33 Incredible Things You Can Do With Your Family Photos

Once upon a time, parents documented their kids’ firsts in words and pictures in baby books and scrapbooks that got updated as life’s big milestones got reached. Family photo albums grew thick with memories of trips, holidays, friends and relatives.

But who has time for that?

For our parents and grandparents, it was easy enough to organize, assemble and pass along a handmade book that told the story of their children’s lives in photographs. But the digital world has seriously complicated that rite of passage.

How do we best preserve the memories of our kids’ childhoods when our digital lives are scattered and ephemeral?
