Put aside any opinion you may have about parents posting excessive amounts of pictures of their kids on social media: we can almost guarantee you won’t mind seeing what this adorable 3-year-old and her mom are up to.
In a post on BoredPanda, the toddler’s mom, Ashley Larson, described a project she’s been doing with her daughter, Scout, in the hopes of showing her the inner strength of women.
When Ashley’s mom, who the family calls Nonnie, was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2016, Scout was concerned for the woman she looked up to. In order to put her mind at ease, Ashley decided to giver her daughter a lesson about strong females.
That’s when she came up with the idea for a photoshoot.
The two created a list of women who they thought were strong, then picked the photos they wanted to replicate and got to work. The end results are too cute for words.
Ashley said they made sure to include both Nonnie and Scout’s favorite females, like Ellen and Moana.
"I stand for honesty , equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated, and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values, that's what I stand for. I also believe it dance." – @theellenshow ⭐️⭐️TAG @THEELLENSHOW SO SHE CAN SEE THIS ⭐️⭐️ (We normally save our twinning for #twinningtuesday but this one I couldn't wait to post! ) #theellenshow #scoutstolemystyle
Ashley wrote that the process of planning, shooting, and editing was totally worth it. Not only did the mother and daughter duo learn a lot about the women they admire, but they also spent quality time with each other and created a wonderful picture book for Nonnie, who Ashley says is now cancer-free.
Check out some of the other females Scout dressed up as.
And of course the photoshoot wasn’t complete without a few photos of Scout and Nonnie celebrating Nonnie being cancer-free!

Ashley summed up her post by writing, “… my fingers are crossed that by the time she’s old enough to understand the strength she’s portraying- women won’t be seen as delicate and dainty anymore.” One day, one day.
