67. It seems that this mother and daughter did the same thing last year and are creating again this year

Well worth a look.

The series above was from two years ago.

Some talented, thoughtful, and creative people in that family.

I can already see a very powerful and confident woman in that young child's face.

I hope her is future is as bright as I imagine it to be as I look at these pictures.

34. This is quite doable, I'd bet.

My cousin was a very middle middle class person who had lost her job and needed direction. She worked with her therapist to get ideas of what abused children needed and how she could support them. She started writing a book, got her daughter to draw lots of pictures of all types of little girls, filled it full of love and support and great advice, took it around and got advice and after re-writes, eventual approval from 4 different child therapists who specialized in abused patients. Her book got published and is now used in schools and by therapists. Most of her sales have been therapists ordering her books for their patients, but churches, schools and individuals are also buying. From this success, she has gone on to publish 4 self-help books for children. She has zero knowledge of the industry, no connections, just a desire to do something positive. I bet a similar approach, maybe going to art schools or Black HIstory Professors, would work to make a book out of these, maybe with the picture upfront, then a chapter about each?? Anyway, just a suggestion for sharing these spectacular and beautiful photos, if you want to do that.

Whatever you decide to do or not, thank you so much for sharing these with us.

she is doing a lot more than dressing up as her role models.
She is also modeling their expressions and gravitas
