Capturing the Moment

Have you had a chance to enjoy the Autumn splendor and beauty, which is in full glory right now?  If not, hurry....get out there and soak it up before it is gone for another year.

I love Fall for so many reasons - cooler temperatures, and especially the red and yellow leaves, which are ablaze against a crystal blue sky.  It truly is a beautiful time of the year.  Previously, I've made a couple of canvas prints of various Autumn scenes, and have them hanging on my hallway walls.   I love to bring the outdoors in, and using my very own photos is my absolute favourite way of capturing the moment.


In fact, with the holidays approaching....I could turn my photography into great photo gift ideas.

In the past, I've used pictures taken the whole year through to make both sets of grandparents calendars with photos coordinating with the month.  For instance,  during the month of March, I would have a picture of my oldest daughter, since her birthday is in that month.  It is a fun and unique gift idea and is always very well received by the recipient.  

I enjoy taking photos, and I love having them on display for all to take pleasure from.

How about you, do you use your photography for decorating or gift giving?

I love the idea of giving a calender with appropriate monthly themed pictures. Our son lives away and a calender of monthly photos from home would be perfect for him!

Beautiful photo. I'm not good at photography at all so I never send photos as gifts. I'd love to learn though!

We take photos of the kids and in the past I've made fridge magnets, calendars, scrapped photos, t-shirts and mugs. Taking pics is fun!

fall colours are so gorgeous, they would make a great print and of course the kids always make beautiful art work with their gorgeous shiny faces!

I've thought of doing that so many times, but I'm not organized so it never worked out. But I LOVE the idea! And your scenery is so gorgeous.
