rewire bathroom gfs plugs

Have two bathrooms that have gfs plugs that are wired to power on when lights are turned on. Is it possible to wire so they are always on with probable existing wiring?

Open lights and switch boxes and tell us all the wires and connections in them

Maybe. It will depend on how it is wired now. You will need to open up each box and tell us (or pictures are better) what you have for wiring.

All I see is a 15 amp GFCI receptacle, where is the plug?

You will need to locate where the wires for the GFCI are located. Since it is switched it will be likely coming from the switch box or the light fixture. If it is in the switch box, making it hot all the time should be fairly easy. If it is in the light fixture box, not so much.
