Christmas in July

Wow – I can’t believe that we are at the end of July already. We are in the middle of Winter yet I sit here with the door to the balcony wide open, the afternoon sun streaming in. A gentle breeze blowing the gum leaves outside the window and I think how lucky we are.

This year is flying by and tomorrow people will be celebrating Christmas in July! I don’t know about you but it feels like I have just finished putting away all the decorations from Christmas in December!!

Christmas in July

Do you celebrate Christmas in July or is once a year enough for you? Last Christmas we set up a Winter Wonderland scene in our studio and offered Christmas Winter Wonderland Photo Experiences. We will be doing the same again this year and to avoid disappointment we will be setting up our Christmas tree a little earlier than normal. We will encourage our clients to contact us soon to book their complimentary consultation so that we can ensure their chosen colour scheme can be accommodated and any extra little touches can be added. These sessions make excellent Christmas Card Images so the earlier you get organised with your session the easier your Christmas Card list becomes! We will also be offering formal and informal photo experiences in time for Christmas gifts.

Family photos make a lovely gift not only for Grandparents but also for you as a family. I always think of the C. S. Lewis quote

“Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back everything is different”

This is what happens with family life, day after day we do the same thing and then one day your family have grown up and moved out. Don’t leave your photo experience until it is too late!

We would love to help you organise your Christmas gift this year with some beautiful wall art that you can look at and enjoy forever. Contact me today for more details: email, Facebook pm, or call on 0481 190 163

The 12th Day of Christmas

Can you believe that it is already the 12th day of Christmas? So much has happened in the last 12 days – my head is spinning! –  and now we have to say goodbye to the festive season for another year.

Some people have already taken their decorations down – in fact they take them down ASAP – others will be doing the task today (depending on your beliefs) and others will tackle the task tomorrow. We will spend tomorrow doing just that – I love the Christmas decorations – I don’t really want to pack them away – apparently, in days gone by, if you did not take down the greenery and baubles on the 12th day of Christmas (January 5th) or Epiphany (January 6th) you had to leave them up for the whole year – Now there’s an idea!!!!

Of course, we will pack them away but hopefully it will not be for the whole year. One of our plans for 2017 will be to offer “Christmas in July Photo Experiences”. Once again we will set up our Winter Wonderland Christmas Nook with lots of Fairy Lights and Christmas Gifts and Snow and then encourage you and your loved ones to book an experience so that we can create unique Christmas greetings cards for you! We have had some fantastic feedback from those who ordered personalised greetings cards for this Christmas – your experience can be as formal or fun as you like! Contact either Karen or Graham for more details.

Christmas deliveries done!

It has been a crazy busy few weeks for GT Studios and we have finally finished our Christmas Orders.

All the Personalised Christmas cards have been delivered and hopefully they will be in the post now ready to delight the people who receive them. We love being able to create a little Christmas Magic for our clients!

Angel’s Christmas 2016 experience with GT Studios

We had the great pleasure of revealing a set of images to a beautiful family tonight. Always a nice part of the process. We love getting to know our clients and we feel that this is what helps us provide them with the images they are looking for. Capturing Life’s Moments is something we take very seriously.

Angel’s Christmas 2016 experience with GT Studios

So now it is back to mainstream photography for us. A new year is a great time to organise a photo experience – beautiful weather, the crazy, end of year rush is over – the perfect opportunity to start a new tradition, and finally get that photo you have been wanting for so long – contact Karen or Graham today to save your session – weekdays, evenings and weekends available.

How many days till Christmas?

A week in to December and Christmas seems to be heading our way quicker than ever. “How many days till Christmas?” seems to be a question being asked by many and when answered there is often a look of disbelief and shock in adults, and excitement and a touch of impatience in children.

Making a Wish!

With only three and a half weeks to go the reality is sinking in. The Christmas Card orders need to be finalised tonight and the last minute tweaking of Christmas Albums takes place this week.

A Sweet Christmas Fairy

We had the great privilege of being involved with lots of families this Christmas season – arranging photo experiences so that the images can be used as gifts for loved ones. Beautiful works of art to be placed in that special spot on the wall, amazing collections that get transformed into a masterpiece album for the coffee table and beautiful greetings cards to help spread the joy of Christmas in a truly personal way.

The Night Before Christmas

We hope you are progressing well with your Christmas planning, shopping and preparation. Don’t forget that GT Studios has Gift Certificates  – they are a beautiful gift that can be used for any of the GT Studios services – photo sessions, framed and matted prints of existing images in our portfolio or any of our personal tuition sessions and workshops. We are also available to do commissioned work. Contact Karen or Graham for details. Do you know how many days till Christmas?

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas”

During a recent Winter Wonderland Christmas Photo Experience, our beautiful clients were in the dressing room changing their outfits and it was the perfect opportunity for our GT Studios Christmas Tree to make a quick costume change too! It started the day in purple and gold but with a magical twirl it matched the next outfits perfectly.

Miss T just loved  this outfit from Little Rainbow Boutique and so do I. The minute she put it on she wanted to hold her skirt out and strike a pose! Not a bad effort for a little girl.

Big sister then put on a great show too! These images will make the most gorgeous personalised Christmas cards.

Gift certificates are also available and would make a lovely gift for someone special this year.

My first Christmas Card for the Season!

In this digital age I have noticed that less Christmas Cards are sent and received than previous years. I know that some people say this is a good thing but there is a part of me that loves getting a personal greeting in the mail.

I received my first hand delivered Christmas Card for this year on Saturday. The person giving it to me could just as easily have wished me a Merry Christmas at the Christmas Lunch we were attending but it would not have been the same.

The thoughtful words hand written in that card meant so much. It got me thinking that we should all make the effort to spend some time this year being personal. Yes – Christmas has got a bit out of hand – so lets bring it back to being thoughtful, personal and caring!

If you would like some personalised Christmas Cards this year we would love to help you do this. Book your Winter Wonderland Christmas Photo Experience and we can turn your photo in to an amazing Christmas Card that you can send to those people who need to read some caring, thoughtful words this year!
