To mark her daughter's fifth birthday, Austin-based photographer Jaime Moore created a series of portraits of Emma. The girl poses as Helen Keller, Amelia Earhart, Susan B. Anthony, Jane Goodall and Coco Chanel. The last portrait is of her own glorious self--running for president. Moore writes on her blog:
I noticed quite a pattern of so many young girls dressing up as beautiful Disney Princesses...Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Disney Princesses....
It started me thinking about all the REAL women for my daughter to know about and look up too, REAL women who without ever meeting Emma have changed her life for the better....……..so let’s set aside the Barbie Dolls and the Disney Princesses for just a moment, and let’s show our girls the REAL women they can be.
We could all try to channel some real women heroes.
