Making Christmas Gift Giving Easy For You!

It’s that time of year when we start to make our Christmas lists. Even Santa is making a list and checking it twice! Today’s blog is about helping you with your list making and making Christmas Gift Giving easy for you!

Have you been naughty or nice?

Gifts, greetings cards, ingredients for baking – I can think of many lists that I could be writing! Are you a list maker? Are you the person who has to decide who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Making a list…..

Gifts, greetings cards, ingredients for baking - I can think of many lists that I could be writing!

Gifts, greetings cards, ingredients for baking – I can think of many lists that I could be writing!

I am not very good at those sorts of lists – I think everyone should have a lovely Christmas. I try to please everyone and usually end up feeling exhausted by the end of it and not really happy with what I have done. So, this year I am going to try really hard to be super organised – not take on too much responsibility and enjoy every moment with Family and Friends.

Surprise!

It's just what I wanted! Children and adults alike will love a framed portrait for Christmas

However, I want to help you with your Christmas gift list first. If you have had a photo experience with us this year you might like to think about using some of your images as Christmas gifts for those special people in your life. It will make your Christmas shopping a lot easier than normal! If you haven’t had a photo experience keep reading – we can still help you too!

Traditional Frame

Our Traditional Frame – Beautifully framed in a range of timbers as well as black & white, with a traditional matte surrounding the printed image.

We have some beautiful products to choose from including four beautiful styles of framing. They range from the traditional (pictured above), to elegant (pictured below) to something more romantic, and then we have a very special frame style that is just perfect for your little Princess or Fairy.

Elegant Frame

Our Elegant and Modern Frame - this has a young edgy feel - also available in a range of timbers, it comes in a deeper box style frame giving it a more substantial feel and elegant look, it does not have a traditional matte but has a wide border on the actual printed image - it will surely make a statement on your wall

We also offer a nifty little social media style set which can be kept as a set or split up to give as individual gifts. These are square and can be framed in a range of timbers. Perfect for those homes where wall space is on the tight side! They can be hung on the wall or placed on a shelf or cabinet or hallway table.

Instagram on your Wall!

Instagram - In an age of social media, what better way to display your chosen images. A set of 4 or more in your choice of timber box frame with the image set back these have a stunning effect when placed in a grid pattern on your wall. At 17cmx17cm this is a great choice where wall space is a premium!

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.
