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 on 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!
