Picture perfect

A picture speaks a thousand words with a personalised portrait from Perfect Pictures in Penzance.

Christmas is fast approaching and with it comes the inevitable annual challenge to track down those all-important presents. With every passing year it can seem more difficult to come up with a new and original idea for the family. Of course, you can pick up an anonymous pre-wrapped gift set for him or her, but where’s the personal touch in that? No doubt it’ll be enjoyed briefly, only to be forgotten about shortly after.

So how about a really special present that will be treasured forever – a truly personal gift that captures a moment in time? A professional family portrait is the perfect solution! Head to Perfect Pictures in Penzance, which has an onsite photographic studio, ideal for individual or family portraits.

For just £40, you’ll receive a one-hour session with the professional photographer, plus a free print and a disc of proofs. What’s more, Perfect Pictures can then turn your photos into a range of unique and personalised gifts including mugs, T-shirts, jigsaws, keyrings, 3D photoblocks, placemats, and traditional canvasses. The possibilities are endless.

Alternatively, if you have an animal lover in your life, why don’t you treat them to a pet portrait instead? If, however, you already have lots of treasured photos that you’d like to bring together, then a bespoke photo book is for you. Baby photos, wedding celebrations, or road trip memories? A professionally printed and bound book makes the perfect gift.

With ten years in the business, Perfect Pictures offers a full range of products and services, from duplicate prints and re-touching to converting your old VHS home movies to DVD.

It is often said that a picture speaks a thousand words. So if you really want to say something special to the ones you love, why not book your personalised portrait now?
