Mothers Day is the perfect time to celebrate Mothers. Celebrate your own Mother or Grandmother. Celebrate being a mother yourself. Celebrate this day together. Having her portrait professionally taken is a great way of capturing how beautiful your Mum is. It stops time and captures this moment.
I read an article in the Brisbane times the other day about people looking for photos to remember their Mum by after they have passed away and not being able to find any. It went on to say that this was partly because of a mother’s reluctance to have her photo taken. A combination of her believing she was both not attractive enough and not important enough to appear in photos.
The only time some mothers appear in photos are selfies they take with their children. It is important not to be invisible in our family histories and, since nobody else seems willing to take the photos, they have to do it themselves.
The article then mentions that Dads should take more photos of Mums because their kids will want them in the future. There is a problem with this is though. Where will they end up? They will be stored on a phone or a computer somewhere or even worse, lost due to corruption and there will still be no photos to remember her by. Photos need to be printed, so when looking for them in years to come, they will be easier to find.
Rather than relying on a selfie on a smart-phone, Mums should take the opportunity to get dressed up, come in for a full hair and makeup session and have her portrait professionally taken. It is a great day of pampering and she will feel like a model for a day. She can be photographed in any way she dreams of. Then, she will have beautiful printed photos of herself which will not only make her feel great about herself, but will be handed down through generations to come.
So if you want to celebrate your Mum or being a Mum, contact me now to book to come in for a portrait photoshoot so I can capture a beautiful Mother!
