Forever Preserve The Memories Of Your Kids
One thing that’s certain is that time flies; babies are born today, and sooner than we realize, they are already graduating high school. And because the childhood days go by so fast, it is essential to find ways to capture, protect and preserve them.
Luckily, today, there are innumerable ways to capture and freeze a moment to preserve the beautiful memories. We can use our phones, cameras, laptops, tablets, and so on, to capture or record videos, audios, and photos. About a century ago, the only way to capture images was through an artist who would use their keen eye to draw.
Many of us fully depend on technology to do everything: in addition to taking pictures and recording videos, we also want to keep the files stored on our phones, computers, memory cards, or hide drives. Unfortunately, plenty of things can go wrong if we only rely on technology. For instance, the storage devices might be corrupted due to unexpected system shutdown, or they may even get lost. Sometimes, we might be victims of cyber-attacks and can’t access anything on our computers. In such cases, we end up losing very important memories.
In this article, we give you tips on how you can preserve your kids’ memories forever. But before that, here are a few ways to get the best from what you choose to keep:
Identify pictures that represent a milestone
It’s easy to want to keep every single image or video, however as kids grow, you’ll realize that it isn’t practical to do so. Therefore, you can record as many captions as you’d like, but only pay attention to ones that represent a milestone. A great idea is to keep memories of things like their time of birth, first words, first steps, first day at school, their wins, and so on.
Choose the best candids
If you are like many people, it’s likely that you take numerous shots (like five or more) of any given moment. So, the trick is to pick one or two that look best, especially if storage is an issue.
Have something for each year
Don’t stack numerous pictures of one event because they look great, and delete others for another event because they aren’t as great. Instead, choose to save a little bit of everything.
Here’s how to preserve your kids’ memory
Create a photobook album
Find the best photobook for your pictures. The best way to go about this is by working with a company that allows you to customize the book to your liking. A photo book lets you keep your photos in a presentable, yet easy to access way. If well maintained, photo books can last for many years.
Using cloud backup
Another way to preserve your kid’s memory is to backup all files in the cloud. This goes a long way in ensuring that the documents remain safe, even after the device gets lost or is no longer working. Don’t depend on the automatic backups, rather do it manually, and double check to ensure that the files are indeed stored.
