Mother’s Day 2023 | Gift A Portrait Session with Ting Yi Studio!

Filed in: Portraits, Studio

Finding the perfect Mother’s Day gift can be challenging (or a gift for any woman). The extraordinary women in our lives deserve something heartfelt and meaningful, and another personalized coffee mug just won’t cut it. Instead, gift her a well-deserved portrait session! Not only will she get updated portraits styled the way she likes, but she will also get a day of pampering. Ting Yi Studio now offers hair and makeup services as part of our portrait packages! When you give the lovely lady in your life a portrait session, you give her the gift of self-love and self-expression—something she could probably use more of in her busy life.

(Pssst—If you’re a bride this year, a portrait session also makes the perfect gift for Mom on your wedding day!)

6 Reasons Women’s Portrait Sessions Make the Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

She can book when she wants.

Maybe Mom’s schedule is tight, or she likes to travel on the weekends. When you gift her a portrait session, she can book the best day and time for her! Tuesday at 2 pm? Let’s do it! A portrait session is very flexible and is the perfect gift for busy moms.

Or, maybe you want to give your wife a maternity session. You can surprise her with the gift, and she can book her maternity photos during her third trimester. She will have time to plan, style, and book on her own schedule.

Alternative to boudoir photography.

Boudoir sessions are a popular and empowering experience for many women (and those are certainly an option as well). But some women want updated portraits they can share and use for a variety of purposes and displays. A portrait session offers that sense of empowerment and boost of confidence, but you don’t have to put on your sexiest lingerie and lounge on the bed to do it. A portrait session is simply self-expression in whatever style she prefers. It might feel awkward to gift a boudoir session, but sons and daughters alike can give Mom a fun portrait session!

Hair and makeup are included!

Most photographers can recommend a good hair and makeup artist for you to book separately from your session. But since we specialize in portrait photography, we’ve hired a full-time hair and makeup artist, which includes those services in the portrait package! All she has to do is show up for a day of pampering and fun posing.

She can choose her style and type of session.

No matter if that special mom or lady in your life loves sparkle, timeless elegance, or colorful ensembles, she can style her session any way she wants. We specialize in all women’s portraits: maternity, boudoir, branding, classic, themed, glamour—you name it, we can do it. In fact, you can gift a portrait session, and she can discreetly book the type of session she wants with me. (Maybe she’s always wanted to try a boudoir session. She can book it, and no one will ever know!)

Most moms—and all women, really—don’t have many good photos of themselves. I can attest! If someone asked us to pull up a picture we’re proud of (that shows only us), we might be scrolling and searching for hours… We get so busy with life, kids, careers, etc., that we often put ourselves on the back burner. But every woman deserves self-portraits she loves—photos she’s proud to show off! Show the special lady in your life just how much you love her for who she is by gifting a portrait session just for her!

I still have glamour shots of my own mom that I adore. I think they’re such a beautiful reflection of her, and I can tell she felt beautiful and confident while taking them, too.

More than likely, these portraits will get passed down to future family members over the years, and she deserves to have photos of herself that she actually likes.

You can gift her a day of relaxation.

Our new studio is neutrally styled as a warm, inviting lake house. During her session, she can relax and enjoy the views, fresh air, and rippling water. Unlike traditional studio portraits you might get from a department store, our curated lakefront studio feels like a getaway. Plus, the photos always turn out so much better when you’re relaxed and having fun in a private setting.

We are so excited about our new waterfront photography studio in New Jersey, and we would love for you to help us break it in. If you’re at a loss for what to gift your wife, mother, or special lady in your life for Mother’s Day or any other special occasion, you can’t go wrong with a portrait session by the lake where she’ll feel beautiful, empowered, and refreshed!
