You may remember an old story I featured on F Stop Lounge called, “Real Women: Forget the Disney Pricesses“, well photographer Jaime C. Moore has decided to expand on her original photo shoot. The project is called “The Not Just a Girl Project’.
Back in May Jaime photographed her daughter Emily on her fifth birthday with the intention to teach her the value of amazing women who had fought hard for the things, things that made the country she was born into a place of equal rights. The photos and stories instantly went viral after I featured them. News sites like CNN, CBC, The Huffington Post, The NY Daily News, UK Mirror all shared the amazing story.
After learning that Jamie had a project going on Indiegogo I got in touch with her for a interview to find out more about the project.
Leigh Diprose: I first wrote about your blog post “Not Just A Girl…” a day after it was published. What has changed for you and your daughter since then?
Jaime C. Moore: It has been a wild year since publishing Emma’s series. We have heard from hundreds & hundreds of inspired people from all over the world, Emma’s series has been published in many magazines/books and we recently welcomed a CBS news crew to our home (with Lee Woodruff) for a televised interview. But really…not too much has changed in our day-to-day home life.
Leigh Diprose: I see you have started a project on the crowd funding platform Ingiegogo called “the Not Just A Girl Project” can you tell us what it’s about?
Jaime C. Moore: Yes, we have been working hard to expand the idea of the series, NOT Just A Girl but we can’t do it alone.
We would like to expand the series by photographing many girls while reaching out to any and all ethnicity, culture and women of inspiration.
