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

Screen Shot 2014-04-25 at 08.45.36

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.

Lifecake and the Heartbleed Bug

We take your privacy and the safety of your photos and videos very seriously indeed. So if you were wondering how Lifecake was affected by the Heartbleed OpenSSL bug we wanted to give you an update. In short, everything is fixed and there is no sign of intrusion on our platform.

Immediately after the issue was made public, we updated our systems to ensure you face no risk. There is no sign that Lifecake security was jeopardized but, as an extra precaution, our advice is to reset your passwords for all your online services. You can do this most easily for Lifecake on the web at a computer at

Let’s put Mums back in the picture this Mother’s Day 2014

As a mum sometimes I look back on a lovely weekend’s photos and wonder to myself “Was I even there?!” I am not in a single shot. Or rather, I am in one, which is so bad it’s quickly deleted.  As the main photographers, Mums often get left out of the picture and at Lifecake we’d like to change that. Continue reading
