Christmas Gift Ideas (Winnipeg Photographers)

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.


The Perfect Christmas Gift! (Winnipeg Photographers)

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:


Desk organizer


Fridge Magnet




Playing Cards


Photo puzzles

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 is the perfect Christmas present? I’m sure that a lot of us are asking this question right now What can I give to a special someone  that will be appreciated and treasured.

I think that buying someone a gift certificate for a photography session is as perfect a gift as you can get. Many people with small children cannot afford to get a professional portrait done of their child or their family. It’s a gift that will be treasured for years to come as the receiver looks at the photos and remembers that time in their lives.

I offer gift certificates at all times, but for the next 3 weeks I’m going to offer a “Buy One, Get one Free Special.” That means, you can buy one gift certificate for $100 and get another one free.

And it’s easy too. Just send me an email at with the particulars and I can get a customized gift certificate(s) ready for you.

If you are concerned that all you are giving is an envelope, why not also buy a picture frame to wrap and put the gift certificate inside. A note could be put inside the frame that says,”Fill me with an image of ______________.”

The best part is that you get to avoid the malls to do your shopping!

Gifts for Mother’s Day (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

Leave a comment

Are you looking for a gift for your mother for Mother’s Day?

I know that as a mother, the gift that I would treasure the most is a photo of my family. Last summer, my son and his family were here from Calgary and the rest of the family came over. With the help of a tripod, I was able to get a picture of all 4 generations of my family. I love this photo and know that I will treasure it for years to come. I also managed to get one of myself with my 2 sons and my grandson. Nothing makes me happier than photographs that mark a time in my life with the people who mean the most to me.

So if you are looking for a gift for your mom, why not buy her a gift certificate for a photo session?Put  the gift certificate in a nice frame and wrap it up with pretty paper and a ribbon. I know your mother will be thrilled.

And to make it even easier for you, I have a Groupon right now that will save you some money. If you are buying the Groupon as a gift, I can print a special gift certificate for you to frame.

To purchase the Groupon, go to

Send me an email if you would like to get a special gift certificate printed and I can personalize one for your mom (at no cost to you.)

Gift Certificates: the Perfect Christmas Present (Winnipeg Children’s Photographer)

What is the perfect Christmas present?  What would someone most like to receive? I think those are questions that we ask ourselves a lot at this time of the year.

I think that buying someone who has children a gift certificate for a photo shoot is a gift that keeps on giving. It is not consumable as the pictures that the giver will receive will be treasure for years to come and help to keep those childhood memories  alive. And it’s easy too. If you are concerned that all you are giving is an envelope, why not also buy a picture frame to wrap and put the gift certificate inside. A note could be put inside the frame that says,”Fill me with an image of ______________.”

Give me a call at 962-3424 or send me an email if you would like to avoid the malls this Christmas and know someone who would appreciate a gift certificate.

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 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.
