I didn’t grow up obsessed with the whole Disney Princess thing.
Yes, there are a couple good ones, but the lack of diversity among them didn’t really speak to me. Also, dressing up in an antebellum gown, pretending to be vulnerable, waiting to be saved by a man…YAWN.
I guess it’s good I don’t have girls or that my boys aren’t into princesses (aside from B trying to look up their dresses to see private parts).
Texas photographer and mom, Jaime Moore had a brilliant idea for a photo shoot for her daughter’s 5th birthday.
While searching for online inspiration, only Disney Princess images came up. Jaime decided she wanted inspiration more attainable than an unrealistic fairy-tale fantasy.
She and daughter Emma decided to emulate 5 female role models-REAL WOMEN– girls can aspire to be like.
They decided on: Susan B. Anthony, Coco Chanel, Amelia Earhart, Helen Keller and Jane Goodall.
Jamie says, ““My daughter wasn’t born into royalty, but she was born into a country where she can now vote, become a doctor, a pilot, an astronaut, or even President if she wants…I wanted her to know the value of these amazing women who had gone against everything so she can now have everything.”
The photo shoot was appropriately titled, “Not Just A Girl“.
The pictures are beyond amazing.
I’d say five year old Emma is already in the running to join the ranks of these inspirational women.
Great job Mom!
Take that Cinderella!!!!
