Mother’s Day

Mom.  She’s the woman who brought you into this world.  You have to respect that.  If you were fortunate enough to have the same woman raise you into a responsible adult, she was an extraordinary woman and you will always be in her debt.  Only when you become a parent will you truly understand how much your mother loved you, even if she didn’t always show it the way you needed.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and if you can’t think of a gift to get her, consider a beautiful family portrait.  Remember that you are your mother’s treasure.   If you have your own family now, your family is her priceless investment, the fruit of her labor.

Family portraits offer moms a keepsake of the most important people in her life.  It truly is the perfect gift.

Also consider making portraits of just your mother and with your mother.  Including mom in a portrait let’s her know that you never want her to be forgotten.  Most photographers can use Photoshop to shave a few years off of Mom’s face as in the example below!

I used Photoshop to soften wrinkles and remove age spots for a result that Mom would love!

Once you choose a few favorites, you can upload them to a website like mPix and choose from a selection of photo gifts including standard prints on pearl photo paper, or choose a modern metal paper which adds a beautiful shine to the surface of the print.  These display beautifully in frames.  mPix also offers other gifts like Canvas Gallery Wraps, Accordion Minis, Thumbprint Photo Boxes, and can have them delivered right to your doorstep…or better yet, Mom’s doorstep!

Frames are very important.  Sure you could go to Wal-Mart or Target to find frames but why not find the perfect frame?  Home boutiques stock handmade, artisanal frames and other display items that can really make your portraits stand out as extraordinary.  Professional framers like The Great Frame Up in Mount Laurel, NJ have the experience to find the right colors and the materials to give your photo an extra special touch for a truly unique presentation.
