I thought I would post two more videos today of my beautiful little girl Yhana.
I am always trying to use different forms of media to record her life, and for genealogist’s that’s very important for us and we often take the preservation of our own family records very seriously.
I have no idea if these videos will stand the test of time, for a start I do use third-party material (music) in the background, That may not be a problem because some areas of this industry may just mute this music or place adverts on the videos.
I always have my camera close by to capture precious moments of her, I only have two pictures of myself as a kid (which is a shame) and yet Yhana already has many thousands, I have preserved these images in both book form, digitally and as hard copies. She also has a beautiful shipping trunk I had specially made for her which has her name, date of birth and the co-ordinates of her place of birth inscribed onto it, all of her important records, photos, a few items of clothing etc… are kept together.
All of the photograph’s that appear in these videos are my own work, Photography is a big hobby of mine and Yhana is such a beautiful little person to photograph 🙂 I’m a proud parent.
I’m also a Gay Dad and that brings its own problems (on a social level). My parenting is no different except I have to think about things both paternally and maternally and I Like to think I am very good at it.
The videos are between 5 – 7 minutes long each (my apologies) but I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed putting them together.
