Carra Sykes is a Houston-based designer and photographer, who, in November 2012, started a photo series with her mother. The series, entitled "mother + daughter," showcases the similarities between the two women.

"This is a continuing photo series with my mom and me," Carra writes on her website. "It is inspired by my uncle always joking with my mom and asking her if she is wearing my clothes."


In the photos, Carra and her mother, Marti, wear the same clothes and strike the same pose in the same spot. We love the quirkiness of the project and hope to see more soon.

Check out the photo series below.
