Carra Sykes' Photography Series 'Mother + Daughter' Will Warm Your Heart (PHOTOS)

Photographer Carra Sykes was between jobs when she decided to work her creative muscles while spending some quality bonding time with her mother.

The collaboration, titled "Mother + Daughter," captures the similarities between two generations of Sykes women to a remarkable degree. Sykes told the Huffington Post via e-mail she developed the concept behind the shoot because her mom often borrows the young artist's clothing. We'd say this heartwarming collaboration is far superior to a temper tantrum!
