From archives to walls…

Can you imagine what over forty years worth of files look like?  Thousands of negatives – weddings, first communions and confirmations, newborn babies, siblings, grandparents, commercial shoots, scenery.

Now imagine that someone rings up and asks for a picture to be printed from a wedding in 1980!! With a few vital details from the client, we were able to locate the negatives from her wedding in a very short time, the print was made and framed and is now hanging proudly in her home.

This got us thinking – how many people out there have been meaning to get reprints from their photoshoot, and just never got around to it?  Most of us are spending lots of time at home, spring cleaning, looking through drawers that remain unopened from one end of the year to the next.

Now is the ideal time to order that wall portrait from your wedding, to buy Granny the framed picture from your recent studio shoot to give her when lockdown ends ( along with a big hug), and to have that battered old photograph of your Great Grandparents restored and preserved for future generations.

We are still here, as we have been for over forty years, and we would love to hear from you and put some of your great memories into print to hang proudly in your home.


After the lockdown…

While the lockdown continues and we all stay at home, we have plenty of time to miss our grown-up chidren and our grandchildren. We’re all looking forward to lots of hugs and cuddles, and to spoiling them again! With this in mind, we are offering a €165 gift voucher for just €100, to be used when life returns to normal. Email us or call us on 0505 21936 and we will post or email your voucher to you.  There’s no expiry date on these special vouchers so you can use them when you have arranged your family reunion after lockdown. Stay home and stay safe.


Coronavirus Update

Today, tomorrow and Saturday (2nd, 3rd & 4th April) should have been our Happy Days event in aid of Laois, Offaly & Roscrea Autism Groups.  We are acutely aware that the hard work of these groups will continue throughout the current crisis and that vital funds are still required.

With that in mind, we are offering a €165 gift voucher for just €50, which you can buy on April 2nd, 3rd and 4th and use when life returns to normal.  There will be family occasions to catch up on, events to celebrate and lots of great reasons to have portraits made.  We will still be here, as we have been for over forty years, making precious memories for you and your loved ones.

Just email us or ring, and we will post or email your voucher out to you. We look forward to seeing you all again in the not too distant future.  Stay at home, stay safe and stay well.

St Cronan’s National School

 

St Cronan’s NS Roscrea held their annual fundraiser in Racket Hall Hotel on Friday 28th November with a cookery demonstration which attracted a huge crowd. It was our pleasure to be able to help out and the sale of our Fundraiser Portrait Vouchers raised €1600 for the school!!!. The vouchers had a face value of €165 but they were sold to staff and families at the school and beyond for €50 each which went directly to the school fund. Buyers of the vouchers (one per sitting) meant the holder will receive a full Portrait Experience and come away with a shelf top framed portrait. We were so glad that many of our existing customers had the chance to purchase and we look forward to welcoming all those new clients to our studio as well.

Picture shows Theresa presenting the cheque for €1600 to Ann Powell (Principal), S Talbot, K Maguire, Theresa Redmond, Ann Powell, L Dreaper and L Whelan.
