How Can I Find Good Music for Birth Slideshows?

We've all felt stuck at one time or another. Finding music for slideshows used to be one of our business headaches because it always seemed to take so much time. Today we are sharing a few tips that helped us save time and make this tiny, yet impactful, task MUCH easier!

Here are a few quick tips to help you find great slideshow music once and for all!


Find your favorite music websites first. Keep in mind you may opt to have a membership or to purchase songs individually.


Listen to sample music while you edit your pictures. This is a great way to kill two birds with one stone and it works great to hear the music in the background while you are looking through the images.


Purchase 3-6 songs and reuse them for multiple slideshows. You will know when you feel "done" with a song, or when a particular birth story is unique enough that you may need to continue shopping for something more unique. The point is, you don’t have to use a new song for every slideshow you create!
