She can be whoever she wants to be! Girly AND athletic, Pretty AND strong!
When Lisa approached me to do this shoot I jumped at the chance. She wanted to capture everything Lucia is at 11 and that happens to be girly AND athletic. She does Ballet AND plays football. She’s sweet AND sassy. There is a beautiful balance between being a girl and a woman that you can find at 11.
We also wanted to capture the relationship Lucia shares with her girlfriends. These three have had each other’s backs since prep. Let’s face it, where would we be without our friends! I couldn’t agree more with this advice –
“All I can tell you today is what I have learned. What I have discovered as a person in this world. And that is this: you can’t do it alone. As you navigate through the rest of your life, be open to collaboration. Other people and other people’s ideas are often better than your own. Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.” Amy Poehler
It makes me smile when I think of how these girls will view these images in 20 years.
