'Evie Lou and Laura Jane' is a photo series, captured by American photographer Noelle McCleaf, that captures the complex and intimate relationship between her mother and her best friend and kindred spirit. The two women describe themselves as "alike with an honored difference" and are depicted as signifying an under-represented segment of American society -- aging women with charisma, vibrant energy and an understanding of our place in the world.

While Laura Jane is a 'medical intuitive' and excellent story teller, Evie Lou is a healer who follows Native American spirituality and tenets. By photographing these two fascinating women, McCleaf effectively shares the collective stories of these two larger-than-life maternal figures.

This photo series follows Noelle McCleaf's previous work 'A Bee in Her Bonnet', which focuses on the mother-daughter relationship.
