The photographer Kate Parker from Atlanta have taken amazing pictures of her two daughters Ella, 9, and Alice, 6. She wants to capture them in the way she looks at them – as strong individuals. The name of the photo album is "Strong Is The New Pretty".
The series of pictures have been spread by several media companies during last week and is praised by thousands of people.
This is Kate Parker’s own words on the pictures:
“I wanted to do this to show their boldness, strength and beauty – just like they are. My girls know that whoever they are, they are perfect. Their stupid, adventures, frustrating, happy, athletics, violent, and funny oneself. They don’t need to do their hair, have matching clothes, or even be clean to be loved and accepted. Strong is the new pretty”.
Earlier, Parker has taken photos of a group of girls in seventh grade who challenge gender roles by every week playing against boy’s in soccer. To more of Kate Parker’s photos, visit her website or her Facebook page.
