5 Reasons To Give The Gift of Photography
In our current life and times, living in an era of pandemic and so much uncertainty perhaps the last thing on your mind is shopping for the holidays. Trust me, I can relate! We have been at home, quarantined and not seen family in nearly 9 months so thinking of the holidays, considering plans to see family is not really in the cards this year. That said, it can make it more difficult to know what “the perfect” or “ideal gift” could possibly be this year. I do have an idea for you, something that you could do as a family or even as a couple to put a smile on your family members’ faces! You could hire me to capture your immediate family, or the two of you as a pair if you’re a couple. We could capture you, and you can give some beautifully framed photos as gifts this year, so that the grandparents can see how big their grandchildren have grown, and/or for yourselves to mark this milestone in all our lives, of being that much closer as a family – to capture that love and connection in this moment for you to be able to look back upon. Another option is to purchase a gift certificate to give as a gift for use in the future when you can all be reunited as a family! Or perhaps for a sister or dear friend who is expecting a baby in 2021? You deserve to have beautiful images of your family this year too! If you’re having trouble finding the perfect gift I’ve got you! Here are 5 reasons to give the gift of photography:
5 Reasons to Give the Gift of Photography
- Photography is a gift that lasts.
With all the trendy gadgets, fads that come and go with clothing and accessories, it’s hard to find a truly classic gift that stands the test of time. But with the fun experience of a portrait session with a professional photographer, the result is a set of artfully edited portraits that capture the most important things in life–love, family, friendship, joy, and the sweet simplicity of enjoying the moment with loved ones.
- Photography is an experience, not a thing.
Our closets and garages are packed to the brim, and every year when we do our spring cleaning we vow never to go shopping again. So why give a gift that will be enjoyed temporarily and then put away in an attic after it’s no longer being used? When you give a portrait session, you are giving an experience. One in which the recipient is the center of focus and can later see themselves in the best light.
- Every portrait session is customized!
I work closely with my clients to guide them in choosing a location and wardrobe. I like to spend some time before and during the session getting to know them so that I can capture the true essence of who they are.
- A portrait session is an original gift.
Giving the gift of a portrait session is not cheap. It’s a thoughtful, artful, original, genuine experience and results in family heirlooms that last for generations. For these reasons, it’s not something that is given or received often, but when it is, it is a gift of love.
- No wrapping required!
If you dislike wrapping gifts as much as I do, you’ll appreciate this. I have beautiful, glossy gift certificate cards that come in a nice white envelope. Ready to give!
