Organizing Childhood Memories

  • Make it a family project. You may end up with photos that you like, but don't fit into any of your albums or displays. Get your children involved in creating their own photo albums with these, or with spare double-prints. Small children LOVE to page through pictures of their families. Older children can take their "book" to school for sharing. These photo albums can also help with homesickness when your child goes away to camp or college.
  • Carry the camera EVERYWHERE. If you want photographs as part of your memory book, forget the fancy camera and get something small and simple that you can slip into the diaper bag or a pocket. Children do not schedule "cute" activities for when the camera is set up. You have to catch them. Be prepared.
  • Your children will never again be exactly the way they are today. Start today to save those special memories.
