“So my amazing daughter, Emma, turned 5 last month, and I had been searching everywhere for new-creative inspiration for her 5yr pictures. I noticed quite a pattern of so many young girls dressing up as beautiful Disney Princesses, no matter where I looked 95% of the “ideas” were the “How to’s” of how to dress your little girl like a Disney Princess…We chose 5 women (five amazing and strong women), as it was her 5th birthday but there are thousands of unbelievable women (and girls) who have beat the odds and fought (and still fight) for their equal rights all over the world”

It hasn’t always been a bed of roses; it’s been a struggle with her, especially during my teen years, but I can’t deny all of the great things she’s taught me over the years. I can’t believe I’m not there to celebrate with her! I promise to never take that for granted.
