While PICTURES have the ability to capture moments in time like nothing else can, VIDEOS have the ability to bring those moments to life.
Hearing the voices of your loved ones and seeing their personalities shine through the screen is absolutely priceless!
Lucky for us we don't have to lug around old camcorders or be home to watch videos from our VCR because today's technology has made it all possible right from the palm of our hand!
We can record any moment, at any point in time without even having to think about it! We can record one minute, ten minutes or even an entire day!
And storage? Forget about it! All those videos get tucked away right on your phone so you can access them whenever you want!
So while I usually stick to sharing tips about pics, here are a few things to think about when it comes to your videos.
Find and watch your videos!
This can be a time sucker, but I promise you will laugh, cry and be filled with so much emotion you'll wonder why you don't do this regularly!
Open Apple Photos
Click "Albums" from the menu at the bottom of your screen
Scroll down to "Media Types"
Click on "Videos"
Open Google Photos
Click "Search" from the menu at the bottom of your screen
Type "Videos" in the search box at the top of your screen!
Take a video or two a week!
Take them of everyday things with your kids and grandkids, friends and family. Someday you will look back and be filled with joy as you watch all these moments you have frozen in time!
Ask your loved ones who are aging to share old stories.
Record them. You will love having their voice and stories to share someday when they're gone.
Make sure your videos are backed up in the cloud, on your computer or a hard drive before they go missing! You cannot get back these precious moments in time!
I hope you are having a great October... which is already halfway over!
All the best,
