New Camera Bag

A camera bag is essential for hauling your camera, lenses and other gear around safely.

Her camera already goes everywhere so why not get her a pretty new bag to put it in?

Gallery Wall

She is going to need a place to display all those stunning photos she is taking. Gather multiple frames or other photo hanging elements that all go together. This way she can create a space to showcase her favorite photos. Get a few of the photos developed ahead of time for bonus points.


A Pretty New Camera Strap 

Most cameras come with a standard strap that is less than pleasing to the eyes. Purchase a pretty camera strap that shows off her style and provides functionality as well.


Mixbook Canvas Print 

Mixbook has hundreds of options for developing photos. A canvas print of one of her photos will be a beautiful gift. You can also create memory books, large prints, and almost anything else you can think of that could have a photo on it.


External Hard Drive

All those photos can cause a major digital storage issue. Rather than housing the photos on her computer, get her an external hard drive so she can safely store and organize all of her photos in one place. 

Adobe Lightroom 

This might be her most favorite gift she has ever been given and costs less than $10/month. Adobe Lightroom is a photographer’s dream, providing editing tools that will enhance those already beautiful images. It is super easy to use and she will love all the features. 


I’m sure you’d agree with me that there is no gift in the entire world that could pay a mom back for all she has done, but these photography Mother’s Day gifts are sure to make her feel special.
