Gift giving can be more complicated than planned. Finding something new, special and meaningful every year can give you some serious headaches.
Fortunately, we at Fotograf HQ are here to help you!

Whether you are looking to treat your significant other, your Mum or even your best friend, here are five reasons why a photoshoot is the perfect gift you are looking for!


1. A timeless, perfect gift: celebrate long-lasting love with a photoshoot

We are all looking for that one present. The one that ticks all the boxes:

  • Thoughtful
  • Unique
  • Enjoyable
  • Long-lasting

And this year is the time to innovate with such a sentimental gift that will forever reflect the unique personality of your loved one with a series of portraits taken by professionals.

Photos are an important part of our life. They are here to remind us of love and good times. And while we fill the walls of our homes with photos of our family and friends, we often forget one of the most important things in this space: ourselves.

Professional portraits are here to forever remind ourselves of who we really are and proudly show our friends of this other side of our personality they may not know about.

From traditional frames to bolder pieces, we offer a wide variety of artwork with plenty of options to tailor your portraits to the unique settings of your home, making it the perfect gift for your special someone.

2. A photoshoot is above all a unique experience, to cherish and remember forever

At Fotograf HQ, our photoshoots are not just about the results but also about the journey and experience you will have.

We work together to offer fun, unique sessions tailored to your personality and desires. From hair and make up to the design of your session, we are here to listen to your story, experiences and desires, and most of all make you feel comfortable in our studio.

Indeed, some of us have a hard time accepting ourselves. From recent changes to our bodies to constant “perfection” displayed on social media, there is plenty of reasons why we do not always see ourselves as the gorgeous human being that everyone else sees. Our hair and make up professionals are here to make you look and feel fabulous and enhance your already stunning features.

Our team is here to pamper you and take you to a journey to self-confidence.

Discover our unique photoshoot experience and opt for the gift of confidence and self-love.

3. The perfect gift: spending some quality time together

As a couple, we sometimes forget the importance of spending quality time together. Everyday life can sometimes make us feel that we do not have time for ‘us’ and often prioritise other commitments. Whether it’s the kids, work or the general hustle of life… devoting time just for you and your partner can sometimes seem challenging. It’s important to remember that spending quality time with your significant other is not only important for yourself: is also the key to a healthy, long-lasting relationship.

What is quality time?

Quality time is much more than simply being with each other. It is all about forgetting our everyday worries for an hour or two, and truly being present and focused on the other person. It is also a good occasion to remind ourselves of what made us fall in love in the first place, and see them as a lover and a friend, and not simply as the person who shares our life.

Here are a few ideas on how to make the most of it:

  • Plan ahead: dedicate one or two hours to your significant other at least one in a week. And don’t forget to put it in your agenda. This way, you are making sure no to let yourself carried away from the things that really matter: yourselves.
  • Turn your phones off: reconnect with your special person and discover again this gorgeous feeling of listening to them while being listened to.
  • Avoid talking about everyday subjects: chores and work can wait. There is so much more to us. Indeed, we are not that boring person that we sometimes see ourselves as. We are all complex human beings, with interests and passions. Share with your partner what makes you react and what makes you feel passionate. Let them discover again the amazing person you are.
  • Seize every opportunity: spending quality time together does not have always have to be a restaurant booking. Looking into other activities, or simply dress up and enjoy a romantic dinner at home. Take every occasion to take time for yourselves.

Why is quality time so important as a couple?

According to The Date Night opportunity, spending quality time together as a couple at least once a week will improve relationship happiness by 3.5 times!

This shows us that beyond the relaxing time that these breaks offer us, spending quality time with your partner is a key to a happy relationship. It is also a way to force ourselves to practice self-care on a weekly basis, and remember that there is so much we can do.

Photoshoot and quality time

Spending time with your love in a personal photo shoot experience that is designed specifically for you is the epitome of quality time. They are a unique experience to uncover your story, both as individuals and as a couple. It is all about having a fun time together, creating memories and capturing the moments of connection between the two of you. It is also the occasion to create a long-lasting testimony of your love story to show the world, but also to remind ourselves of that special bond that unites you during harder times.

4. The perfect gift, suited for everyone

Society has a lot of expectations and so-called “norms”. We are constantly exposed to unrealistic, unattainable “beauty standards”. These can sometimes affect our own body image and leave us feeling depressed.

At Fotograf HQ, we know that beauty comes in all shapes, colours, sizes and ages. Our team celebrates diversity and body-positivity by showing yourself to the world as you are, and not as what people expect of you. There is no place for labels or expectations in our studios.

Whether you wish to treat your significant other to a romantic gift or to treat your best friend with a thoughtful present, a photoshoot is an experience open to everyone, anytime.

Give them the gift of acceptance and self-discovery.


5. Support your small local Melbourne businesses

2020 has been a hard year for businesses around Victoria and Australia. We all discovered again the importance of buying local, Australian products to support our economy.
