Not just a girl…..

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. Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Disney Princesses, from their beautiful dresses, perfect hair, gorgeous voices and  most with ideal love stories in the mix you can’t help but become entranced with the characters. But it got me thinking, they’re just characters, a writers tale of a princess (most before 1998)…an unrealistic fantasy for most girls (Yay Kate Middleton!).
It started me thinking about all the REAL women for my daughter to know about and look up too, REAL women who without ever meeting Emma have changed her life for the better. My daughter wasn’t born into royalty, but she was born into a country where she can now vote, become a doctor, a pilot, an astronaut, or even President if she wants and that’s what REALLY matters. I wanted her to know the value of these amazing women who had gone against everything so she can now have everything. 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……..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.

 

*NEW*  February 7, 2014 -  We are so thankful and overwhelmed by such an amazing response. Thank you so much everyone for your kind words of support & encouragement, it means the world.  Truly.   We are now hoping to expand the NOT Just A Girl Series but to do that, we need your help.

Erin Lynn Langenfeld - May 10, 2013 - 12:59 pm

This is a great idea, and the pictures are awesome, but I was surprised to read there was such a trend to dress up kids as something other than themselves for birthday portraits. My 6-year-old daughter is unique and special just the way she is: no costumes required.

A Mighty Girl - May 10, 2013 - 2:53 pm

Love it! My mother was before Disney, but she was always told A knight in shining armour will just turn up……it’s very unikely he did considering where they lived, but if he did she was long gone. She joined the air force and started a midwifery course, she eventually married, had 3 children, lived in many places. She was a woman who just faced up to what life was at the time. I think she has always been there with her attitude for me. Thanks for this post. I think since tomorrow is mothers day here, that I will do a blog post for my mother. You don’t have to be famous around the world to be important in people’s lives.

Victoria Woodhull Anderson - May 13, 2013 - 4:42 pm

I was named after the wonderfully scandalous Victoria Woodhull, a contemporary of Susan B. Anthony, and the first woman to run for president, so this is an issue dear to my heart. I think it is important that girls growing up today understand how difficult it was for these women to stand up and stand out. If today’s girls view their predecessors’ accomplishments through the lens of their own empowerment, they may not understand how truly monumental the contributions of these groundbreakers were. A bit of a catch 22 – it is a testement to the strength of these women that it is so hard today to imagine what strength it took to do what they did. Thank you for that reminder in these beautiful pictures and quotes.

Kudos to you. Your mother must’ve raised you to believe too. I have two daughters. One is 35 and the other is 26. When they were born I attempted to give them names that wouldnt classify them as women, per se. Just so when they applied for jobs they wouldnt be classified. I raised them to never give up and anything was possible. Oldest is in her final year of RN school, after being in management and seeing no guarantees. My youngest is working and going to school as well. Hoping to be able to continue survive in this crazy world we have now. Your pictures are wonderful. God Bless you and your family.

MJ Guerra - November 2, 2013 - 12:59 pm

Wonderful post!!

Very inspiring story, women need more real life heroines and less princesses.

Julie OBeirne - November 2, 2013 - 2:49 pm

Hi Jamie,

Just saw your interview on the morning news. As a 52 year old Degreed Architectural designer with credentials, who for a lifetime has not had pay equality, I applaud your work with Emma for all the young girls and boys you are educating and inspiring.

My sons now 26 and twins 24 were shocked as teens to understand that inequality between genders still exists.

Thank you.

Best Regards,
Julie O’Beirne

Basia - November 2, 2013 - 2:52 pm

I’m especially happy to see that you stayed positive about EVERYTHING! The best thing you did for Emma was your refusal to belittle or condemn the Disney Princess idea. Women need to allow each other – and all people – the freedom to love what we love, without fear of judgement. If we can’t tailor our dreams to fit ourselves without the burden of the agendas of others, we merely swap tyrants. To be truly free we must be able to be truly ourselves – pilot, princess or president.

Melissa Griffin - November 2, 2013 - 2:56 pm

Sheri - November 2, 2013 - 3:25 pm

Thank you for this beautiful idea! As the mother of a daughter turning 13, this has inspired me with some ideas for her birthday sleepover. As a teacher of Social Studies & an all girl advisory group, I am inspired to use this idea to create a photo gallery in our school -after guiding them to research & learn about heriones & role models in history.

Lovely pics. Love the disney princess characters but they belong in books and movies and not as role models. The problem with the ‘princess’ mentality is that it’s encouraged by mothers who want to be the cinderella princess themselves. There’s now a bunper crop of little girls wanting the barbie doll princess look and thinking everything should be given to them. They won’t know what it’s like to strive and work for what they want. So my hat off to you for encouraging your daughter to look at life the way it should be.

Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before but after browsing through some of the articles I realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m certainly delighted I found it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back frequently!

I wish more mothers would empower their girls and live their lives as healthy role models. Thank you for being a mom your children and society can be proud of.

These are beautiful and inspirational! It’s a great idea and you’ve executed it perfectly (it helps that you’ve got a gorgeous model)! You are a wonderful role model for Emma and I’m sure she will grow up believing she can do anything. xxx
