Organize a Beach Day

For a comprehensive Mother's Day experience, spoil mom with a beach outing, and document it with plenty of photos! There's always cute little shops to explore and places to eat near the beach, and you can also take mom's portrait near the water, which is always a scenic location for a picture. For more flattering results, take beach photos near sunrise or sunset, when the sun's light is soft.
