Mom Photographs Girls As Princesses and Athletes to Prove a Point

Heather Mitchell is a photographer from Alabama who found the most creative way to show her daughter that she can be whoever she wants to. She took her young daughter together with friends to her studio and dressed them up as princesses and athletes at the same time.

The final result is absolutely adorable. The girls are wearing gorgeous taffeta dresses and tiaras, while also holding baseball gloves and basketballs. Mission accomplished!

“One of the moms told me (my daughter) was not athletic — that she was a girly girl. I couldn’t sleep that night. All I could think was, ‘Why does she have to choose? Our daughters do not have to choose,'” Mitchell shared with TODAY Parents. “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.”
