Oh no – that can’t possibly be the date – are you sure it’s August?
July has flown by for us here at GT Studios and has probably been one of our busiest months ever – far too much to mention in one newsletter!
We are so grateful to all our wonderful new clients and the support we have had from their families as well as the amazing support we continue to receive from our Ambassadors and their families, our followers on Instagram and Facebook and the many Accounts and Pages that have featured our photos over the last month. The feedback and comments we have received lately have reassured us that we do what we do for all the right reasons. We love what we do – and when your work is your passion it really doesn’t feel like work!
Nothing is worse than missing an opportunity that could have changed your life – we have received some heart-warming feedback this month about the changes we have helped make in the lives of some young people – perhaps we can change the life of someone you love too! Building self confidence and self esteem is so important in today’s society. Our beautiful Teegan art work (our top feature image on our snapshot) is a huge 75cmx100cm frameless matte art image and has had such an impact on our clients as they enter the studio that people are telling us that they are actually dreaming about it! That is the effect that large scale wall art can have on people and why we urge our clients to have their beautiful work printed and go as big as their space permits – this action is a lasting statement of loyalty love and commitment to their child.
As always we welcome you to the GT Studios Monthly Snapshot. A chance to keep all of our wonderful GT Studios People – clients, models, collaborators, and friends up to date with the latest news and happenings. By the way – what do you think of the new lay-out? We seem to have lost our galleries – but hopefully by our August Snapshot we will have them back!
- The Face of July – Winter
For our Face of July we felt it was appropriate that we celebrated winter – even if I don’t really like winter! I was surprised at the amount of applications – who knew winter would be popular!
We chose Mackenzie as our winner this month. She presented an amazing application – she answered all the questions that I asked. She gave enough detail without going overboard. She was believable and sincere.
Her original plan was to have a friend with her but due to circumstances beyond her control she attended the photo shoot without her friend. As teen and tween portrait photographers we were fine with this as we were able to give Mackenzie the attention that we would give our usual clients. We planned the session in detail and captured many aspects of winter – we even managed to incorporate some snow, Christmas and hot chocolate!
When Mackenzie returned for her Reveal and Select session we asked if she would do us a favour and do another little mini session as I had been able to find some beautiful red berries for a winter head piece. She jumped at the chance! She showed such enthusiasm and worked so well that we asked her to stay a bit longer and do some model work for us that evening. By the end of the night we were pretty sure we wanted to invite her to become part of the team! After a chat with the other ambassadors we were delighted to contact Mackenzie and now we are very excited to say that she is our 7th official GT Studios Ambassador. In the months ahead we will introduce you to each of our ambassadors.
We have already showcased images for July on Instagram but these are just a few in case you missed them! You can follow us on Instagram at www.instagram.com/gtstudiosphotography
On the topic of Christmas – did you know it is less than 5 months until the big day!!!! It is never too early to start planning your Christmas Gift List or that Christmas card list either.
At GT Studios we believe that receiving a beautiful personalised Christmas card is so much nicer than an sms or digital greeting – it shows you have put in some thought and effort. We also believe that customised wall art or a carefully planned album is one of the nicest gifts you can give to someone who holds a special place in your heart. Have you thought about a gift from GT Studios – it might be for a parent, grandparent, or child. We also offer gift certificates so if you know someone who would jump at the chance of one of our photo experiences then a Gift Certificate is the perfect option. We will be there on every step of the journey – whether it is to plan a photo experience or plan an album or choose which photo to place on your wall. Let us help you this Christmas! Don’t leave it too late to order – quality takes time!
If you have had a photo experience with GT Studios now is the time to have a look at your proof sheets and choose which of those beautiful photos you will choose as your Christmas Gifts and cards this year. Of course we are happy to help you choose – just call and we can discuss your images with you. If you have misplaced your proof sheets give me a call and we can arrange replacements.
If you need a new photo experience for your Christmas Photos your experience must be before the end of October to ensure delivery for Christmas! August is now fully booked.
- Magazines Arrived
As I mentioned last month – we had some of our beautiful girls featured in Issue 10 and Issue 11 of Madison Fashion Magazine. Our copies arrived in the mail and of course it turned in to another mini photo shoot! We even had a live session on Instagram! Did you see us live? It was lots of fun!
- Photo Experiences
July has been a month full of variety and creativity when it comes to our photo experiences. As well as our Face of the Month for July which had a winter theme we had the Face of August which we did the photo session for during July. We met two delightful young girls who showcased their favourite eras of fashion ‘70’s, 80’s, and 90’s! We also had the beautiful Miss M take part in the “Model for a Day” experience and Miss A came to update her model portfolio.
We were treated to some amazing dance sessions this month with several solo and group dance experiences as well as a Family photo experience and a Fine Art Experience with a Fantasy feel.
The weather was glorious for Emi’s portfolio update and we captured some awesome moments! We missed out on using the dress she ordered as it had not arrived so when she came back for her reveal and select session we did a mini photo experience and she looked amazing. Emi was really not very well that day but she still worked like a true professional.
We also had a chance to work on a photo experience with 5 of our 7 ambassadors ….. sssshhhhh!…. I can’t tell you about that – it’s a secret – watch this space and I will tell you all about it in the next newsletter!!!
