The Vintage Beach Experience

We don’t often do Beach Experiences but when everything comes together and you get gorgeous little girls in beautiful vintage styled dresses in a magnificent location you can guarantee some amazing wall art will be produced. This was the case on this day. We have now released the first three in this series.

The gorgeous girls were sisters, the dresses were from Dollcake, a Melbourne, Australian based company and the scenery is one of our picturesque South Australian Beaches  on the Fleurieu Peninsula.

All of our photo experiences start with a pre-session consultation. This is when we are able to come together as a team and discuss themes, colour, style, location and let your heart do the talking. As artists we understand the need to be creative.

As a Boutique Studio we want you to be completely immersed in the process. This investment is not just a photo session it is a work of art for you to cherish for a life time, it is an experience, a memory, and we want you to love every minute of the journey as much as we do.

Invite us in to your home today for a photographic journey like no other you have experienced. Call Karen or Graham today.

Behind The Scenes

I thought I would show a few behind the scenes images today. Graham is our primary photographer at GT Studios and I am there as back up/second photographer and assistant. That means that all the amazing high quality images of people have come from Graham and the candid on the spot images are sometimes mine!

At our recent beach photo experience I was able to catch a few of those moments. Not images that we would sell to our clients but images that do usually capture the moment!

I think the images I caught on this day did show the commitment of both Graham and our little ballerinas. It was windy and the waves were quite unpredictable with a rough sea. I can tell you now that all three ended up very wet that day.

A Sea Breeze

We recently had a chance to create some memories at one of South Australia’s beautiful beaches with some gorgeous little girls.

Two pretty young girls on the beach.

We knew the look we needed to capture and we had the perfect little dresses in our collection. We had recently purchased them from Dollcake and had not yet had the perfect opportunity to use them.

Paddling in the shallows

All the stars and planets aligned and we had an awesome time! Unfortunately the sea breeze was a little more than a breeze at times – but not quite a gale – it didn’t matter – in fact it gave a beautiful effect in the end. These are just a couple of images from the session. The behind the scenes images show what it was really like but that is another blog post for another day…….

Contact Karen or Graham today to book your pre-session consultation  – let’s chat about your hopes and dreams for that magic photo!

The Face Of GT Studios is Growing Up

A lot of people ask us about the little face on our GT Studios business cards, logo, Avatar, etc. They want to know who she is and how she came to be “The Face” that we chose.

Little Miss C has been a part of our lives since she was a baby. She has always been a natural in front of the camera and was always willing to look down the lens when we needed her to. We have watched her grow and change but she has always remained a sheer delight to photograph.

Her parents have been amazing in the support they have given us. Always allowing us to take up their time as we became totally immersed in one photo session after another. Over the last four years we have been lucky enough to add another two delightful little cuties from this family to our group of models that we use to promote our photography business.

We are always happy to add to our group of willing models and will be doing a model call soon to promote some of the gorgeous new outfits in the GT Studios wardrobe. If you know someone who might be interested  contact Graham or Karen today for more details.

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!!

Not long now – Christmas is nearly here! There will be some people who have been ready and organised for weeks and there will be some who are still at the shops right up to the last minute.

This year I have been better organised than usual – I need to thank our wonderful clients for that – it’s amazing what a difference it made knowing people needed their photos for Christmas cards and presents – we did not want to let anyone down!

Last minute preparations

Whether you are a “ready and organised” or a “last minute” Christmas person there is just enough time to do the glorious finishing touches to your Christmas preparations. Not long now before we can all sit back, relax and enjoy the day!

“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.

Christmas Winter Wonderland

Every Moment Counts!

On Saturday we had a couple of amazing Winter Wonderland Christmas Photo Experiences.

The three little girls featured in this set were fantastic to work worth. As you can imagine, ranging from 10 months to 4 years old, we all needed some unposed, relaxation time inbetween the more formal photos.

I think this is when Graham caught some of the most gorgeous images! It just goes to show that “Every Moment Counts!”

Presents Under the Christmas Tree

Are you ready for Christmas? Presents wrapped, cards written, Christmas tree decorated? Christmas is only four and a half weeks away so if you are not quite as organised as you planned why not let GT Studios take some of the stress and pressure from you and let you enjoy the “Festive Season”.

We have one more day available for Christmas Photo Experiences in our Winter Wonderland Christmas Nook. If you are free on Saturday the 3rd of December we would love to help make your Christmas a very special occasion by creating some beautiful personalised Christmas Greetings cards or Framed images for you to give as gifts. We still have sessions available in the morning, afternoon and evening.

The photo experience runs for 30 to 45 minutes with several Christmas props to choose from. We also have a range of children’s clothes (6 months to 12 years) which you might like to choose from or you can choose to bring your own special outfit.

The investment for you is $200 plus the cost of your order which could be as little as $2 per modern flat personalised Christmas Card or $3.50 per traditional folded personalised Christmas Card! Framed images come in a range of sizes and costs to suit your budget too. All orders will be delivered by the 18th of December.

Lots of people like a “mini-session” as their first experience with us and this could be the perfect opportunity for you.

If you would like to book a session you can contact Karen or Graham with a time that suits you and we will confirm the availability.
