Mother's Day is quickly coming upon us, and each year we struggle to come up with a great idea or gift to give to our mothers. They are our teachers, they guide us, mold us, comfort us and scold us. As youngsters we don't see the bigger picture of why they do what they do, and as we grow and get older we see how imperative those lessons are to our being. So how can one specific gift convey to our Moms how appreciative we are of all their sacrifice, heartache, joy and work?
Just look around. Mothers are the matriarchs of society, making crucial decisions on a daily basis that affect every part of our lives. But even having the most beautiful home, well-manicured lawn, or stylish clothes does not compare to the pride and joy they get from their children. And that is why Mothers and women of the family are usually the keepers of images. They decorate their homes and their walls with framed artwork captured in candids and professional portraits. They store countless images in their phones of those loved ones they are surrounded by, capturing a fleeting moment at the park, or a touching moment between siblings at home.
This year, give Mom the gift of something she will cherish, the gift of professional portraiture to store and document what she is most proud of, her family. Not only will you make this a memorable year for her, but these will be those portraits passed on from generation to generation. These will be the items future generations will be fighting over long after we are gone.
