1. Showcase Mom as the star she is.
Take advantage of the family being together on this special day by photographing a group shot with Mom at the center. Get creative and have her wear a tiara or crown from a party supply store. Have fun, and celebrate Mom.
2. Capture the generations.
Photograph multiple generations of women in your family. Celebrate together and capture group shots with grandmothers, moms and daughters all together. These types of photographs quickly become family heirlooms.
3. Spend time at a garden with Mom and a camera.
Mom will always say the best gift is spending time with you. Give it to her in spades with a trip to a local garden to celebrate spring with her. Get playful taking impromptu photographs of Mom with spring blooms. Give your camera to other guests to capture shots of you with Mom.
4. Relive family memories.
Spend a day with Mom looking through her family photographs. Listen to her stories related to the photos and strengthen your own knowledge of your family history. Capture especially interesting or entertaining stories with a voice recording you can later transcribe to complement the photo.
5. Give a gift to capture the day.
Give or make a unique picture frame for Mom to memorialize a special photograph from your day together. Search the internet for picture frame crafts, or stop in a local craft store and ask for ideas. Don't think you're not creative. Even the simplest embellishment of a store-bought frame makes it unique and from you. Mom will love it.
