Mother's Day & Father's Day: Your Seasonal Selling Opportunities
Updated: Feb 7
Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are a couple of upcoming holidays that present important selling opportunities for photographers, and we’re here to help! As families grow and reach new milestones, they are presented with chances to document them through professional photo sessions. This allows for repeat business for portrait photographers! Now is the time to follow up with your previous clients and educate them about the print options available for gifting to their loved ones.
Whether you are sneakily scheming with a grown son or daughter, or if Dad is looking to surprise Mom and vice versa, bring the amazing moments you’ve captured to the forefront of their gift ideas. Your sessions are full of the most sentimental gifts, and we want to help you deliver them.
You Have a Gift...
...let’s give them the cherishable keepsakes that will bring repeat business for years to come.
A Few Favorite Photo Gift Ideas
Look out for more Photo Gift inspiration in the coming weeks, and explore our Integrated Partner list if you are not already using a gallery hosting service. Many of our partners offer automated marketing tools like email campaigns, which could lead to more print sales with minimal effort on your part! If you prefer a more hands-on approach, don’t forget about our generic website, and pricing toggles in Bay ROES and Online, for previewing print product options directly with your clients. We also recommend adding Boutique Packaging and Gift Notes to your orders for a special personalized touch upon delivery (especially perfect when paired with drop ship orders!).
Inspiration from Our Community
“I just recently added Acrylic Blocks to my products & I am in LOVE!! They are so perfect for a client's desk or in this case her work station at her hair salon. Not only can she show off her sweet Mom & Daughter photo, she is able to market for me by having a stack of my business cards right behind the acrylic block when her clients ask 'Who took that photo of you?!' Perfect design, Bay Photo!!!”

"We live in such a digital world that we often forget how moving it is to walk into a room and see a beautiful, tangible family photo. A framed image has the power to turn a house into a home and to fill you with joy. I love seeing families first react to their framed art… it’s a feeling you can’t duplicate with a screen."
