Dear Marlene,

I don’t know of any databases per se, but I recently wondered the same thing and started pulling various links together. Below are a few instances I’m aware of when individuals or groups have taken photos every year (not ideal, but depending on what you’re after, could suffice). 

There is also a BBC documentary by Robert Winston (‘Child of Our Time') which follows 25 children born in 2000 - you could probably get some good images from there. 

If you ever pull together a database though, that would be a brilliant resource!

Sorry to not be able to supply anything better!

All the best,
