Mothers & Daughters – Past and Present
The love shared between a mother and her daughter knows no boundaries. Theirs is a unique bond that has stood the test of time. Mothers, women in general, have come a long way throughout history. We can’t imagine the hardships our ancestors endured, but we can imagine the lives of mothers in more recent times. With Mother’s Day around the corner, we wanted to capture what those moments may have looked like, not wanting to do just ordinary modern portraits. We hope these glimpses of mothers and daughters will stir thoughts and memories inspiring you to continue the legacies of those before you. So here’s to mothers and their daughters everywhere with love from us on Mother’s Day!
“Mothers and Daughters Past and Present” was the product of creative minds brainstorming over a lunch of hummus and pita (thanks Neomonde!). Photographer Chris Nieto, makeup artist Ashley Bromirski and hair stylist Cheri’ Leathers chose the quaint town of Apex, NC as their backdrop selecting locations to best represent each chosen decade. Staying within the town, selecting wardrobe for each era, and photographing in a style that best represented each decade were the big challenges. Photographer Chris Nieto’s goal was to give each image the natural appearance of aging as if the viewer were perusing through the decades of a classic family photo album.
