Photographer and mother Jaime Moore searched high and low for creative inspiration to take photos of her 5-year-old daughter Emma but found most of the ideas were how to dress your little girl like a Disney princess. It got her thinking about some real women for her daughter to look up to, whether that be a pilot, a doctor, or even an astronaut.

Then she did what I can only describe as kick-ass. Below are the five inspirational women she dressed her daughter as. Then scroll down to see the bonus sixth photo because it made me smile so much.

 

Susan B. Anthony

“Forget conventionalisms, forget the world thinks of you stepping out of your place, think your best thoughts, speak your best words, work your best work, looking to our own conscience for approval. I had rather…make history than write it. Failure is impossible.” 

 

Coco Chanel

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different. Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself. A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.” 

 

Amelia Earhart

“Now and then women should do for themselves what men have already done – occasionally what men have not done – thereby establishing themselves as persons, and perhaps encouraging other women toward greater independence of thought and action. Some consideration was a contributing reason for my wanting to do what so many wanted to do.” 

 

Helen Keller

“Be of good cheer. Do not think of today’s failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere, and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost. What I am looking for is not out there, it is in me.”

 

Jane Goodall

“My family has very strong women. My mother never laughed at my dream of Africa, even though everyone else did because we didn’t have any money, because Africa was the “dark continent”, because I was a girl. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” 

 

The photographer's daughter, Emma.

“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.”
