The best place for childhood photos and videos

Parents take thousands of photos and videos that have no place in public. They’re a pain to organise, share with family, and to quickly find again later. These ethereal moments mean little to others, but everything to us. They tell the story of childhood.


Messy floors, organised photos.

Unorganised, these snapshots overwhelm our phones and folders. Families deserve a simple, private, lasting place to keep, share, and relive childhood moments — across time, distance, and generations. That’s why we built Lifecake.

There’s another side to this journey…

It’s increasingly common to see families scattered across several countries and continents. But while there’s more connectivity, we’re losing out on real human connection. We just don’t see each other enough any more.

Pop a baby into the mix and the challenge intensifies. Childhood is intense and brief. No grandparent, aunt, or close friend should miss out. That, too, is why we built Lifecake.

Yes, our toddlers throw food and launch temper tantrums. Our in-laws may tsk-tsk our parenting methods. A parent’s life is a logistics operation. But I love my family, warts and all.

We love the app and so do our family and friends. It has made things really easy for us because now we both just upload here and don’t get numerous texts a day from people we know asking for more photographs. It also keeps our son’s images off social media.
*Perfect for privately sharing to friends and family* We are in love with this app! They give you a certain amount of storage for free, but we’ve used this for 4 months with photos and videos and still have 80% remaining. I’d gladly pay a fee to keep this running through the years. Our parents and relatives love getting updates throughout the week of our little one’s progress!
*Fantastic App for families* We downloaded this app and were sceptical, but it has provided our families with so much joy. We can upload photos quickly and we can leave a title and comments. Even the children’s technophobe grandparents have commented on how user friendly it is. We have paid for the extra storage and definitely think it’s worth it. Thank you Lifecake!
*Amazing!!* I love it! I have been using it since my nephew was born and love everything about it. Always fun to scroll back to him as a newborn and see how he’s grown, and the clear heading of how old he was in each photos makes it even better. Always find myself recommending it to anyone having kids as it’s a good way to keep family and friends posted without spamming them with emails or via social media.
