Wondering how to celebrate Mother’s Day during a pandemic? You’re not alone! In normal times you might have treated Mum to a Sunday lunch at the local pub, coffee and cake at the garden centre, or possibly a bit of a shopping trip, but that’s all out the window thanks to the coronavirus.

Need some inspiration – quick?

Popular Mother’s Day gift ideas this year centre around things mum can enjoy at home, from gardening tools to housewares and CDs. But if, like most people, you’ve barely seen your mum in the last year, you probably want to give her something a bit more personal. Something from the heart that tells her how much you miss her, appreciate her and that you can’t wait to give her a massive hug!

My family photoshoots are ideal for mums who have missed out on seeing their families grow for the last year. Whether you’d like your mum to have a beautiful portrait of your family, or want her to join you in the photoshoot, I promise you’ll end up with images that you’ll all love and treasure for years to come. Fees start at £75 for a midweek session. Please check out my package prices here for digitals and products.

A photoshoot with me is relaxed and fun – not just a chore to get through so Granny has some photos to hang on her wall! It’s all about capturing your personalities, your connections and the love that binds you all together, even if a year of being stuck together in lockdown has pushed you all to breaking point!

I’m taking bookings now for 29th March onwards, when restrictions ease to allow outdoor social gatherings of two households or six people. Photoshoots can be in a location of your choice – a local park, woodlands or your own garden. I know of lots of lovely places around Farnham, Guildford, Yateley, Fleet, Farnborough and beyond, so just ask me if you need ideas.

At least the easing of covid restrictions last Monday (8th March) means you can wish your mum a Happy Mother’s Day face to face this Sunday – you can even enjoy a coffee or picnic together, as long as it’s outside. But that’s about it, and the great British weather looks like it could put its own restrictions on outdoor meetings, so maybe a Mothering Sunday Zoom call isn’t such a bad idea after all! If you decide to keep it virtual, my photoshoot gift vouchers can also be emailed.
