The Mother Daughter Bond

When Naida told me she wanted to come to Vancouver, WA to be photographed and have portraits taken with her mother, I was joyously shook with the honor of creating these images for them. This is one of my favorite things in the world to do… here’s something I read recently that I’d like to share with you:

“The relationship between a woman and her mother is so powerful, it affects everything from her health and self-esteem to all her other relationships. The mother-daughter relationship is the most powerful bond in the world, for better or for worse. It sets the stage for all other relationships.” 

“I’m a big believer in mother-daughter time. I think we underestimate how important it is for mums and daughters to do things together…” 

“Start mother-daughter traditions, such as going on long walks together, dining at a favorite restaurant or spending time together updating family photo albums. Go shopping together. Make something together - cookies, a cake, an egg-carton caterpillar. Watch a movie together, even if it’s just at home on the couch.”

I’d like to add being photographed together! Spend the day, get dressed up, get hair and makeup done, sip something bubbly together and end up with a beautiful package of photos and wall portraits for your home to pass down.

Naida is also a photographer building her business in her new home town of Hood River. Her mother is spending the next few months here… she lives in Texas.
Here are their beautiful photos…
