The Gift of Family Photos

More often than not, mom is the one behind the camera rather than in front of it. Give her the gift of being the star of a set of family photos that she doesn't have to plan! Portland-area photographer Rachel Salisbury is offering a holiday deal of 10 photos that can be used for family portraits, mom and me sessions or a couples session at a sale price of $175.
