Celebrating Mom Campaign



Heartwarming photos of you with your kids aren’t frivolous-

they’re a necessity.

Because to them…

You’re too indispensable to be omitted from their past.

Introducing Celebrate Mothers –

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

What is it?

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.

The imagery is mixed with her hand-written words answering, “what do you want to remember most about your children at the age they are right now?” And the words or drawings of her children answering, “what do you love most about your mom?

Reserve your session HERE.

Mark your calendars for April 17th – 23rd

This year we only have 3 dates open for sessions. Be sure to book your Celebrate Mother’s Session before all of the spots are gone.

Celebrate Mother’s FAQ:

How do we book?

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 8×10 artists choice word & image collage?

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 8×10 is heartwarming, and really what the session is all about!

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

2-3 weeks 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.

When should we arrive?

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.

What happens if we need to cancel or reschedule?

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.

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

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 melissa@melissacannon.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.

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

You sure can, however, any group with more than 6 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)

Can I include my husband or partner?

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.

* Sessions are non-refundable.

* $97 (early bird) or $127 (regular) is the session retainer.

* Portrait credit must be used within 2 weeks of the online gallery of images going online. After that time, the credit will be forfeited.
