about gift certificates...

Our absolute favorite gift we received from our baby registry at our shower was a gift certificate for our newborn photography session. It is truly the only gift we received that will last forever. Think about it- from the bottle warmer to the infant car seat nearly everything we received has been given or packed away. There are, of course, still a few things we still use to this day– you can read my top 5 registry picks here!

Of course, these items are necessary, but preserving your legacy is, too. I'm so glad we have our photos to pass down for future generations, and this is one main reason I offer gift certificates.

Gift certificates also make amazing gifts for our loved ones who are hard to buy for because they already have everything. I can promise you that grandma would SO cherish a gift card to a petite session with her grandchildren!

Gift certificates can be purchased for any value and used toward session or membership fees, or toward your products at your ordering appointment.


about giving back...

It is so important to me to give back, especially to our community. So, I also use my gift certificates as a way to support organizations whose missions align with my core values. I'm so excited to support two local organizations near and dear to my heart:

  • Safehome is a nonprofit organization and domestic violence shelter in Overland Park whose core purpose is to provide a healing atmosphere where those facing domestic violence can gain inner strength, explore options, and be empowered to live a life free of abuse. On September 16th, Safehome will host their signature fundraising event Hearts on Hope where you can find two gift certificates to Meredith Maag Photography to bid on at the silent auction!
  • Reach Out and Read Kansas City provides over 65,000 new, culturally and developmentally appropriate books to 26,000 low-income children, birth to age five, during well-child visits at our partner pediatric clinic sites, building a 15-book library for each child before they enter kindergarten. How amazing is that? As a former English teacher and mama, their mission is so near and dear to my heart! I joined the committee for their fall fundraiser Books on Tap and donated two gift certificates for their silent auction as well.

I am also SUPER excited to take part in @kclocalevents ladies night which is THIS Friday! I started following Brittany on Instagram before we even moved to Kansas City, and I love what she's doing to unite so many people across our city while spreading all of the local KC love! I've donated 2 petite sessions and 3 Santa mini sessions for her Ladies Night goody bags, and I'm so looking forward to the event to meet more friends in Kansas City!
