Photo Series of a Young Girl Dressed Up as Great Women Throughout History
Photographer Jaime Moore‘s daughter Emma recently turned 5 years old. Naturally, being a photographer, Moore wanted to commemorate the event for her daughter by putting together a cute photo shoot for her, so she turned to the Internet for inspiration.
Much to her chagrin, however, something like 95 percent of the ideas she ran into were actually the same idea: how to dress up your 5-year-old as a Disney Princess. Moore wasn’t keen on that, so she went another way. Instead of dressing her daughter up as a made up ideal, an “unrealistic fantasy” as she put it, she chose to dress and pose her daughter as some of the greatest women throughout history.
The point was to convey to little Emma that she could be anything she wants to be. As Moore explains it on her blog:
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.
Each photo is also captioned with an inspirational quote by the amazing woman it portrays. To see all of them in higher resolution and read more about Moore’s inspiration for the project, head over to her website by clicking here.

Interesting, though I would say that true friendship is actually commitment + intimacy.
PS: Once when we were in college Liz made Julie promise she’d be her friend for ten years. I’m not gonna promise that! she said, I’m not sure why, I think it was just the way Liz was demanding it. (She can be rather … forceful … at times.)
Well, Liz got her wish, and now we’ve locked her in for life.
HEATHERS! HEATHERS! HEATHERS!
Later this summer, the United States Postal Service will release its Cash Forever stamp. And while the real deal is pretty nice, we couldn’t help but wonder how our favorite local artists and illustrators might have interpreted the Man in Black.
Here’s Stephano’s Fine Art Gallery’s take.
