A mother that also happens to be a photographer was at her daughter’s softball practice, where she was told by another mother that her daughter “was not athletic — that she was a girly girl”.
Heather told Today that she “couldn’t sleep that night. All I could think was, ‘Why does she have to choose?’”
The very next day she brought her daughter to her studio and took pictures of her dressed up as both a princess and an athlete. When other local mothers saw the pictures, they were in awe and asked the mother to do the same thing to their daughters as well.
And as you can see in the photos below, the result were nothing short of amazing.
“Our daughters do not have to choose,” she added. “My parents taught me that I could be anything I wanted growing up. I didn’t realize until I was much older that everyone is not that blessed.”
