Did you know it was my birthday yesterday?
Well it was my birthday yesterday and on occasions like this I don’t know about you but I always get a little reflective about the previous year gone by.
Yesterday I was thinking about all the things “I was able to do this time last year bla bla bla” and then I stopped myself in my tracks. Sitting in those moments and allowing ourselves to engage with the monkey minds serves us no purpose.
I am not a trained coach but even I have learnt these last few weeks that sometimes we have to just be a little more imaginative to have a little laughter at times and some fun.
Yesterday I received over 56 private messages so many as voice notes singing Happy Birthday to me, I haven’t even counted the cards and the beautiful thoughtful gifts but its safe to say so many people were thinking of me and wishing me so much love. I was feeling a little down on the run up to it with so much uncertainty but do you know what – it was probably one of the best, simple, quiet and surrounded by love.
I do have a point to relate this to photography if you are still with me?
Yesterday made me realise how much more we are all reaching out to each other not just at birthdays but just remembering to let others know we care.
I mean I would have loved nothing more than being able to place my “Dinner Order” to Mum and Dad and be able to head over to a feast of my favourite things but instead I had to bark instructions to my hubby instead in the kitchen to make the roast duck dinner we enjoyed!
Family and friends popped by to stand on our drive to just say hello and drop a card in and I thoroughly loved every minute of the fuss!
What stood out yesterday was the personal touches, the thought that had gone into messages and gifts- things to pamper/ pass time and to rest and recharge (along with cake and chocolates) and this is where I come in to help you.
My photography gift vouchers can help you to spread some cheer to your loved ones for all occasions and for Christmas too.
My gift vouchers are so much more than just a voucher, they are an experience to enjoy with your family. To capture precious moments and have these images to reflect over each year of your lifetimes.
Now more than ever we need positive things in our lives, there is so much change happening thats out of hands and we can only control the little bits we can.
So, if you are looking for something for your family to look forward to and perhaps use the images taken in your session as gifts for those you cant see at the moment or perhaps you would like to purchase a voucher for your loved ones to enjoy creating your memories with me then I can help you with that too.
My gift vouchers are valid for a whole year and if vouchers are going to be used as a gift please do let me know and I will date the voucher from that date especially for those starting to buy for Christmas now too.
Let me create happy special memories for you- your smile creator and your memory maker.
