The journey from being pregnant to being a parent and then seeing your kid walk around is memorable. The small mistakes, mischiefs, and lots of smiles at this time are something everyone wants to remember. They are worth preserving, and the photo memory books are an excellent way for it.
It can store your captured moment and provide a flashback of the good old times. The following are some tips to help you with the selection and crafting of these memory books.
Selection Of The Book
The memory book that you choose is as important as the content you fill in it. It should not look like a scrapbook or a simple dull paper collection. The book should reflect happiness, joy, and should present a direct connection with the photographs inside it.
There are tons of baby memory books that you can consider according to your taste. There are the semi-covered books, soft-covered books, journal type memory books, and many more. You can also consider getting a custom design for your little one.
Another thing you need to consider here is the type of photo memory book you get. Like if you are still pregnant, go for a picture book. You can use it to store the initial sonography images and your time with the soon to come baby. Similarly, if your baby is taking his/her first steps, try the growth tracking books. You can also consider holiday journals to store pictures as well as small artifacts from your journeys.
Mix And Match
Pictures of the baby are a good way to remember a moment, but they aren’t the only way. In fact, humans have a much better time remembering by places and objects that are emotionally connected. Therefore, don’t fill the photo book with photographs of your child or family only. Try looking from the baby’s eye and capture things that mattered in his/her childhood and relate to that time. You can capture pictures of their first clothes, favorite toys, first meal, first walker, and a lot of other things.
Even the thing as simple as socks or shoes is good to go if it has a back story to tell.
These things may not have a human touch or your baby in them, but they will present an emotional connection that will trigger a whole event’s memory rather than just a moment.
Placing the pictures in an organized manner is a good way to keep things clean and professional. However, it’s also boring and misses a personal touch. The baby boy memory book needs to exhibit your strong connection, love, as well as your innovation.
Therefore, rather than taking and pasting organized pictures, mix and match them. Consider taking clicks from several different angles and generate different sizes of photo depending on the depth of the snap. Then you can place them in ‘fill the page’ manner. It will take time and may not even look professional, but it will present a unique emotional touch.
Apart from the photos, you can also use stickers, emojis, and text to fill the book. Almost every best baby memory book includes these types of elements that make it different and more special.
Take Advantage Of Technology
This tip is not actually mandatory, but you can consider it as a suggestion to keep your baby book interesting. The section includes moving above from the common picture style and using filters and editing practices for the baby photos.
For instance, you can use Snapchat or Instagram filters to change the background, add elements, and even make some weird looking faces in the photographs. These photos will not have a background story, but they will present a fun part of your family. So, every time you see any of these pictures, you will have a big smile and a happy heart.
Babies are the most adorable part of anyone’s life. Seeing the little one grow from a cell to being and the feel of those small limbs is just unmatched. They bring happiness, joy, and give a new direction to your life. Storing the best year of their life in a book is a must. It will give you a happy point that you can always check later in your life.
So, use the few points decided above and make sure that you always have a memory stash to make your day.
