How to protect + present your precious memories
Family

Organised computer folders – This means making folders for each child, each quarter, each month, special events, whatever works for you, but something that means not all of your photos and videos are lumped together in one huge folder.  And of course, back these up using cloud AND external hard drive storage, always better to be safe than sorry.

 

Photobooks or Photo Albums – I am old fashioned and have photo albums for our family snaps. I print them quarterly, and for some pics I print duplicates so one copy goes in the album, one framed on the wall. The other option is of course photobooks, there are some great options out there. Jump online and find a supplier you like.

 

Instagram prints and books  – Instagram has changed the way we take and share photos, who doesn’t love a filter these days! I print these and have a separate photo album for them, with special 4x4 pocket page inserts, or there are options for photobooks to be created straight from your Insta account! 

 

School Photos – I have made a Lever Arch folder to store these in, I want to create a folder where our boys can look back on their missing teeth and terrible haircuts, you’re welcome guys!  There are other great options, individual frames made specially for class or single photos, larger frames with multiple space to display all of your child’s school photos. As well as books that capture their entire school journey, with space for school photos, certificates and reports plus pages for them to write their current interests and goals.  

 

My Family Fabric Books – these are adorable and perfect for those with a newborn.  You select a certain number of photos of your family members: mum, dad, brothers/sisters, nanna/pop etc. these are then printed into a beautiful fabric book for your new bub to gaze at and then explore as they get older. Check your local creative business pages or markets, lots of small businesses out there making these sorts of things.

Press Play Family Videos – finally, of course this is where we step in! The best way to both protect and present your most precious family videos is to have Press Play create a Time Capsule video for you!  At Press Play Productions, we specialise in transforming raw clips into beautiful family videos.  We can take all of those bitsy clips on your phone or smart device and turn them into a gorgeous, professionally edited video, delivered to you via a movie file or DVD. Easy!
