Like most parents these days I take many many photos of my child. I'm not sure if it's a love of photography, being a blogger or just being a parent (or all three) that makes me want to capture all these moments but capture then I do. I've been trying lately to make sure that I get in some of these photos too so that in times to come Wilf will have these memories to look back on.
Many of you may have seen the #melfie hashtag working it's way around social media recently, which came from the photo journaling app Lifecake. I've really loved seeing more parents faces in with their kiddos, we are so often the ones hidden behind the camera.
Lifecake is designed to be a space for you to document your child by video or photograph. The app will then organised by time and date for easy access. There are of course lots of photo apps knocking around the Internet these days but Lifecake differs in that it can be used solely as place to share images of your family with family members or friends. Viewing is by invitation only which I love, sometimes there are images I wouldn't maybe want everyone on my FB to see (if only so they don't get bored with tons and tons of baby photos!). As a blogger I am quite select with the photography I use but there are moments captured that I know my family would love to see regardless of quality.
The other benefit of using Lifecake is that you can create high quality photo books within minutes. Not printing out photos is something I feel constantly guilty about but collating all the images I want to use seems like a mammoth task most days. I love the idea that you can upload all the images you want and can keep them on there for easy access and without cluttering up your laptop!
I've been using the app for a week now and am surprised how easy it was to remember to upload at least one picture of us a day. I love that I now have a full week to look back on all the fun times we had. Wouldn't it be amazing if you could keep that up for a whole year? The app itself is free for you to add up to 500 photos although you can upgrade for £2 a month to a VIP account which gives you enough space for 50,000 photos.
If you played along with the #melfie why not give a week of 'mum selfies' a go with #melfie7??
