Come check out Kate's photos below......
"I want to make sure my girls know that who they are is enough.....I started to see patterns and recognize that the images where the girls were authentically captured were the strongest images. The images that showed the girls as they genuinely are were my favorites. After seeing this, I started to shoot with that in mind.
The project became about capturing my girls and their friends as they truly are and how that is OK. Not only OK, but worthy of celebration. There’s a lot of pressure for girls (and women) to look a certain way or act in a certain manner, and I wanted to let my daughters know that who they naturally are is enough."
(love this one!)
Of course...I had to ask what her kiddos were reading....."My girls love to read. The five year old is way into Bob books (the only ones she can read). She also loves when we read Shel Silverstein together." And Kate added that her 8 year old daughter adores the 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' series, any graphic novel, and "loves her book club at school."
Thank you so much Kate, for sharing your work! Your photos are endlessly inspiring to me, and so is your message for all of our daughters. You can visit Kate at her website, (look at her cover picture closely! there's a little person hiding under that glorious dress), on Pinterest, and on Facebook.
