Video memories made to last
Now that digital cameras are so cheap and many phones have them inbuilt, it’s easier than ever to take photos in abundance. With free hosting sites such as Flickr, there’s really no hurdle in creating a bountiful collection of photos of your family.
Video cameras used to be expensive and an effort to use, now we have them on our phones too. Experiment with making videos and you’ll soon find them improving in quality and continuity. Flickr and Youtube both offer free video hosting.
Sites like Zazzle, Lulu and Album works offer custom calendars to keep track of your family’s growth. Upload photos, videos and documents for milestones and special events to look back on.
Creating a blog for each of your children can help you compile all of your media in one place. Tumblr and Blogger are favourites for embedding photos, written passages, videos and more, as children grow up. You can imagine how much fun it would be for them to look back on and read.

The app allows users to make multiple video or audio diaries, upload and sync them via icloud or itunes’ File Sharing, and also document their biggest steps with the app’s Milestone Page. Available at itunes store.
