Mother’s Day Gift Idea! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

Leave a comment

What do you think most mothers would most value on Mother’s Day?

Being a mother myself, I know what I think the answer to this question is. Mothers love to spend time with their children and appreciate having a visual memory of that time in the form of a professional portrait. Not something snapped with an iPhone and lost somewhere in cyberspace in a few years, but a portrait that can be displayed on the wall or on a desk.  You can make that happen for your mother.

There are 2 ways you can do this. You can purchase a gift certificate for your mom and make an appointment for a photography session at a later date, or you can plan the session in the next couple of weeks and present to your mother on Mother’s Day. I can assure you that your mom would be delighted.

For a limited time I have a Mother’s Day Special.

Here are 2 of the ads from my special. I am extending this special until Mother’s Day, so don’t delay! (Limited weekend times available.)

 

This wonderful lady died this year but I was fortunate enough to be able to photograph her family of daughters at her 90th Birthday Party. I know that this image will be treasured for years to come. And what a thrill for the mom to have family come from East and West to be at the party.

 

 

 

If you were prefer, I can print up a gift certificate and customize it for you. I can even find a frame for it if you like.

The session is still $59 with 1 8×10 or 2 5×7 prints included, as in the above offer.

Don’t delay. Mother’s Day is fast approaching.

Maternity Sessions!


Thank you to everyone who forwarded my maternity special to pregnant ladies that they knew. I photographed 6 beautiful mamas; six amazing women who were a ton of fun to work with. Some came with an older child, one came with her husband and 2 came with their dogs. I accomplished my goal of adding to my portfolio, trying some new ideas  and using the maternity gowns that I had purchased.
Here are a few of my maternity images:

Mother’s Day Special

___________________________________________________
I know that a lot of moms take pictures of their children, but often they are not in the pictures. I took a lot of pictures of my children when they were little, but I don’t have many that I’m in.

If you are a mother, this is the perfect offer for you to take advantage of.  Use it to book a session for yourself and your children. Or just for yourself.

This is a limited time special and is only available for the week starting on Saturday, April 14th. We will do the sessions in my studio or at an outdoor location.

This special can also be purchased as a gift for your mother and used at a later date. I can customize a gift certificate for you. Just send me the details and I can get that ready for you.

Please pass this special on to anyone that you think might be interested. You can email me at chrismcwilliamsphotography@gmail.com, or you can call or text me at 204-962.3424.

Hope to hear from you!



Raising a Reader


As many of you know, I was a teacher for many years. I taught grades 1 to 4 for over 30 years. One of the joys of teaching children in the early years is watching them grow as readers. Any grade 1 teacher can tell you how magical it is when a child starts to read.

There are many things that a parent can do to ensure that their child becomes a reader.

  • The single most important thing you can do is read to your child from the time they are very small. Make it an enjoyable experience and your child will associate reading with pleasure.
  • Have books around  house. Make sure you have books in a variety of genres; including fiction and non fiction.
  • Be a reader yourself. Children model behaviour; so make sure that they see you relaxing with a book.

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s reading. I would be happy to help you.
