Photo's - Memories That Can't Be Forgotten

Photo’s truly capture a moment in time, a memory that might otherwise be lost and even forgotten.  I adore taking time to look back on old photos and remembering a precious moment forever etched into a simple piece of paper.

I try and take a lot of photos and often. Children grow so fast and landscapes change by the day. The introduction of digital photography was really a double edged sword for me. Photos are no longer limited to special occasions due to pricey film; I can capture every day moments by the dozens and search for that shot I just love.




On the other hand I rarely take the time anymore to print photos, making my younger kids’ albums quite slim in comparison to my older kids – before I made the digital switch. As convenient as it is to store and share photo memories via the computer with friends and family across the world, there is something about holding a photo in my hand or being able to frame it and place it upon my wall that still holds great appeal to me.



Although I try and digitally save every photo I take of children, I’ve also been trying hard to make sure that at least bi-monthly I take the time to have my favorites printed out. Whether I create a photo book, or just get standard prints, at least I have got photos on hand.  Phones get lost and hard drives crash and these two scenarios have happened to me more than once. I was crushed to have lost some of my most precious photos. But I guess I only have myself to blame for not backing up and not printing out!

I guess I find myself wondering how you store your photos. Do you print them or place them on a disc? And if so how often?

Usually I forget to store them and lose them in various computer crashes. :(

I finally got all my digital pics moves to their own external drive - now I just need to organize them. Lol, like that's ever gonna happen :)

Such adorable pics! Mine are in desperate need of organization. Some printed photos, some on cards, online on discs. Oy!

Aren't pictures the most wonderful thing to bring an unexpected smile? I've slowly been getting some of our more special memories made into canvases and they never fail to make me happy each time i look at them.

Can I tell you how OCD I am? I organize them by date, copy them to the external HD, burn them on a CD for the fire proof safe, and then burn a 2nd copy and send them to my Mom in Florida to keep "just in case." I know, I know...there is something not right about that.
