Offer photographs as Christmas gifts? Why not! The gift of a photography session offers enduring memories to the people we love.
These days, we all have small digital cameras that allow us to take successful photographs. However, if you want really good quality photos that are carefully choreographed with perfect lighting, you are much better off making an appointment with a professional portrait photographer.
The magic of photography
Look in the phone book or local newspaper to find a professional photographer in your area. You can then obtain more information by phoning or visiting the photographer’s studio. Explain exactly what you would like and the photographer will be able to give you the type of photograph you want by creating an atmosphere conducive to the magic of photography.
With family or friends
If you would like to organize a photography session with the whole family, take advantage of family reunions at Christmastime: Everyone will be there, even those who live far away! If you have a large family, some photographers will accept appointments on Christmas Eve, Boxing Day or even on Christmas Day. You could also organize a photography session for you and your loved one — so romantic at this time of year!
Cards and gift certificates
It is also possible to have thematic photographs taken before Christmas, with accessories like a Santa Claus hat or various Christmas decorations and then use these photographs to create unique greetings cards! A gift-certificate from a photographic studio can be purchased as a gift, allowing the receiver to be photographed whenever it’s convenient for them.
