Baby Memories: Capturing and Preserving Memories Of Your Child

If you’re a parent, every time your baby does something cute, or new, or passes a development milestone, it’s a time to celebrate. You want to be able to capture everything they do on camera or video – so you can keep the memories for years to come.

Whether it’s the first time they smile, crawl or walk – these are the moments that you want to keep forever.

As a company who specialises in transferring old movies on VHS to DVD, we know how important it is to have these memories captured. We help people with home movies that were filmed before the advanced technology that we have now, so these people can always look back on fond memories too.

Luckily for parents in recent times, there are a number of ways that you can capture everything new that your child does. Read on for some of our best ideas!

Don’t miss a moment with a digital video camera

Technology has advanced incredibly in the last decade, meaning that it’s easier than ever to capture everything on film – all you need to do is press record!

Video cameras allow parents to capture many aspects of one specific moment. This could be the faces, voices, environment and the mood of the moment!

You can film every smile, laugh and crawl as it happens. They allow you not only to capture the moment, but also the audio as well!

We believe that video was made especially for milestones – what’s better to capture the first time your baby utters your name?

Just remember that it’s just as important to be involved in these special milestones as filming them. Get someone else to press the record button whilst you enjoy celebrating your child’s first walk!

Take a picture

Video is amazing, but it can also be just as brilliant to take a picture. A lot of people will argue that a picture is worth more than a 1,000 words – especially when it comes to capturing specific moments in time.

A digital camera will allow you to instantly share a picture with all your loved ones – whether it’s through email or posting online. You can also pick and choose the pictures that you love the best, and those that you don’t like can be instantly deleted.

Use a smart phone

With your smart phone, you have a camera and video recorder in one. The camera on a phone is improving with every new year, meaning that it’s getting easier to capture moment with a clear and high quality pixel.

If you don’t like the picture, you can upload it straight from your phone and change it around a little with a photo editor.

The best thing about using the camera on your phone is that it’s always handy – most people have their phone nearby all the time. So if your child does something spontaneous, you will more likely be able to capture it will your phone.
