Searching for fun dress-up ideas for her daughter Emma’s annual birthday portrait in April, photographer Jaime Moore found countless examples of children decked out as Disney’s Princess Jasmine or Cinderella. “I started thinking about all the real women whom Emma should look up to rather than emulating those characters,” says Moore, from Austin, Texas. So she opted for role models who made history for their amazing accomplishments and values. “Emma’s favorite was Amelia Earhart,” Moore says. “She found flying over the ocean particularly exciting.” Moore hopes that this special experience has taught Emma that “she can be anything she wants to.” As for next year’s portrait, Moore is already brainstorming a whole new roster of female leaders. Her current favorites include Malala Yousafzai, Sally Ride, and Marie Curie.
