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.

Baby’s Video Diary is a new IOS app that en­ables par­ents to cap­ture spe­cial mem­o­ries or ev­ery­day snap­shots of their chil­dren or grand­chil­dren.

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.
