MM MAMA | SUZANNE
Introducing a new chapter to The Journal that is very close to our hearts. A series of imagery & interviews with the people most special to us and those that have influenced our journey with Mountain & Moon in the greatest ways possible. Our family & loved ones provide countless support, advice and inspiration, and we would not be who we are today without them.
Essentially, this is an ode to those who we adore, and we hope you love to delve deeper with us into our lives and the stories of those who have helped shaped MM alongside us from the beginning.
Suzanne Cameron is the epitome of a Statement Woman. A beautiful mama to Ashton and wife to John, she is the rock of the family and the type of woman who welcomes you into her home so warmly that you find yourself never wanting to leave. Born in the small town of Chakradharpur, and growing up in the city of Calcutta, she was always enamoured by the beauty of the Bengali women she was surrounded by. The way they dressed, the colours they embraced and the layers of jewellery they adorned themselves with. When the Cameron family moved to Australia she was herself the quintessential Bengali woman but modernised, and always putting her own twist on the style that she wore so well.
She is strong, kind, nurturing, patient, creative, and above all, selfless. Suzanne is a woman we love and admire deeply and who harbours qualities we aspire to carry one day as mothers ourselves.
Ashton photographed and interviewed her mama in her beautiful home on a sunny Spring afternoon in October. Suzanne chose her gorgeous outfits and adorned herself in MM jewels in a way that suited her the most. After we finished shooting we sat in the kitchen eating dahl & rice and chatted about our lives. These are moments we treasure the most.
