A Princess For A Day

Princess For A Day

Miss E was pretty excited! She was booked in for a Princess Photo Experience – she would get to wear a Princess dress, have a floral crown and use a lace parasol as a prop too. She packed some of her own pretty dresses, hair clips and shoes and then hopped in to the car with her Mum and big brother and they made their way to the photo session location.

The location was one of our favourite parks in the Eastern Suburbs of Adelaide. It is green and leafy and the perfect spot for the images we had planned for that day.

We set up our portable change room and Miss E was soon looking amazing. The photo experience began, a little shy at first but Graham soon made her feel comfortable and relaxed. Her brother joined in with some of the photos in this session too and before long everyone was having a great time.

Unfortunately, due to excitement, Miss E did not eat much breakfast. Suddenly a cry from big brother and our Princess was fainting. That was an experience no one was expecting – however we always come prepared with nibbles and lots of water – and after some re-hydration and a snack our beautiful Princess was back on her feet again giving us the best images!

This amazing brother and sister duo went on to have a half day photo experience with some wonderful images that I will share in future blogs. If you would like more information about how GT Studios could help you plan a  Photo Experience for your little Princess please give me a call – I would love to chat to you about all the options.

Until the next time I blog, I hope you make the most of every day,

When one person asks for bubbles…..

When a Family Photo Experience starts off with the youngest member noticing my bubble machine the only way to move forward was to promise that we would use the bubble machine later in the session.

Five year old boys have amazing memories when it comes to bubbles and promises so after a lot of photos I agreed to switch on the machine!

I was pretty sure that the other family members were not all that keen on the idea of bubbles but I assured them it would be a bit of fun and they would be under no pressure to purchase these images. Just let this little boy have his moment.

As you can see from the set of bubble images everyone got  in on the act and I think they ended up being a fantastic set showing the real side of this family – natural, relaxed and fun loving.

This gorgeous family were great clients and we loved every minute of their session. We even got a bit emotional when we reviewed the images at the end of the day – that’s when we know we captured the essence of the people involved – that’s why we do what we do and why we love doing it!

Contact Karen and Graham today to arrange you free consultation.

The Great Outdoors

Graham and I are not really camping people! So, when we suggest an outdoor photo experience it is more than likely going to be with a lovely client dressed in a gorgeous outfit, and we do our best to make them them feel  super special and let nature speak for itself.

Don’t get me wrong, we love being outside in the gardens and forests and national parks that we are so lucky to have here. You just need to check out any of our holiday destinations to see that we really appreciate nature, but we really appreciate the beauty in all our clients too. We make it our task to capture life’s moments with them while they are out in the natural light. We like to give them the opportunity to wear some of the outfits we have in our collection so that it is not the clothes that they have been seen in before. We do tend to specialise in girls that like to dress in beautiful party dresses – I think that is because that is what I am comfortable with too!

Even when we have had the pleasure of meeting girls who want to be “Bad” and wear only casual jeans and look tough for their photos they still end up choosing something beautiful from the collection in the end.  I think deep down, when there is no pressure from anyone, most girls secretly want to be a Princess and get dressed up and twirl around!!

Welcome to 2017!

What a Year!

As 2016 comes to an end Graham and I would like to take this opportunity to say “Thank You” to all our wonderful clients, our family and friends, the fantastic business people that we have been involved with and all the amazing new friends that we have made this year. The support and love that we have felt has been incredible.

Hand in hand – they are on an amazing journey together.

This year has been quite the ride for us, both in our personal lives and as GT Studios. As an extended family we have dealt with illness and loss but also had the opportunity to celebrate many milestones and new life too!

Reflect on the year that was. Make a wish on the year ahead.

GT Studios was also officially given life this year and although both Graham and I have been involved with photography in some way since our teenage years it has been a real dream come true to finally make our dream a reality and make this passion of ours in to a business we can proudly call our own.

Reaching Out

As the year has progressed we have had the most amazing experiences. We have met wonderful people and have really enjoyed getting to know them.

Capturing Life’s Moments

I love this image. It was a moment captured towards the end of the day. Patiently waiting for her sisters to join her. It just goes to show that not every image has to be posed or smiling or looking at the camera!

When you join GT Studios for a photo experience we try to capture formal and informal moments. We know that every moment in life becomes a memory but some memories are worth capturing!

The real pleasure for us is when we see these wonderful moments printed and framed so that they become a part of daily life. It’s such a thrill to see an image on a clients wall in the entrance hall, lounge or other special spot welcoming guests in to their home!

If you would like to have your memories captured and then see them become beautiful works of art be sure to contact us to help plan your photo experience. Life doesn’t wait for us to make memories, life is an ongoing memory that fades over time unless we actively record it in some way. Let GT Studios capture your memories and make them in to life’s moments so that you have them for the future.

These three beautiful fairies were very brave and went barefoot in the wet grass. They managed to turn on some real fairy magic for us.

Thank You!

A big thank you to everyone who took part in our Pop-up Photo Experience in the Park last Sunday.

Despite the cold, overcast sky and drizzling rain we had an awesome time with all of you. Every single person was amazing in front of the camera and we are looking forward to sharing your beautiful collection of photos with you soon!

Our feature photo for today’s blog shows a gorgeous Fairy Family – the first photo experience of the day – it was really freezing – but they were so brave – went bare foot through the wet grass – and created some real fairy magic!!

If you missed out last Sunday contact us today for your personal photo session in the park – our next park experience will be Sunday October 16th – surely the Spring weather will be with us by then!!

Photos in the Park

I can’t believe we were so lucky with the weather on the day Mikayla and Marcus met us for their Photos in the Park experience. It was not hot by any stretch of the imagination but it did not rain. It was nice to be able to pop open our beautiful white lace parasol which beautifully complimented the fresh floral crown made especially for the occasion!

The flowers were chosen to compliment Mikayla’s complexion, eyes and hair as well as the clothes that she had chosen to wear on the day. Quite a lot of planning and preparation happens before the photo session to ensure everything looks great on the day!

I love the way these two really relaxed during the session. They look so natural and relaxed in these photos.

If you would like to have your own photo experience contact us and we will be happy to discuss some ideas with you. There are still two sessions available this Sunday, 18th of September but bookings are essential so call me on 0481 190 163 for your personal time allocation. More details here.

All Dressed Up

Mikayla and Marcus looked amazing in their formal clothes for these images. Mikayla wore a beautiful floral crown featuring Spring Blossom, Blue Delphiniums and Gypsophila which perfectly matched her gorgeous royal blue lace dress. The floral crown was handcrafted by GT Studios especially for the occasion. These floral crowns can be made to order for any of our photo experiences as an optional add-on. If you would like a floral crown for your special occasion or photo experience contact us and we will be happy to help.
