Introducing Celebrate Mothers

The Mother's Day project to make sure YOU aren’t an invisible part of their childhood.

What Is It?

How do we book?

Celebrate Mother's creates beautiful artwork of a busy mom and her children, so she can look back when her children have grown and not regret that she was always behind the camera.

You can see our available session dates and times and reserve your session at this link. You will need to fill out the “day/time” in the empty box, and check out with a credit card.

What should we wear?

We will send out detailed instructions on how to dress after you book your session! We will talk about why you SHOULDN’T “matchy-match” perfectly, and instead, how to balance a color palette of multiple colors and patterns to look great together.

What is the 8x10 artists choice word & image collage?

How do I use my print credit and order more prints from the session?

When should we arrive?

What happens if we need to cancel or reschedule?

Can I give this session as a gift to my wife or mother?

Can I include me, my kids, my mother, my siblings, and my grandmother?

Can I include my husband or partner?


It is a collage of you and your child/children’s answers from the session. We scan the documents and put them in a collage with our favorite image from the session. This 8x10 is printed on Metal, has an easel back and is heartwarming, and really what the session is all about!


2-3 days after your session, we will place 6-10 images from your session online. We will notify you through email, and you will have two weeks to use your print credit and order your images. The online gallery will only be available for two weeks from the time you are notified.


We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before your scheduled session time, so that you can fill out your question. Since the sessions are on such a tight schedule, anyone arriving more than 5 minutes late for their session will forfeit their session retainer.


Because we have such a limited time frame for these portraits, the session retainer is non-refundable. If we have more available dates specific to the Celebrate Mother’s sessions, we can reschedule as long as you give us at least 48 hours notice. No-shows forfeit the entire session retainer. Anybody more than 5 minutes late for their session will forfeit their session retainer.


Absolutely! Just go through the checkout process and book at this link, using your own information. After you successfully purchase the session, pop me an email at dan@danmcmahonphoto.com letting me know you are using this as a gift. At that point I’ll mail you a certificate you can give as a gift.


You sure can, however, any group with more than 5 people need to purchase two back-to-back sessions. A larger group will take longer to photograph, to fill out the question and answer form, etc. You will get the complete benefit of two sessions (double the product credit and two identical word and image collages)


You can email or call us about a traditional portrait session if you would like a complete set of family portraits with your husband or partner. These sessions also include portraits of your children together, individuals of your children, and you and your partner.
