Christmas Portrait Gifts

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is nearly here again! The bells are jingling, the shopping has started and the sprouts are on a low-light ready for Christmas day lunch!

I don’t know about you, but I still need to get my Christmas head on and make a start on plans. The challenge for me is that the autumn is always busy at the studio and this year it felt like November was here and gone in a flash. Now I’m working hard to get all the orders ready for Christmas.

People come for portraits for so many different reasons; a new family member, a special celebration, birthdays, family get-togethers, engagements, new job, new love, because everyone needs to be on the photo or just to capture their family history. Everyone has a camera in their pocket now and photography is such a big part of all our lives. My phone is nearly full with images, mainly of our ginger cat, Angus and I’m the first to admit that I still struggle with selfies – how do you hold the phone at arms length and press the button without pulling a daft face?

The photos we have on our phones tend to stay there. When was the last time you printed a photo? The nice thing about coming to the studio for portraits is you can leave everything to me. I will capture a range of portraits using different backgrounds and you can change outfits. You can then choose your favourite portraits for yourself or for gifts for others at a relaxed viewing session and I will do the rest. I offer digital images, print options, bespoke wall art, keepsakes and portrait collections.

There’s still time to take advantage of our Christmas Portrait Offer which includes a Studio Portrait Experience and Mounted Print for just £25. The studio will be open until 23rd December so if you want to update your portraits or capture a little bit of your family history, get in touch to book in. Did you know I also sell Portrait Gifts Vouchers? With a range of fixed-price vouchers to choose from, as well as a bespoke option, there’s something for everyone from just £25, so if you are stuck for gift ideas, get in touch to order vouchers.

If you have any questions about portraits, gift vouchers or anything else, please do get in touch – here’s how:

"Philippa is so much fun to work with during photo shoots. We have two uncontrollable children and she has been able to capture their energy with the camera for some fun photos. She certainly has met our desire to have some great family pictures to gift to other relatives. This was our third session within the last 10 years excluding numerous passport photos sessions. We appreciate Philippa's patience and enthusiasm for her work! She's a creative local entrepreneur that should certainly be supported"
