From the day babies are born they have photos taken of them almost constantly as family members come to visit and have their picture taken with the newest member of the family. Thanks to this there will always be a surplus of photos of someone when they were a baby, meaning parents and family members will never forget what someone looked like. However, from the baby stage to the primary and secondary school stage, there are few times parents stand back and think they need a photo of their child at that certain age, but in the future it’s exactly what they wish they’d thought to themselves.
Parents don’t need to make a huge deal about taking photos of their children every now and then, but they do need to ensure they do it, otherwise they’ll end up missing the opportunity when it’s right in front of them. To help with this, many parents keep a baby diary, a record of when their child did different things for the first time in their lives, such as said their first word or walked for the first time. Alongside the entries in these diaries parents can put photos, and use the diary as a way to remember certain key events in their child’s life.
Keeping one of these diaries will help parents get into the habit of taking more photos of their children. Once they’re in this habit then they can carry it on as the child grows further, although they won’t need to keep a detailed diary note for each and every picture they take. Taking all of these pictures will mean parents need somewhere to organise their favourites. They can create a range of albums on their computer to record each year or month, or they can choose their favourites and have them printed ready for organising. Printed photos need to be kept in a photo album to stay safe and preserved, and there are so many to choose from it can be hard to know which one to get. For a child’s growth photo album, a lot of pages are necessary, and the pages need to be as big as possible to get in as many photos as a page will fit.
By keeping a detailed record of a child’s growth, parents can show their friends and family what their child used to look like for many years. These albums are always helpful to couples when their children have left home for university, as it helps them remember what life was like when they used to have children running around their feet causing chaos and trouble at every corner.
