Jaime Moore wanted to do something special for her daughter’s fifth birthday photo, but when she looked online, all she could find were princess tutorials.
“Now don’t get me wrong,” she says on her site, “I LOVE Disney Princesses… But it got me thinking, they’re just characters, a writers tale of a princess (most before 1998)…an unrealistic fantasy for most girls,” except, she admits, for Kate Middleton. “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.” So she and her daughter decided to do a series of photos with five historical women who fought to get Jamie, Emma, and a lot of other women the rights and opportunities they enjoy today. And those pictures? They’re great.
