Mother's day is just around the corner, and it's time to start thinking about how to celebrate the person who brought you into the world! You might even want to break out the camera or iPhone to snap a few photos of mom on her special day. Here's a few photo ideas to create some unforgettable moments with her:
Recreate an Old Family Photo
When was the last time you looked at photos of you as a baby or young child? Recreating a precious or funny moment from your childhood is a great way to bond with mom in addition to sharing a laugh. For this idea, revisit the family photo album and find an old picture of you and mom and recreate it! Bonus points if it's a funny or embarrassing photo.
Get the Moms Together
This idea is perfect for those who have large families especially, but it can still work even if your family is small! Get all the moms in your family together for a single group photo that highlights motherhood across generations. You can also consider matching colors for an ever stronger image composition.
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.
Book a Family Photoshoot
If you really want to treat mom for Mother's Day, book a professional photography session with just you and her, or bring the whole family. Most people don't have enough quality portraits of their parents. A professional photography session is a great way to celebrate mom while updating the family photo album at the same time! If you want to make Mother's Day an unforgettable moment for mom this year, get in touch with me and we can schedule a session.
Well, there you have it: four fun photo ideas for Mother's Day. Which one sounds the best to you? I hope you and your family have a happy Mother's Day.
