Always Mother, Forever Friend
The Xu Women Portraits by Fen Soong

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. – Washington Irving

I love the bond that the girls in the Xu family have. Not only are the daughters, Cecil and Isable, the best of friends, their mother is also a part of that friendship. The bond between this mother and her two daughters and sweet and pure, and I simply couldn’t stop from capturing the moments they share. Their relationship is so inspiring, it makes us question the popular belief that mothers and daughters will never see eye-to-eye. I’m sure that while at some point in time they might have experienced conflict, it’s how they resolve it that makes all the difference. Today, the Xu Girls hang out together, go for a weekend getaway together, take trips around the world together they do most everything together. Now isn’t that a beautiful thing to witness? I most certainly think so.

Love,

Fen
