Photographer Mother Shoots Daughter As Great Historical Women

Just wonderful. Happy Mothers Day.

Photographer Jaime Moore’s daughter, Emma, turned five last month. She wanted to do a project for her to mark the big birthday. And she wanted to do something NOT related to Disney Princesses. From Moore’s website :

…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. 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 and that’s what REALLY matters. I wanted her to know the value of these amazing women who had gone against everything so she can now have everything. We chose 5 women (five amazing and strong women), as it was her 5th birthday but there are thousands of unbelievable women (and girls) who have beat the odds and fought (and still fight) for their equal rights all over the world……..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.

Bravo. Lisa Simpson would be proud.
Make sure and also read the quotes under the beautiful portraits.

Moore also shot Emma as a future Presidential candidate.
See that photo here.

And see all of Moore’s work at her website.
