Family memories captured with YesVideo

Life is all about memories, right? We take photos and videos, we write journals and make scrapbooks, and we sit and reminisce and tell stories. I’ve talked a lot about YesVideo here on my blog because I love their memory-making services. They take photographs and video (tapes, files, etc.) and convert them to digital files and DVD, allowing you to watch and share anywhere!

My family has used their services many times with old VHS tapes. We don’t even own a VHS player anymore and some tapes were unplayable anyway.

The NEW YesVideo iPhone App!

~This post was written in a partnership with YesVideo. All opinions are my own!

Our family has preserved many memories through YesVideo’s video transfer services so I’m sure you’ve seen me talk about them before! We still have a stack to send to YesVideo and do a little at a time. They’re mainly VHS tapes from when my brother and I were little and it’s so fun to see those moments now that I have my own little ones–and to see our childhood dog and Grandpa again 🙂

I’m thrilled that

newborn baby photos: what’s perfect?

Newborn baby photos are the most precious things on the entire planet. You can’t look at one without an “awWWWWWWWWwwwWW!” escaping your mouth and your ovaries twining a bit for another squishy pink cheeked babe of your own. With the capabilities of the internet and new social sites like pinterest it’s impossible not to see the cutest baby photos ever. I think it’s a contest…. how can we make the CUTEST PHOTO EVER? How can we spread MORE BABY FEVER?! What else can we put this baby in?! We’ve tried a wagon…. a bucket…

Memories: the every day moments

At what age did you form your first memory? Or what types of things do you clearly remember from your childhood? I know memories start forming around age 3, which is how old our son Ryan is… and why I sat up thinking about this while nursing Rebecca at 3am last night (I can’t believe I actually still remembered it this morning, haha).

I know some people know exactly what their “first” memory is… it’s usually something either really amazing or really terrible. I have no idea what my first memory is, I don’t

Me at 6 years old: YesVideo transfer services with CVS

I love watching our old family videos. I’m sure there was a time I found them boring (or embarrassing, ha), but now I love them… I see my own kids in my brother and me; Ryan especially looks like my brother Jeff when he was little. However, all our old family videos are on VHS! Eeek. We don’t have a VHS player at all, but my parents still do… probably just for this very reason! But they only worsen in quality over the years and my mom is making an effort to

A photography plan for beginners

I’m not so much writing this post for others to use as a guide as I am writing it for myself. I mean, I AM the beginner in this story, so bear with me. I impulsively purchased a DSLR camera 2.5 years ago… I had been researching them and really wanted one… and then one of my best friends was getting married and I walked into a local camera shop the day of the wedding and I said “that one. I want it. Now.”

My Nikon D5000. AKA My Baby.
