Mothers and Daughters { Malibu Family Portrait Photographer }

Mothers and Daughters have a super special relationship. Although some are not the mini-me’s we were expecting, they still are often mirrors, good or bad (LOL) of ourselves. But there’s always this special feeling of recognition, seeing parts of yourself in another body.

I did a shoot for this family right before the 4th of July, and I was so touched by the relationship of the mother and daughter that I thought they deserved their own special blog post and gallery. Like former mermaids, broken from a spell, touching land with their feet for the first time (I know, it’s a little much, but they really did seem quite mermaidish and magical), they danced and leaped through the air.  Here are some imperfectly perfect shots.
