'Why can't one be GIRLY and ATHLETIC At The Same Time?', Argues This Photographer Mom!

Alabama-based photographer, Heather Mitchell shut down every stereotype with her latest 'You can do it all' photography series.

Have you ever wondered which category of girls you belong to? Is it the one with all the girly girls who are considered to be a princess for not playing any sports or is it the crew of tomboys for being good at it? These were the exact questions that came to a photographer and mother Heather Mitchell's mind on one fateful afternoon. While attending her daughter's softball practice she expressed how glad she would be if only her athletic daughter would learn to love the game.

This wish was immediately shut down by another who categorized her daughter as a 'girly girl'. She dismissed her youngest saying she would never be good at sports because she's a 'girly girl'. The only question that popped up in Heather's mind was the necessity of this choice. Why was it so important to choose one of the mentioned categories? Also, why can't an individual be both? This is exactly what inspired this Alabama-based photographer to create a photo series that went viral instantly!
