Christmas Gift Ideas (Winnipeg Photographers)

Leave a comment

Dec. 6th, 2019

Only 19 days until Christmas.

Are there people on your list that are hard to buy for? Do you end up getting socks and sweaters for them or a gift card to their favorite restaurant or store. If so, I have some ideas for the perfect gift.

How about a gift certificate for a photography session that your special person might not be able to afford or think of.

These can be made out for any amount and would be personalized just for you. I can also have them printed and mounted for you for an extra special presentation.

Another idea is to have some old pictures restored. It’s amazing what can be done in Photoshop with images from a time long ago. Have a look at these images that I restored.

You could send me a digital copy or a print for me to and I would give you an estimate for how much it would cost to restore.

Still need ideas? There are endless possibilities for what can be done with an image; including wall art, albums or trinkets. I would be happy to meet with you to brainstorm what would work best.

Christmas is just over a month away and everyone is starting to think about buying the perfect Christmas present for their loved ones.

What is the perfect gift anyway?

I think it is a present that the receiver can use and treasure for years to come. It’s often hard to think of what that could be. We know that after Christmas many people are busy returning presents that don’t fit or aren’t appropriate.

I have a suggestion for making the whole thing a lot easier. Get a photography gift certificate!

A gift certificate for a photography session is one gift that is always appreciated. It is one that will be treasured for years to come and won’t be returned on Boxing Day. It not only creates memories but keeps them.

If you’ve already had a photography session this year, then why not buy one of a number of different photo products that are available. Some of them are listed below but this list is not exclusive.

Let me know if you have some pictures that you would like to use for photo gifts but need your galleries relisted. I can do that for you.

It’s very easy to order a photo gift from my website. Let me know if you need any help or if you would like your gallery relisted. Then just pick your image, your product and pay for it. In no time at all, it will be delivered right to your door!

Here are a few of the photo products:

The Perfect Christmas Present! (Winnipeg Photographers)

Do you like to shop? I do but I don’t like crowds and I hate driving in bumper to bumper traffic. I get hot and impatient when waiting in lines or when I can’t find what I’m looking for. I had to ask 2 clerks at Superstore today before someone found the stuffing mix for me. It makes me crazy.  For me the perfect way to shop is online. I love buying things from the comfort of my livingroom and having someone bring it to my door. There is someone magical about getting packages in the mail.

Gift certificates also make great gifts ideas. Last year I bought my boyfriend a gift certificate for Thermea and we enjoyed a lovely day at the spa. Another time, I bought tickets for the Prairie Dog Central. That was a huge hit! I think buying someone an experience that you can share with them is a perfect gift.

Having said all that, why not a gift certificate for a photo session? I can personalize one for you and send it to you by email. You can pay me with Paypal or Interact bank transfer and never leave the comfort of your home. And what a great gift for a young family who might otherwise not prioritize spending money on a session. I’ve sold quite a few of them and I know they are always appreciated.

Send me an email with your details and I can get one to you asap! It’s that easy!

What do you buy everyone on your Christmas list? Do you get them socks and sweater and torques and scarves?  Material things that can be returned in case the person doesn’t like the gift. It really is a bizarre concept. We all rush about buying the perfect gift for people and then right after Christmas the department stores need to restrict returns because it is so busy and there are so many gifts returned. What a waste of energy for everyone!

I know we all want to have presents under the tree and things to open on Christmas morning. It is a lovely thing to get a gift that has been carefully thought out and is  just the right thing.

I think that gift certificates can be the perfect gift. But you say, where is the gift opening? Where is the flurry of wrapping paper from all the gifts that were under the tree? Here’s what I suggest.

Buy a gift certificate for a photo shoot. Buy a picture frame. Put the gift certificate inside the frame and wrap it in pretty paper. Voila! A beautiful present and a gift that will be appreciated and remembered for years to come. Some families cannot afford a photo shoot by a professional photographer and only have family photos that have been taken by the department store in the mall, or by Great Aunt Molly. A photo session by a professional photographer will be a remembered for years to come when everyone admires the images.

I can customize the writing on your very own gift certificate. I can even buy the picture frame for you if you like. It’s an easy gift and a very considerate one. And the value is huge!

Christmas Portrait Special (Winnipeg Portrait Photography)

Christmas is just around the corner. This year I have 2 very cool new backdrops; as seen below. I put Taylor, my dog to work today to be my model. As you can see, he didn’t enjoy it but he does sit still. Mostly that’s because I had him up high and he’s afraid to jump. I don’t ask much of him so didn’t feel too guilty.

This Christmas special includes a 20 minute session and one digital image (of your choice)  that will be emailed  to you. You can then use the image in your Christmas cards. There are tons of templates for cards on the Internet, so you’ll be all set. All this for only $69.00. I am trying to limit this special to Saturdays in November but if Saturday doesn’t work out for you, we can do it on a different day. You will be limited to one backdrop, so pick stars, balls, or black.

In order to get your images to you by Christmas, all sessions need to be done by Dec. 9th. Please note, this special is for November only and does not include any children under a year of age.

Pets are welcome even if they are less than a year old! Hopefully, they will look happier than Taylor.

Are you finished your Christmas shopping.?  How about a gift certificate for that hard to buy for person on your list?  For a limited time I am offering gift certificates at a 25% savings, which means that a $100 gift certificate will only cost you $75.00. I think it’s the perfect gift for anyone who has children and may not want to spend the money on a photo shoot.

Give me a call if you are interested. This special is available until Christmas.


Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays everyone. That’s Taylor, the sweetest dog ever. He almost doesn’t look real in the picture. That’s how beautiful he really is.

Last minute gift idea. How about a gift certificate? Call me at 669-0498 or email me at chrismcwilliams@shaw.ca. I’m sure that I can get one to you in time for Christmas. And if you’re wondering what they look like,  I have one right here. Great gift idea for anyone, especially if they have children or are expecting a baby.

I did an extended family picture yesterday and am shooting an engagement pic tomorrow. Unfortunately, since I am under the weather, things are moving more slowly here. I’ll share a few once I have some done.

Till next time.
