Photographer Proves That You Can Be a Girly Girl and An Athlete At the Same Time

Alabama based photographer, Heather Mitchell, was inspired by her two daughters in a recent photoshoot. Her viral series shows young girls dressed up in frilly dresses and accessorized with athletic gear.

“We were at practice a few weeks ago and I was talking with the other moms,” she recalled. “I was saying that I hoped Paislee learned to love the game because she was athletic. One of the moms told me that she 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?’”

“I played every sport my school offered and wore lipstick to every game,” Mitchell continued. “So the next day, we went to the studio and created her shot. I seriously only spent about three minutes shooting because I knew exactly what I wanted.”

“I posted them to my personal Facebook and had tons of requests so we added two days to our schedule and they sold out in one hour. So I added two more days and they sold out too. These photos were my daughter and some of the girls from the first day of shoots. I have three more days next month!”
