Does the mom in your life love her camera, but it could use a little – sparkle? How about a lovely camera strap. Check out these two lovely options:
Half the problem with photography is that it takes so much time to send photos out to print – so why not help mom make it easier? This cool little printer makes fantastic photos, and is pretty darn affordable.
If you’re thinking about a piece of jewelry for Mother’s Day this year – how about a pretty locket with photos of her favourite people inside? The Locket Tree has some gorgeous choices, which can be engraved with a date or sentiment.
For around $50 you can have one of mom’s favourite images printed on canvas. Check your local store or online photo printers like Black’s or Shutterfly for details. Keep in mind that you’ll need a large (high-resolution) image to get good quality on the canvas.
Does mom have a beautiful selection of photos, but no way to display them? Then perhaps it’s time to pick up a selection of photo frames to help her show off her work. The Pottery Barn has a wide selection of frames online, in a range of styles. You can pick up some enamel frames with your kid’s names engraved on them, or a full kit of stepped frames to decorate an entire wall.
How much does mom love photography? Does she wish that she had a few more skills under her belt to take even better photos? Perhaps this Mother’s Day you can help her out, with an online photography course, or a real, in-person workshop where she can explore, create, and make even better images.
Books are great too – if Mom is into books on photography. Check out Jane’s “Capturing Every Day Life” – it has some great tips on making amazing kid’s photos!
