The Day That...My Son Was Born

A Unique Personalised Gift To Commemorate A Special Day

"Imagine a high-quality, framed photograph of dawn on the day you would like to commemorate.  Evoking all the emotion and significance of that special day."

The Day That... is an online company specialising in creating one of the most unique gifts on the market.  Every morning since 2005, before day break, photographers have headed out to capture the drama of the dawn skies, so that images can be crafted into beautiful works of art.  These unique, authentic photographs become a treasured reminder of a memorable day, evoking the mood and magic of those special moments.

Ideal as a birth, christening, wedding or anniversary gift or for celebrating any special date, these mounted, framed and hand inscribed pictures are simply breathtaking and so symbolic, capturing the start of each momentous day for all time. They are timeless pieces of art to mark The Day got married, gave birth or celebrated a special anniversary.

I was given the chance to experience The Day That... for myself so I could create my own special framed photograph to commemorate a special day in my life.  The website is really easy to use and is a visual treat as you search through the beautiful dawn images.  It takes just a few simple steps to create your own bespoke and original piece of wall art.

Firstly you find the special date that you want to commemorate using the handy calendar tool.  Each dawn shoot provides a selection of photographs in both landscape and portrait to choose from, so you can pick the one that best encapsulates the feeling of what that day means to you.  I found the dawn photographs from the day my youngest son was born and had nine images to choose from.  One of the seascapes looked so still, so tranquil and so calm.  It was just perfect.

The next step is to pick a size for the finished piece.  They range from Small 28cm x 35cm to Exhibition size 66.5cm x 84cm.  Next you choose the frame type from either Birch, Palisander, Silver or Black.  You can see exactly how the finished picture will look when you click on each option.  When you are happy with how it looks, you can write a personalised message that will be hand inscribed on the mount.  It really is that simple!  (An unframed mounted version is also available for framing yourself.)

My finished picture arrived well packaged in a box with bubble wrap and cardboard corners ensuring its safe arrival in perfect condition.  The photo above does not give justice to just how gorgeous the finished piece is.  The colours are rich and the image itself is so poignant, knowing that this was the actual dawn of the day when my son came into the world.  It is simply beautiful with the inscription "Freddy's First Day" with his date of birth hand inscribed onto the mount.

Anyone would be thrilled to receive such a thoughtful, original and unique gift.  Prices start from just £55 for the unframed service.

Just take at look at to see the photographs taken on the special days in your family's life (since 2005).
