We love our children, we shower them with affection, gifts and encouragement and we watch them from their first baby steps until they are grown. After all, we are their parents.

But many times we forget to record all of those important first events – the first steps, the first birthday, the first day at school and so much more. Later, after they leave the nest, we feel empty and lonely.

Solve The Problem

One way we can solve this problem is to get ourselves a starter digital slr camera and begin taking photographs from the moment of birth until they leave home and beyond.

What? You think this is too difficult? Well, with just a little information you can learn to take great photographs with your new camera and capture those great images that will refresh your memory and ease your loss.


One of the most important considerations when taking photographs is light. There are two main times when you need to be concerned about lighting – when you are taking photographs indoors and when you are taking photographs outdoors.

Indoors you will want to have a flash unit than can be adjusted. The reason is that to eliminate that “dark hole” that appears behind your subject when you have the flash aimed directly at them you need to bounce light off the ceiling and illuminate their surroundings. This will also eliminate the issue of “red eye”.

Outdoors you can pick an overcast day which is ideal to eliminate shadows on your subjects face. For a bright sunny day outside the flash unit comes to the rescue. Using fill flash will help reduce or eliminate those shadows that appear on one side or the other of your subjects face.


Using the simple “rule of thirds” will help you position the main object of your picture appropriately. It states:

Divide the frame equally using two horizontal and two vertical lines. Position the main focus of your image anywhere on the horizontal lines or where they intersect with the vertical lines. Avoid the center and the corners.

There is no way to determine exactly where or when the “baby shower” originated. There are several theories on baby shower history, but none can be proven. No matter where and when baby showers were first introduced, today they are a very special event celebrating a new life.

Some historians have found evidence of baby showers, or something similar, quite some time ago. These discoveries lead experts to believe that celebrating birth started in ancient cultures, like those in the Egyptian and Roman times. No definitive proof is available, but historians have deciphered data which could mean baby showers took place.

When you look at baby showers from long ago, you see that most of the gifts given to the family were handmade. Articles of clothing, blankets, and even food items were provided as gifts for the new family. Showers in the past occurred after the birth of the child, so many times part of the “baby shower” was the viewing of the new child.

The “baby shower” as we celebrate it today began after World War II. Family and friends gather together, in a party atmosphere, to celebrate the birth of a new baby. At the start, only woman were invited to attend such a gathering, but today these celebrations can include the father, grandfathers, and any male family members.

In recent years, the baby shower has started to occur before the actual birth of the child. With the new technology that is available to expectant parents, the gender of the child is not so much a mystery. Therefore, a baby shower can be thrown early in preparation for the baby’s arrival without the worry of buying the wrong thing.

No matter what the baby shower history is, the baby shower of today is a supportive and generous event toward new or expectant parents. With all the current trends toward “unisex” items, it is hard to buy the wrong thing!
