I have a soft spot for mother/daughter relationships, probably because I spent so much time with my Mum growing up. They are a mix of love and turmoil, calm one minute and stormy the next. It is a powerful and beautiful thing when all the girls have is each other but it is also a relationship that is often filled with struggle. We don't like to admit it but there are often many similarities between us daughters and our mothers and this causes many moments of 'head-butting' along the way. As a child (teenager in particular) I remember epic battles with my own mother, ones that were strong enough to destroy any other relationship, however, luckily for me a mother's love prevails. It is a relationship that if it survives the formative years only strengths with time, especially when we become mothers ourselves, at least this is how it worked in my case.
It was a real pleasure to get to spend the afternoon with this gorgeous duo and witness a glimpse of their life together. It is a relationship on in its early stages and while I can see many challenges ahead (due to strong wills and personalities) I think this is one bond that will only grow stronger. It was a great chance to finally meet this little girl, get to know her and witness the beauty of her personality, I am grateful I got the chance.
This session is an Intimately Yours session. It is for 1 - 2 people and normally takes places in-home, however, there is the option to make it an outdoor session. It is for 40min - 1 hour and it perfect for capturing your dearest relationships. If this sounds like something you, you can find more info here or fill out the form below.
