Give Gift Certificates for Mother’s Day!

Give a Gift Certificate

A gift for Mum

Mum, because of you, I know kindness.

‘Twas her thinking of others,

 made you think of her.

Mother's Day

Mums.  Givers of life and so much more.  Mother’s Day is your Mum’s day to be celebrated for just what she means to you.  Her boundless love and support.  It’s a chance for us to share the love! On her special day, give a Gift Certificate towards a photo session or beautiful artwork – photographs are a gift she’ll treasure forever.  She can be in them, or not…

The introduction of our beautifully presented fine art Gift Certificates could not have come at a better time.  Give Mum a Gift Certificate for Mother’s Day, and she will thank you every time she looks at her beautiful photographs.

Most Mums typically shy away from being infront of the camera (or iPhone !!), preferring to let others be in the limelight.  What if I told you I could have Mum relishing every fun-loving second of being photographed?

I could make her feel at ease and confident infront of my camera?

She can have the most beautiful photograph of herself or her family that she’s ever experienced?  All the while being pampered and indulged, and then holding exquisite fine art portraits in her hands.  Portraits that those hands will eventually pass down the generations.  To her children, her grandchildren, her great-grandchildren.

Mother Mum

Such is the power of the printed photograph.  Your images will travel farther than you think.

And Mums, what a wonderful legacy those photos will be to have in your family.  One day your children will look for them.

Gift Certificates – give someone you love the gift of a photoshoot or photographic art.

Gift Certificates Immediately Downloadable to Use As She Likes

SQP Gift Certificates start from $100, and besides being gorgeous in & of themselves, they’re just the spark to get the ball rolling and celebrate Mum in images.

You can join with others, and combine several gift vouchers for her to get her started, or build on, or gift a full ultimate package.  There are options to suit everyone.  All Gift Certificates look beautiful and are available to immediately download, but if ordered ahead of time, a beautifully packaged Gift Certificate that hints at the wonderful experience and photos to come will be snail-mailed.

Gift Certificates are valid for use within the coming 12 months from date of purchase, so there’s no pressure for Mum to decide on when to be photographed right away.  That adds to the excitement of receiving such a wonderful Gift Certificate towards both a photo session experience and luxe printed photographic products available only to professional photographers.  There are also no limits on the type of session and products available with a Gift Certificate – you are free to choose what you absolutely love!  She may want to be photographed a la ‘Portrait of A Lady’  in studio, or with others – like her own Mum, her children, or grandchildren. Her girlfriends.  And present her photos in a beautiful wall portrait, album, or Folio Box.

So what are you waiting for?  Give Gift Certificates for Mother’s Day. Let Mum know how loved she truly is.  Motherhood at every stage and in every guise, is something to celebrate!

Newborn Baby Photography – Remember When….

Newborn Baby Photography has a small window of opportunity, but the benefits of a professional photography session last many lifetimes.

Newborn babies grow so fast.  From day-to-day they change before your very eyes.  Although babies are beautiful photographed at any age, – photographing newborns to capture them in their curly, just-born newness is best within the first couple of weeks of life.  Professional newborn baby photography is an art and skill in itself, and a qualified professional photographer that specialises in newborn baby photography should be your first consideration.

Having beautiful photographs from your baby’s first weeks are priceless.  These photos will be passed down from generation to generation.  Start your new family heirlooms.

Here are some more gorgeous images celebrating the arrival of little cherub Layla.

It was such a gorgeous moment when she sensed her Mumma beside her and turned her little head to snuggle in.

Maternity Photography & Pregnancy Belly Cast

During her beautiful Mumma’s maternity photo session, Suzie from The Art Garage was on hand to make a belly cast with the mum-&-dad-to-be’s hands gently enveloping the baby belly.

Suzie paints & decorates the casts, but in this case we chose to leave it organic & egg shell & cocoon like. Beautifully suited to my hand felted wraps & the natural elements inspired maternity shoot.  SQP photographed an amazing water pool shoot which you can see here.

There is no more wonderful & original a ‘prop’ for the newborn session than to have your little one once again cocooned & cradled in the belly cast.

These awe-inspiring little newborns  grow so fast & once you have them in your arms, trying to imagine them as they were in a belly seems almost impossible.

At almost 4 weeks old, little Layla Annabelle has already grown & changed so much.  Remember When…

The Beauty & Awe of a Newborn Baby Photography Session

This adorable bundle is the newly arrived baby Layla – what an honour, a pleasure, and an absolute joy to spend time capturing this little sweetheart’s newborn baby photography session.

Such a content & responsive little bundle, it was so truly awe-some to design a session celebrating the arrival of this gorgeous girl.  The wall art of her as a newborn together with photos from her Mum’s maternity session are going to tell such a beautiful story.  Maternity and newborn baby photography packages are the perfect way to tell your precious bundle’s first story.

As a nod to her mummy’s maternity photo session, Layla’s debut called for all things flora &  hues of pink!
