“Lifecake is perfect for new parents who are struggling under the weight of newly captured images and videos”

Last week Alice from More Than Toast reviewed Lifecake and wrote about storing photographs of her children at Easter. She said:

Lifecake is perfect for new parents who are struggling under the weight of newly captured images and videos (I’ve got that tshirt) with little time to spend hours sending umpteen updates to family. It’s fully grandparent-tested and approved (sooo simple to use!) and is the perfect solution to keeping up to date with a child’s progress in a private space. You can add as many children as you need, tagging them in each photo, and can use their photos together or separately. It’s a fabulous way for parents to keep up to date with their children when they spend time with childminders but my favourite way of using the service is to snap and store Elfie’s artwork – no more guilt over slyly popping the 87th picture of an octopus in the recycling.

Mum of one (and one on the way!) My Mills Baby reviewed us soon after our launch date and she said:

Perhaps my favourite thing about photo-sharing with Lifecake is that it’s a closed environment. Unlike social network sharing sites, advertisers cannot access data and target campaigns at you and associated friends, family and communities. This means your family have a clean and spam-free viewing experience…

Customer story: Jo Bradford, photographer and mum to Grace

We asked Lifecake enthusiast and photographer, Jo Bradford to tell us about the way she and her family use Lifecake. Jo’s been a pro photographer for 15 years and exhibits across the world, so she knows a thing or two about sharing photos. (You can see her work at www.JoBradford.com and www.GreenIslandStudios.co.uk)

“My daughter Grace was born 10 months ago, in Exeter. We had waited rather a long time for her and so there was great excitement when she finally arrived. Despite our excitement my husband and I decided we wanted to avoid being “over-sharers” and inundating everyone we knew on Facebook with photos of Grace.”

“I use Flickr for many of my commercial photos for Getty Images so it didn’t seem like the right place for more private photos of Grace. When my husband heard about Lifecake we were thrilled. It meant we could share photos privately, even with family and friends abroad in South Africa and Spain.”

“I did a batch upload of photos from my computer to get started using the uploader app. I watched as the photos were dropped into date order and organized in front of my eyes onto my timeline. Then I just added some captions and stories and it was ready to share. I love that I have absolute control over who can see these photos. We’ve invited our parents, best friends and Grace’s godparents to share her Lifecake.”

“We recently had an early Christmas celebration for family home from abroad. Lifecake played a central part in our celebrations because everyone could add the photos they were taking. If one person was left out of a photo there would be a rush to get them into another so they could appear on the Lifecake and so appear in the record of Grace’s first Christmas. It’s great that everyone can contribute both comments and photos. It’s been like building a community with contributions from everyone. “
