Mother's Day Gift Guide 2017

Mamas are such an important part of our everyday lives. It can be hard to find a gift that says you love her, but also that you know her well. You want to find something practical, and sentimental too.

Think about what makes her smile. Does she love to bake, or often stop to smell beautiful flowers? Does she love to read a good book or attend Yoga classes? Is one of her favourite things just playing with, and being with, her little ones?

Instead of being empty handed because you're overthinking it, as a mom myself, I've put together a guide to help you along. All of these gifts are available from retail locations right here in the Niagara Region, so you can shop local too!

A Motherhood Session at Reflections of Life Photography. They're for expecting mamas, their babies and their husband if they'd like. These sessions are more than including her in the portrait session. I want to document the essence of her and the connection she has with her little ones.

Mamas spend their lives ensuring their children are nurtured and loved, and I love to document the care and affection they show as a keepsake.

Motherhood sessions are available at Reflections of Life until Sunday, May 14, 2017, and they include a handmade MAMA bracelet and a $50 gift card that can go toward your collection.
