Where I have two or three albums full of my son’s baby photos, all lovingly compiled and correctly captioned, my daughter is lucky to even have a photo printed out and stuck to the fridge door.
It isn’t that I don’t have any – I take hundreds – it’s just that I’ve never managed to find the time to make them into a keepsake like I did with her brother’s.
Reading this week how by not printing our photos out we risk losing them forever has reminded me that I really should get going on the baby gal photo albums.
Google vice-president Vint Cerf is warning us that by storing our photos on hard drives, we may end up losing them as computer hardware becomes out of date and obsolete.
I can easily imagine that happening, as I have so many photos that I’d hate to lose stored on my phone and iPad. I’m definitely going to add making my daughter an album to my to do list.
To help remind me, I’m sharing one of my favourite photos of her as a baby. I love it because she is being held by her dad, who was in hospital at the time but allowed home for the afternoon for some much-needed family time.
Have you got round to making albums for your children? Or do you rely on storing images on the computer? I’d love to know – I need some second album-making inspiration!
