Happy Memories

Press releaseThe first year of your baby’s life is one of the most exciting – and fast moving. It only seems like yesterday that my youngest was born, all spindly limbs, scrunched up face and deliciously-smelling head. Seven months on and he’s a little chubster feasting on an array of purees, rolling around on his mat and kicking out his legs threatening to commando crawl. Before I know it it’ll be Christmas, he’ll be one year old and I’ll be thinking ‘wow’, that went fast. Obviously we’ve taken photos (ok not quite so many as with our first-born, poor no. 3), but still, there are a lot of pics. A lot of pics and a lot of plans to get them printed, but let’s face it making it to Boots with a memory stick of images to download is pretty low on the desperate ‘must do today’ list. Which is kind of what Angus Piggott and Alice Cowen, the founders of First Take Baby thought after having their first baby Indigo.

Because of the sheer volume of videos and pictures from their various cameras and phones that Angus (a professional photographer) and Alice (a personal trainer) had, they realised that rather than let them sit unseen gathering dust, the best thing to do was to make a 5-10 minute montage of it all – a kind of baby’s best bits, if you will. The result – a gorgeous video set to music ( you can see it here) charted Indigo’s life from his first moments through to his first birthday and was loved by everyone who saw it. Asked by friends and family to help them do the same, the idea for First Take Baby was born. The videos have proved so popular and are so sweet, that it’s almost worth having a baby just to make one…
