A couple of years ago I started a personal project called ‘Me and Mine'. It’s all about capturing that beautiful, beautiful mother and daughter bond. I chose a handful of Mum’s and their daughters whose relationship seemed super close and connected, like me and my Mum had.
I lost my mum to cancer 9 years ago and was and is one of the hardest things I have ever had to go through. It has been overwhelming and unbearably painful. Doing this personal project for me was quite healing as it made me appreciate how fricking blessed I am that I had such a close relationship with my Mum which I am aware some girls never experience.
I used to get extremely jealous seeing Mum’s and daughters together- I didn’t want to feel like this. This is why I decided to do this, to see if it would somehow help. It has. I still get a sinking feeling in my stomach when I see girls my age with their Mum but it feels less heavy then it once did.
I hope you can get something out of these photos like I do.
