Photos are the static representation of a moment that matters.

Videos are the moment, fully captivating with sound and movement.

The Live Portrait app is something in between. They’re the normal photos you take and print, but they come alive with an embedded video clip that will always be there when you feel like remembering the moment.

Specifically, our mobile app enables photographers, publishers, and content creators to use their traditional printed images as a key to 'unlock' a video to create a more engaging experience.

In today’s digital smartphone world, if the photo is important enough to print, the video clip, which we call ‘a story in every picture’ is equally important.


• Take Live Portraits at the same time you’re taking photos using your existing equipment and current operating workflow. Every photo you take can become a Live Portrait.
• Live Portraits are only viewable by customers who purchase your photos. Our subscription based pricing model gives you control of the initial sale and future subscription income.

How the App Works:

The magic happens when our software analyzes the printed image by creating a mathematical model based on shapes, lines, proportions, colors and other elements. It then matches the model against images already in Live Portrait's database. When a match is found what you see is what looks like a 3D, mapped digital video playing on top of a print…living in the physical world.

Please note that our app scanner ONLY works with printed pictures that have Live Portrait videos enabled.

Ratings and Reviews

My clients LOVE their Christmas Card


I did a Live Portrait Christmas card for one of my clients. They sent me the video and I designed the template for the card and Lp did the rest! My clients keep texting me letting me know their friends and families reactions..they love it! I got another text a few minutes ago so I had to write this review on Christmas to let Live Portrait know how grateful I am to be able to offer something totally different than the photographers around me. Some days I want to go and let them know about your service but I still wanna be the only one for now to offer this in my area so maybe a different time :) Thank you and happy holidays!



This is such a cool new technology. (Well new to this industry I guess.) I can't believe it is available to photographers.

The app itself is simple. Click "Get" and see for yourself!

For photographers, if you shoot video or are considering it, sign up. It is AWESOME!!!! I got approved, went out and took video of my kids along with portraits, uploaded according to the instructions, and the pairing was ready the next morning. Next step, printing at my lab and showing it off!

The customer service is quick, helpful, and receptive to ideas (of which they have already thought and are already developing or told me ideas.)

For personal use (like if you are not going to offer this to clients), each live portrait is expensive I guess but, I am excited to offer this to clients as an add on item. Everyone will want and need it. To get the word out, I am going to use it for Valentines, new business cards, as well as updating my wall with all Live Portraits!

Freaking awesome


When I first got the order form to purchase my sons school picture, I saw the live portrait option. I thought I was going to get a video file along with his pictures... Little did I know the video was INSIDE the pictures I ordered. This is the coolest picture my family has ever seen. I am very happy to have this video picture framed in our house. I scan it almost everyday and it puts a smile on my face. :)
