“For my birthday I want a photo-shoot, a piano and a baby sister.”
Talk about a little person who know’s exactly what she wants! That was my daughter Miss Kupsy telling me her birthday requests a few weeks ago. I just smiled and thought this child is from another planet. Where in the world will I get a baby sister from at such short notice? I reminded her that she had a brother but she quickly pointed out that she wanted a sister NOT a brother.
I make sure each of her birthdays are memorable and this time around her photo-shoot wish came true. The photographer was convinced she had gone for a photo-shoot before but I confirmed that it was definitely her first time. We had a lot of fun. It ended up being a mother-daughter shoot but the highlight was on her. She got over 100 photos taken!

I chose the package for 15 minutes which also comes with two printed copies. Timeless Photos provides pretty temporary picture frames and they have more durable ones they sell for $5. The whole experience cost us $30 and I left a happy woman because I still had more birthday treats lined up for Miss Kupsy. A friend of mine sent her money to buy her a toy piano. Being a child is certainly the best time of your life! No one sends me money on my birthday. I’m still to buy the piano for her the ones I see when I shop around aren’t durable. I’m one person who believes that you have to buy the best from the beginning.
If you are working on a budget then I highly recommend you try out Timeless Photos. I’m definitely going back before the year ends to get some pictures taken for my fitness brand.
There are also some very good photographers in the country. They are doing amazing things. Their work is all over social media and you should certainly get in touch with them to get some work done. Don’t say I didn’t give you the hook up!
