When her daughter Emma turned five recently, photographer Jaime Moore wanted to celebrate with a creative photo session. The ideas she saw online were almost all too Disney and princessy for Moore’s taste, so she came up with her own idea to teach her daughter about real-life women whose accomplishments are worth emulating, not by having a princess party. The results are a thing of beauty.
With a photo of Grace Kelly as its hook, the book is quite refreshing in that even the most obvious choices—i.e. Marie Antoinette, Kate Middleton, Grace Kelly, and Queen Rania—are given a very personal touch by disclosing a more intimate view of their lives rather than an expose a la lifestyles of the rich and famous.
