So many parents want to preserve their family memories, especially the precious and fleeting moments of their little ones’ first years. But scrapbooks, baby albums, and photo books are time-intensive projects. Too often they get put off, and become a source of guilt over memories lost.
Shortcake makes it easier for today’s families to create custom photo books and baby albums. Their goal is to make crafting keepsakes of your family’s memories a simple and beautiful experience.
How? Shortcake gathers your memories from your photos and your social media posts (think dates, locations, status updates, and comments). Then their design team uses the details from your photos and posts to create a custom album of your baby’s first year, a special vacation, family yearbook, and more.
Founded by Coralee Dixon, a new mom who was looking for a better solution for her own daughter’s baby book, Shortcake is dedicated to fighting mommy guilt and creating beautiful, personalized products for their customers.
How it Works:
Start by connecting your Facebook/Instagram and cloud storage accounts (iCloud, Dropbox, etc.), allowing Shortcake’s design team to create a highly personalized, custom album of your family’s moments and adventures. Select your album’s template and subject, and then relax until your design is ready to proof. Send in any edit requests you have and pick from three premium-quality printing options for a keepsake your family will enjoy for years to come.

“The cool thing about Shortcake is that they combine a little bit of both the online world (comments from friends) with photos of your children.” – Clint E.
“My mother-in-law had a terrible day yesterday, but when she got home and saw the book (that had just arrived)… well. It made her day. I just about burst into tears to hear how happy it made her. Thank you for making us so happy!” – Beth F.
