there are several possibilities.

You might use a form with an file upload form control and the mailto scheme
uri as action. It depends on the user agent and the mail program wether that
works or not.

And you might simply add the attachment with your mailer the mailto scheme
opens. The behaviour and the availability of attachments depend on the user
agent, means browser and mailer.

As I know (but maybe I am not right) it is impossible to use mailto schemes
that include attachments by theirselfs. And if I was the designer of the
mailto schemes, I wouldn't allow that, anyway, for security reasons.
