Photographer Marc Bushelle, who’s also the proud father of his subject, Lily, created this photo series, called “The Heroines Project,” because he both wanted to spend quality family time with his wife and daughter and teach his daughter about strong heroines in history.
“I thought this also could be a great way to build her confidence and sense of self worth,” Bushelle told Upworthy. “This series was inspired by another photographer who did something similar with her daughter.”
