My Top Three Childhood History Albums & Journals | California Natural Light Motherhood Photography

Do you sometimes feel like the family historian?
It me.

I find it so fascinating that we now have so much technology at our disposal to personally record and document our lives and our children’s lives.

These days your entire family history can live on your phone: a recording device you carry around with you that’s able to recall, replay, and relive a specific day 5 years ago, when you actually captured your child’s first toddles or their first time saying “mama” or “shoes” (in my case).

I myself am nostalgically sentimental to my core, so I like to keep a physical record of my children’s lives … maybe to one day give back to them, or maybe just for myself to remember the fullness of these beautiful, chaotic, and fleeting years of their childhood.

So without further ado, here is the list:

My TOP THREE Journals and Childhood History Albums

  1. Letters to You by Miriam Hathaway
    • I was gifted this book for my Baby Shower or Birthday (I don’t remember) for my firstborn daughter, Aimee and I remember crying when I opened it. It is a beautiful keepsake book of pages filled with 18 years’ worth of prompts, questions, and space to write a letter to your child for each year of their childhood. I absolutely cherish this book and imagine being able to give it to Aimee once she’s all grown up.

  2. Childhood History Journal by Promptly Journals
    • Promptly Journals has the most beautiful collections of journals. Their Childhood History Journal covers prompts from Pregnancy to 18 Years. Each phase and year of the child’s life has custom tailored prompts to ensure quick but meaningful recording, as well as space to add photographs of important Milestones.

  3. The Story of You by Artifact Uprising
    • Artifact Uprising offers a wide range of beautiful products such as archival prints and stunning layflat albums. Their Baby Book, “The Story of You” is a work of art in it of itself. It is a prompted album of just the Baby’s First Year with room for letters, photographs, and meaningful notes.


I imagine myself 40 years from now flipping through these archives and being able to transport myself back to my present “now” — heart so full of memories that it aches.

I imagine that I’ll be so glad to see myself in these photographs with my children — to see what motherhood looked like on me. To see the way that I held them, and how they held onto me.

And I’ll see how even in the everyday mess of life, that there was immense love that could never be outgrown.

So get in the picture, mama.
Remember that it’s your story that you’re recording as well.
