As part of our month-of-matriarchy, we invited two sets of our favorite mom-and-daughter pairs into the studio for a photo series and interview. We're sharing the images and more on Instagram all month long but meanwhile, here's a slightly deeper dive into who these phenomenal women are.
"I admire my mother due to her fierce loyalty, and the amount of love that she puts into every single thing she creates." - JeLisa Marshall
Who JeLisa is: This Seattle-based former product developer is currently in graduate school and, lucky for you, works as a style consultant. In all things, she approaches her work with a serious dedication to truth transparency, and transformation. JeLisa lives the slow fashion ethic by working with clients, colleagues, and collaborators to examine wants, needs, desires, habits, trends and more-so they can break them down, take them apart, and find ways to do better for themselves and for the planet.
"I love my oldest daughter's heart, spirit, and laughter." - Mineola Marshall
Who Mineola is: A former physical education teacher, she's now a family child care director.
What we love about Mineola: That confidence! That grace and poise! Those glasses! Mineola's presence fills the room with a grounded, good-natured calm. She made us want to raise up and be our best selves even for the few hours we spent with her at the photoshoot. It's easy to see where JeLisa gets her power and heart-and we love Mineola for that, too.
What Mineola loves about her daughter: "I love my oldest daughter's heart, spirit, and laughter."
What Mineola loves about Cura: "I love Cura because the clothes are comfortable and fit my body type."
