Around this time looking for the perfect gift is on overdrive. Christmas gifts, Holiday gifts bring out the thoughtfulness that that a wife, husband ,mom, grandma, dad or family have for each other. A few years ago I suggested that we give a gift certificate to my in-laws for Christmas as a shared family gift. Our family was starting to have more babies,get married and grow. Time was moving so fast and so we thought it would be a good day to get together somewhere nice and make a day of it. We wanted something stress free, thoughtful and showed them how much we loved and appreciated them. We hired a good family photographer and committed to all being in town on the same weekend.
I think they were excited about it and years later we look back at those pictures and say.. ‘look how young we all were’ or ‘awww, you were just a little baby’. A few years later we did the same thing for my side of the family and every time I go over my mom’s house, looking at those pictures on her wall remind me of how we all were at that time and how our love looked at that time. Now that I have my own photography business I try encourage people to think about doing the same thing for the people they love because it really is a gift that comes from the heart and marks a point in time. Maybe it’s selfish of me because I get to witness how special Mom’s & Grandmas feel when their family brings them to me for professional memories and that kind of vibe is so contagious that I can’t help but feel the love.
As a Michigan photographer, I work hard to make sure that the love people have for each other really comes through in my photography. Let me show you a few images from Michigan families who used their gift certificates this year.
It’s not just about the women with families though. Your wife, fiance or newly engaged couple would love a token like this to show off your love for each other.
This gift was from a daughter who loved and appreciated her mom so much that she wanted to record it in a thoughtful and professional way. She gifted it during mothers day and grandma used it during one of my summer mini sessions with her daughter and grand kids.
No more stress when it comes to the perfect gift for her. Whether you are shopping for a unique, thoughtful gift for her birthday, anniversary, holiday, mothers day, baby shower gift or just because. Get her a cool gift certificate to my photography services and she’ll know you love and get her. Just contact below and I’ll take it from there.
