Have you talked to your mom about this and are sure she really wants you to follow through with this tradition regarding their photo? 

Could you place the photos in frams hanging from a branch/cieling/get creative…with your parents photo WAAAAAY up at the top?

Or a collage of everyone’s photos, all different sizes, with your parents being the smallest? Place it in a location where the eye doesn’t travel?

I think if your mom is going to be hurt the photo isn’t there and you’re worried about her feelings there’s no way around having it there just clever disguises.

I think you can still do it with just the grandparents photos.  Explain that you would like to honor them in a special way. I think that your mom would appreciate the sentiment and still in keeping with the family tradition, but not causing any uncomfortable feelings.
