up with it my whole life.

'At times it can become irritating as I don't always feel my best especially when I am running late. I do not have a favourite picture because all are special. I cannot compare.'

Suman is currently completing her A-levels and hopes to go to university in September to study how to be a children's nurse.

She says: 'I would like to train and study to be a paediatric nurse, but keep photography as hobby.

'I am probably not going to continue the photographs when I leave home; I am very likely to forget a day.'

Munish also believes the project will come to a natural finish. He says: 'I will continue for next few months, Suman wants to continue, but once she has gone to university, it might be difficult for her, but let's see.'
