Photographer Jaime Moore's Not Just a Girl and Giveaway

Trailblazer: Pilot, Amelia Earhart 
Jaime Moore's daughter, Emma, turned five this year. For her birthday, this photographer mother always does a special photo shoot to capture memories and to celebrate this very important day in a child's life. This year, when she and her daughter were brainstorming ideas for the photo theme. Jaime noticed little girls this age dressed up as Disney princesses a lot. (Believe me, I have a four-year-old granddaughter who loves dressing up as a princess too.) 

Jaime appreciates the fantasy world these princesses live in, but she wanted Emma to know about the strong women in the real world, the great role models who could inspire her in real life.

They looked over all the fabulous women in history and chose five remarkable role models. (After all she was turning five!) They put together clothing and jewelry of the times and Emma posed just like these women did in their photographs. The resulting photos are stunning. The photos of  women's activist Susan B. Anthony, designer Coco Chanel, pilot Amelia Earhart, deaf/blind author and lecturer Helen Keller, and animal activist Jane Goodall came to life with Emma posing as these women and dressed in the clothing and jewelry of the day.

Jaime said, ".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."

Jaime entitled the photos, Not Just a Girl. You can check out her post and the photos on Jaime Moore's blog 

Who are the strong women you admire? Who would you choose to dress like and pose as that woman did in her photo?
