Everyone deserves to have their picture taken by a professional, even your parents. A photo session would make an amazing gift for any occasion; birthday, mother’s day/father’s day, Christmas, or an anniversary. Here are the top 3 reasons you should book a photoshoot for your parents.
It’s probably been years since your parents have had professional photos taken of just themselves. Whether it was family photos 10 years ago or their wedding day 25 years ago. Time flies and life gets busy, but everyone needs updated photos of themselves throughout all stages of life.
You’ve given your parents a ton of gifts over the years, it gets hard to think of something unique, creative, and something you haven’t given them before. A photoshoot is a great option because it’s not only a gift for them, but the pictures can then be given to other family members or even passed down through future generations.
If your parents have celebrated a lot of anniversaries they’ve been going on dates for YEARS. Sometimes it’s hard to break out of a dating rut and bring new creative ideas to the dating side of their relationship. A photo session can be an amazing date idea. They get out of the house, get to go to a beautiful location or spot that is meaningful to them, and take photos together. During a photoshoot they’ll be able to have fun together and show their love for one another in a new way.
Those are the 3 main reasons I encourage you to book a photoshoot for your parents. It makes for a great gift, is a lasting keepsake, and is a different date night than they’re used to. Instead of giving them an object they don’t actually need or already have a million of; give them a gift that is truly priceless. Photos of themselves in a new stage of life that show the true growth of their relationship. Having photos of their love will be timeless. A true memory everyone will cherish forever.
When Amanda booked this session for her parents she also included her grandpa. Amanda’s mom, Connie, was overjoyed when she realized she would get updated photos of her and her dad.
There will come a day when these photos mean more than the world to this family, your family deserves to have these memorable moments preserved too.

the ultimate gift guide
This adorable bag comes in three different colors – black, grey, and light pink. It’s perfect for your bachelorette weekend road trip or a classic overnight slumber party.
A great way to coordinate the girl gang, there are three colors to choose from gold, rose gold, and silver pick each girls favorite metal and they’ll be sure to keep wearing it even after your wedding.
These are perfect if your looking for a unique bridesmaid gift. They are so witty, and so fun. Especially if you have some cool, sarcastic friends, they’ll appreciate the not-so-cliche gift.
The ultimate form of comfort. Who doesn’t love a soft blanket? Also super easy to customize, add their name or nickname for a personal touch.
Trendy, cute, and practical. A whole pack of velvet scrunchies for only $6, even if you don’t want to give these to your bridesmaids, you should at least get them for yourself.
if satin scrunchies are more your thing.
These babies come in 25 colors can order in packs of two to save even more money. It’d be so cute to customize with vinyl letters! They could be personalized with everybody’s names, monograms, or “bridesmaid” (Personally I’d use everyones names or monograms because they’ll be more likely to use them longer)
No matter the mood of your group, everyone will have lots of tiny items while getting ready. Use these bags for make-up or jewelry so nothing gets misplaced.
This speaker comes in four different colors, it’s definitely tiny but seriously mighty, it’s even water proof. Blast your fav songs to keep the party going wherever you are.
Who doesn’t love candles?!? If your friends are like mine, we spend wayyy more than we’d like to admit on candles. It’s always so much better to receive them as gifts. This is another great way to match a gift to each girl individually. There are tons of scents an they all come in adorable tin jars. Super easy to find the perfect one for each of your bffs.
Classic yet hip. Perfect for a bach party bar crawl or beach day. There are so many different ways to wear bandanas. You can get all the same color or switch it up. These would also be super easy to personalize.
You could make them even more trendy by adding a little tie dye. Buy a pack of white bandanas and use your fav colors.
A little relaxing treat for all their hard work.
Would this even be a bridesmaid gift guide if I didn’t include satin robes for getting ready? These are a stellar affordable options and they come in 9 different colors.
All of these gifts will help show your bridal party how much you appreciate and love them.
