From golf clubs to ties, it can be hard to know what to give Dad as a gift when he’s already got it all. However, one thing that never gets old is a gift that has a special, personal touch.

Professional photos make great Father’s Day gift ideas. These presents are from the heart and can be done year after year while still being both interesting and touching.

Unsure as to whether or not you want to give pictures for Father’s Day? Here are five benefits to doing so.

1) There Are Lots of Different Photo Theme Options
One of the best things about having photographs taken is that they can be done every year with different results, if you so choose. This is in part due to the many themes that you can use for your unique final product.

Children make fantastic subjects because they are always growing and changing. You can have your child pose with musical instruments, blocks, pets or other things that will bring out his or her personality and make Dad proud.

Photos can also be taken in black and white or sepia tone, and can use other effects to impart a formal, nostalgic and/or irreverent look.

2) You Can Get Special Services to Enhance Your Gift
Although an image in and of itself can be a lovely token of your affection, you can go even further. Photos can be made into custom iPhone covers and iPad cases. You can also get your portrait specially framed at the studio.

3) Examples of Past Sessions Help You Get a Feel for What You Want
When you want a touching portrayal of your loved one but aren’t sure what kind of theme or look you’d prefer, it can help to look at galleries of past subjects. Images can be as sweet and innocent or full of humor as you want. It’s easy to achieve a modern or old-time look that reflects Dad’s style preferences.

4) Expert Technique, Lighting and Backgrounds
Of course, one of the biggest benefits of getting these items done through a professional studio is that they will offer you top-of-the-line backgrounds, lighting and expert technique.

While it is possible to take pictures at home yourself, the results will be even more striking with the right lighting and methods.

5) It’s Convenient to Set up an Appointment
Setting up an appointment to have your portraits done couldn’t be easier. Search for a studio by zip code or state to find one near you. Then, select the location you prefer and fill out information about yourself, your session and when you’d like to come in. It’s that easy!

Go online to set up an appointment with Picture People or other professional photo studios today.
