For the Book Lover - Your Family in Pictures by Me Ra Koh
This book is full of photo recipes for capturing all of those special moments with your family. From holidays, to self portraits, this book has you covered. And you might even see a photo or two of mine in their!
For the Knowledge Lover - A Spot in my January Photography Workshop for Moms!

For the Fashionista - Kelly Moore Camera Bag
Forget the ugly black camera bags that scream, I have a camera in here! Kelly Moore Camera bags are beautiful, with a style for every woman. (I have the Mimi in Lavender). The insides allow versatility to carry your gear and even a diaper or two if needed! The Kate (shown left) is on my wish list this year!
For the Budding Photographer - "Nifty Fifty" or a 50 f/1.4 Lens This is my go-to lens for capturing my own family. It's lower price point makes it a great way to upgrade your camera gear without breaking the bank. And she will love the images she can capture with the ability to shoot at an f/1.4! Imagine those blurry, buttery backgrounds!
For the Comfort Seeker - Camera Strap Cover
Add style and comfort to her camera with a camera strap like this one here. There are tons of cute patterns and fabrics so you can match her style. Some of them (like the one shown) even have lens cap holders built in. Genius!
For the Family Lover - Custom Album from your Neyssa Lee Photography Session!
Let her cherish her family images in a custom, panoramic album. These albums are my new favorite product offering. They not only can include your entire gallery, but they help to really tell the story of your family. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on ordering your own custom album.
*Want something smaller. How about a mini-accordion album? They come in all types of designs whether you want to be festive, classic or modern!
For the Historian - Digital Project Life
A fellow photographer introduced me to Digital Project Life for my personal yearly family albums and I'm so in love! Instead of the boring plain white backgrounds of regular photo books, Digital Project Life is a mix of Scrapbooking and Digital Photo books (See the photo for a sample from last year's album!). There are so many fun templates and patterns you can use, there is a kit just right for everyone. Note: Knowledge of Photoshop is required for Digital Project Life.
*I recently discovered the Digital Project Life App and love the ease and speed I can create simple pages with the tap of my finger on my phone!
For the Coffee (or Tea) Lover - Camera Lens Tumbler
Let her show off her love of photography with these cute coffee tumblers. They come in both Canon and Nikon versions for whichever camera she uses!
For the Proud Parent (or Grandparent) - A Professional Canvas
Forget 8x10 prints, help her make a statement with a beautiful professional canvas. I can help you select the right size and perfect image from your gallery that she will love. The printer I use is of the highest quality, with vibrant colors, and fully backed. These canvases will last for years to come.
*Trust me, this one will make her cry. Derek surprised me with a wall display on Milo's first Christmas. I still remember the feeling of opening such a special gift.
For the Shopper - Neyssa Lee Photography Gift Certificate
Who doesn't love receiving gift certificates? It means you get to treat yourself to something special later on, and pick out exactly what you want! With a studio gift certificate she can set up a family photo session for the spring time, or pick out a mini session, or a canvas or album of her own.
