7 Mother's Day gifts for Mom

Mother’s Day is right around the corner! Do you know what you’re going to get her?

This year has flown by for me, and I can’t believe Mother’s Day is so close.

I know shopping for Mother’s Day gifts can be stressful, so I’ve put together a short list of some ideas for what you can get your Mom/Grandma/Stepmom (or anyone special in your life) for Mother’s Day.

I love these and one in my house. Fracture takes your photo and prints them on glass as a wall hanging. These are great for someone that doesn’t want to mess with framing, likes clean lines, and has a modern flare. Tthey are priced really well from $17-$135 for their largest.

Digital photo frame

We are all guilty of taking lots of pictures but never printing and framing them to put up in our house. This is a great way to see the photos you’ve taken either by a professional photographer or on your phone. Digital photo frames range in price from $100-$300 just depending on what you are looking for.

Customized Mother’s Day Photo card

Instead of sending her a normal card, send your Mom a customized Mother’s Day Card! Artifact Uprising is offering a free Mother’s Day card if you order by May 1, 2018. I love their prints and cards. They use heavy card stock and quality printing. While you’re there, take a look at their beautiful prints, frames, photo books, and prints with wood stands.

Custom set of photo coasters

Perfect for everyday use! There are a lot of places that have custom photo coasters. These are perfect for Grandma with lots of grandkids!

Subscription to Click Magazine

Does your Mom enjoy photography? Wants to learn more about photography? This magazine is perfect for everyone at any level! I read my cover to cover when it comes it. It has amazing tips! Plus, this gift gives all year round.

A camera charm

My husband gave me this one to put on my charm bracelet, and I love it! Especially since I’ve started shooting with film. This charm is super cute and really affordable! Check it out at here.

A gift certificate for family photos

Haven’t had family photos taken in awhile? Does Mom want updated photos to put up on the wall? Give it to her! Myself and many other photographers offer gift certificates for Moms because we know how much they want it! Contact me for your photo gift certificate.

These are just a few fun ideas to get you started! Take care of your Mom on Mother’s Day!

A special shout out to this Mom who had a special photo shoot with her son before she went out for Basic Training in the US Air Force. Thank you very much for your service and sacrifice!

Wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day!

Mom and Son Mini-Session | Round Rock, TX

I had the pleasure of photographing to cutest little boy and his mom a couple of weeks ago.  He was so curious and adventurous!

And even though high noon with harsh sun light on a completely cloudless day is not 'ideal' photography light, I completely embraced it and had an amazing mid-day photo session in Round Rock!  With a gorgeous Mom and cute little boy, who wouldn't want to rock their photo shoot?!

Enjoy this cute Fall Mini-session!

Mom and Me photo session in Austin

I love photographing Mom and Me sessions!

Why do I love it so much?


Because children want to see photos of themselves with their moms (and dads!) when they grow up!

Think about it.  When you look at your childhood photos, do you look remember when and where the photo was taken?  Do you remember the argument before hand or the goofy joke someone told to get everyone to laugh and smile?  Do you remember why you picked that outfit and how 'in fashion' it was at the time?  You were stylin' weren't you?!

Grown adults don't look at their childhood photographs and criticize they way their parents looked.  They look at that photo and remember all the good memories that go with it.

Parents today (especially moms) will find every excuse in the world to not be in a photograph with their kids.  Here are some of the excuses I've heard:

  • My hair's not done.
  • I don't have any makeup on.
  • I'm not wearing the right clothes.
  • I just want it to be about the kids.

And the most common I hear...

  • I don't look good enough (aka I'm too fat and I need to lose weight)

Well, I'm here to tell you if you keep putting off taking family photographs with your kids, one day your kids will end up with a zillion childhood memories of themselves and nothing to look back on to remember you, their parent.

That is why I love Mom and Me sessions!

A mom or dad who is willing to step outside of their comfort zone in order to capture beautiful memories of them with their kids is a parent to applaud!

I recently photographed a Mom and Me session over by Mansfield Damn and Steiner Ranch in Austin.  I loved photographing this Mom and Daughter!!  We laughed and just a really good time which turned out some amazing photos!

Enjoy this Mom and Me photos taken in Austin!

Grandma, Mom, and Me!

Last Saturday, we had some serious thunderstorms roll into our area.  About an hour before everything hit, I photographed a fabulous Mom and Me session!

For one, I was able to get 3 generations in one photo.  And two, this family is flat out adorable!  They were all smiles!  Becky, Becky's mom, and her three kids were great to photograph!
