DAY #10: JOIN THE BIRTHDAY CLUB

2017GiftGuide-10.jpg

Did you know Stories Framed Photography has a BIRTHDAY CLUB

It's actually an exclusive benefit for past clients. 

THE GIST: every year during your child's birthday month, you come in to the studio for a super-quick little photo shoot. You know, for that updated photo for Grandma's wall. Each session comes with a framed gift print.

Because today is a special day (!) in the world of Stories Framed Photography, I'm doing something special for YOU.

I'm opening up the Birthday Club to EVERYONE.

Past client or not, you can opt in. Today ONLY.

This would make an excellent holiday gift idea for new parents, veteran parents, grandparents. Simply click below to opt in to the club.

You will pre-pay the 2018 session fee but the (free) membership never ends. Every year you will receive an invitation to come in for your child's birthday photo shoot.  

Let's watch your kids grow up together.

When you purchase the 2018 Birthday Club session, a certificate will be prepared and gift wrapped for you to give.

The month before the child's birthday, an invitation will be sent out to schedule the session.

DAY #9: LOCAL LOVE BY PAPER PLEASERS

2017GiftGuide-09.jpg

I have absolutley fallen in love with these adorable and beautifully crafted local gift items. 

Ellen is the creative mind and hands behind the paper... and she does more than just paper, by the way. Check out this A-MAZING scented candle-in-a-jar with the Milwaukee skyline. How does "Blood Orange & Mahogany" sound to you? Multiply that x100. THAT'S how good it smells. 

ADDED BONUS: When you're done with the candle, there are instructions on how to clean the jar so you can use it as a drinking glass! The gift that keeps on giving!

Personally, I have my eye on her Mini Love states.... I want to get one for each state I've lived in. Do you know where I've lived? 

P.S. Tomorrow is a special day (wink wink).... so I have a SUPER-SPECIAL deal for you! Check back for tomorrow's gift idea. DON'T MISS IT!

Who is your ideal client?
Anyone who is interested in yoga. :)

What is something people THINK they know about your job? 
I wonder if some people might think I get to practice yoga all day long. :)

Name one thing you WISH people knew about your job?
I sit at a desk a lot and do lots of paperwork, emailing, scheduling, planning events, etc, etc, etc...

Tell us a secret about your job. 
I work really hard at what I do, and I truly get "stressed out" about my job and owning my own business sometimes. I have good and bad days like everyone else has with their jobs. And, there are times when self-doubt and questioning come in more than I would like...but, I feel so blessed that this is what I get to do. I love my job and the Tosa Yoga community that I get to work with, and I wouldn't change it for anything. 

What is the ONE book that you think I should read RIGHT NOW?
The Yamas & Niyamas: Exploring Yoga's Ethical Practice by Deborah Adele (We read this as part of our Yoga Teacher Training Program. It is life-changing!)

DAY #7: PERSONALIZED NOTEPAD

2017GiftGuide-07.jpg

Imagine walking through the grocery store all by yourself. With your shopping list, neatly written in your best penmanship. Along the bottom of the paper are photos of your three beautiful daughters. 

Well, one out of three ain't bad. 

I can't promise you the best writing or a silent shopping spree, but I can create a beautiful notepad upon which to write your lists.

Wouldn't you love to have a show-stopping and memorable notepad for all your note-taking needs?
