birth registry



Birth deserves to be celebrated and remembered the way you want it to be.  Sometimes that means hiring a birth photographer.  Birth photography can be an expensive luxury, but I whole heartedly believe that everyone who wants birth photography, deserves to have it.  This is why I have set up a birth registry for the families I get to work with!  Once you sign your contract and pay your deposit, you are eligible to establish your gift registry.  This is a great way to get your friends and families to contribute towards your memories.  It is completely FREE and I will update you every time there is a donation made to your birth package.  You will also have a customized birth registry page to send to your friends and family so they can donate!

The funds paid through your registry will credit towards your custom birth package and add-on's.
