Thinking of giving a Mae Photography Gift Box? Here’s what you need to know…
What is a gift box from Mae Photography?
Our gift boxes are essentially a voucher for a professional photography session, presented in a smart gift box. The voucher can be personalised with the recipients name for an extra special touch and contains the information of their photography package. This is presented in a beautifully wrapped box for a luxury, high-quality gift.
What does a photography session look like?
The photo shoot could take place on location, for example at the beach, the park or their home. Being in a beautiful, familiar setting can help them relax and enjoy the experience. It’s great for small children to be able to have fun and run around, resulting in lovely, natural shots. Alternatively, they can opt for a studio session – we have a portable studio kit that we can bring to their home. This combines the two aspects of studio style images while being in a comfortable environment.
What is your availability?
The great thing about our gift boxes is that the voucher is valid for a year, so the recipient can contact us to book in their session whenever is best for them. We try to be as accommodating as possible, being available for shoots during daytimes, evenings and weekends.
How do they receive their prints?
Once the pictures have been edited, they are uploaded to a private web gallery – this is an online portal which is password-protected, where they can log in to view their photographs. This gallery can also be shared with friends and family so you can see them too! From here they can select the images they would like, and a few days later, will receive their delicately wrapped prints in a protective box. Further prints and products are available for purchase through their gallery.
What kind of prints do they receive?
All of our prints are printed on lustre paper. This is a high-quality professional paper that is somewhere between matt and gloss in texture – it has a nice shine without it being too reflective and causing nasty glare. We use archival inks along with archival paper so the prints last longer without fading.
Who are the gift boxes for?
