Who are the women you want your daughter to look up to? Photographer, Jaime C. Moore, wanted to photograph her 5-year-old daughter for her birthday but was unsatisfied with the standard barbie doll and princess dress-ups so common for this age group. Instead she chose to photograph her daughter dressed as some of the most influential women throughout history. See more of her work here.
1.” … 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.

2. “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.” - Helen Keller

5. ” … In order to be irreplaceable one must be different - life isn’t about finding yourself, it is about creating yourself - a girl should be two things: who and what she wants …” - Coco Chanel
6. “Set aside the Barbie dolls and Disney princesses for just a moment, and let’s show our girls the real women they can be.” - Jaime C. Moore
