View Full Version : applejack stay out!! would you want this as a gift?
ok applejack you better not be in here :happyno:
with 5weeks to go for her and dh i want to know what everyones opinions are on this possible gift
i have a few things i could get her which i have told her not to tell anyone else about until i decide but we want to get her something 'special' and something they will think about that we got them it iyswim.
im not a relation or anything but very close and she has supported me like no friend could have through my mmc (actually came to scan with me when i found out no2 been had gone as dh couldnt come)
we are thinking something maybe like these - would you and your dh like it as a gift? i wasnt thinking a family one more just baby having the booking for when she is about a month old maybe? or what do you think?
opinions would be greatly appreciated :higgies:
(1st one is my fav)
I think that's a nice idea, depending on how much the prints cost I guess.
Another idea is the Imprints from John Lewis http://www.johnlewis.com/Imprints/Brand.aspx?SearchTerm=imprints You can get other places that do similar for cheaper but we were bought these as a present for our children and they have come out so well. Not something we would have thought of paying for ourselves to be honest.
chocolate lips im loving these too but the nearest to them is bristol which although not that far is still a bit of a trek
i do think they are gorgeous though
ps the plan for the shoot was we pay for the session and a couple prints - maybe a larger one and a small one or something and then if anyone else wants to purchase for themselves like the mums they can or if they want anymore they can add to it
I think its a lovely idea :smile: (though can I just say if I were applejack no way could I stay out :tongue: ) Quite a few photographers do 3 portaits of your baby in their first year as a package, that might be nice? Or, have another think about a family portait - we had some pics done when T was 6 months and we got some of him on his own, some of him with each of us and some of all 3 of us - I absolutely adore the one of all 3 of us, and have one of him and DH on my desk at work, even though the ones of him on his own are lovely too its nice for DH to feature :nod:
Yeah, I guess it doesn't work so well if there isn't one locally.
I think if you pay for the session and then a couple of prints that will work well :nod: I was just being cautious because one of my friends was bought one of those £25 session vouchers for Venture and then could barely afford the prints afterwards :rolleyes: so I think if you picked a decent local studio it would be fine.
oh no i would def get a print or 2 as part of the gift :nod: we prob looking at spending about £100 so think should be able to get some good with this as most of these the actual session is pretty good value. there is one that does home shoots too which i like the idea of
i will rethink the family shot shoppie - the reason im thinking no is that i know they are planning more than one baby and feel that a family one would be a bit obsolete once no2 comes along iyswim as no 2 would be missing but the baby would always be even though she will grow up (iyswim or have i just a weird way of thinking!!)
should i ask her or would i regret it as it may spoil the suprise iyswim? and was also thinking i would prob like to book it for her in advance for maybe when she is a month or 2 old. as she is on maternity leave do you think this would be ok if it said your shoot is on as a guess 10th sept or something?
I would wait until baby was old enought to smile, so don't book to early. It's a good idea for a gift though not something i've ever needed as my sis is a professional photographer!
:lurve: I think thats a lovely gift, something they can treasure for yrs. Yes I would say book it for a couple of months so that they are a little bit more with it after they have got use to the sleepless nights and over the birth.
