Welcome to Moment Garden!
Our vision is simple. We want to help parents collect, save and (privately) share their child's moments with the people who matter most. Why? Because we want it for us too! Our goal is to make Moment Garden a self sustaining business built on a quality product. This is important because we're in it for the long haul.
Children are amazing! From day one, their pictures and the precious moments throughout their life are priceless. Looking at an old picture, or even reading a quote from when they were 4 years old and commented, "Don't worry Mommy, I'll teach you" can give you a huge smile from ear to ear.
Due to privacy concerns, popular sites such as Facebook are becoming less safe for sharing this data. With Moment Garden, we are building a place where you can feel more comfortable sharing data and not worry about what your 500 Facebook "friends" do with your child's photos and data.
Moment Garden began as an online time capsule, and that is still how some people use it. But a time capsule is something you fill up a single time and bury, only to dig up years later. We want Moment Garden to be something you can re-live everyday; a place that celebrates your child's life and keeps your family and friends updated every step of the way (pun intended).
Whether you are photographing daily activities, recording height and weight, logging those funny quotes and stories, taking weekly profile shots, or using Moment Garden in another way, we just hope you get out of it as much fun and enjoyment as we we have experienced building it.
