Do You Take a Lot of Photos of Your Kids? Some Amazing Statistics for Mother’s Day!
MiMedia Inc., just published the results of a recent survey that explored how parents snap, shoot, share and store photos and videos of their beloved children ages 0 – 3. This next-generation personal cloud platform posed questions to 1,000 parents nationwide about their digital habits and lifestyles, investigating how much storage space baby photos and videos take up on their devices.
I bet some of the results of the study will amaze even the most prolific photographers!
Here Are Some of the Key Findings.
- 76% of parents admit to running out of storage on their phones from taking too many photos/videos of their kids
- 71% think Moms take more photos of their kids than Dads
- Nearly 3 out of 5 parents (58%) say their child (age 0-3) was able to operate a touchscreen digital device by swiping before they learned to speak
- 57% think Moms share too many baby photos on social media (Facebook, Instagram, etc.)
- Almost half (47%) of parents say their child (age 0-3) likes taking selfies
- 47% of parents share at least 1 photo/video on average of their child (age 0-3) per day, whereas 34% don’t share any
- 1 out of 3 parents (34% ) takes 1 video on average of their child (age 0-3) per day, whereas 13% of parents take 5+ videos on average of their child (age 0-3) per day
- 28% take 2 photos on average of their child (age 0-3) per day
- Almost 1 out of 3 parents (28%) admits to taking substantially more photos of their first born than other children
- 22% of parents take 5+ photos on average of their child (age 0-3) per day
For those not familiar with MiMedia, it is a next-generation personal cloud. They offer consumers a “rich and engaging experience plus powerful tools to curate, personalize and (re)discover your digital memories. MiMedia is NYC made, with people passionate about changing consumers’ digital lives for the better”.
As a divorce lawyer who personally feels that there is generally way too much exposure of children online, I was interested in a feature that they offer called “MiDrives” which allow for personal media to be kept securely and shared privately among invited family and friends.

Happy Mother’s Day!…And Don’t Forget To Take Great Photos of Your Kids!
All this technology is way beyond me, but I sure enjoy seeing photos and videos of my 3 and 4 year old grandchildren who live in Dallas, Texas. That’s a long ways, unfortunately, from Dayton, Ohio! Happy Mother’s Day to my Daughter-in-law Ashley, and to the rest of all the Mothers out there on Mother’s Day – snap away and take some great photos!
