The Anita Claire Project honors the bond between mothers and daughters. The mothers and daughters honored in my project come from all walks of life and all circumstances; the good, the challenging, worldwide. As my project is ongoing and continues to grow, I recently outlined the types of mothers I am seeking to photograph and interview. I've been asked, several times, if I were to feature celebrities, who would I want to feature? Well, all of the mothers and daughters in my project are on equal ground. They come from various backgrounds, professions and circumstances, and all of them share the honorable titles of Mother and Daughter. I do have a celebrity wish list. It contains countless names. Today, I am featuring 10 of those names, and while their paths happen to have them in the public eye, it is their mother/daughter bonds I'd love to explore closer. Here they are, in no particular order:

  1. First Lady Michelle Obama, First Grandmother Marian Robinson, and daughters Sasha and Malia

  2. Priscilla Chan and daughter Maxima (Max)

  3. Tamera Mowry-Housley and daughter Ariah

  4. Holly Robison Peete, mother Dolores, and daughter Ryan

  5. Ellen Degeneres and mother Betty

  6. Beyoncé, mother Tina, sister Solange, and daughter Blue Ivy

  7. Jessica Alba and daughters Honor and Haven

  8. Arianna Huffington and daughters Isabella and Christina

  9. Rashida Jones and mother Peggy

  10. Liya Kebede and daughter Raee
