Saint Kate Hotel: Simone Ball Room A

The relationship between a mother and a daughter is complicated. As an adult, I am relearning who my mother is, not as my mother, but as her own person filled with hopes, dreams, and worries.

Seeing my mother age is a beautiful and terrifying experience. Coming to terms with my mother's mortality has lead me to reconsider our relationship. This project is our way of revisiting the past as a way to understand the future. In this series, I am finding what's changed between both of us; rediscovering the complicated history we share as mother and daughter. What used to be strained, silent, and untrusting has changed into acceptance, vulnerability, and growth. Love you More, is an ongoing exploration of the openness and intimacy of a relationship as mother and daughter and photographer and subject.
