Fearless, wild, confident, kind, independent—a photographic celebration of girls ages 5 to 18 being their authentic selves.
Photographer Kate T. Parker captures girls in all their creative, fierce, loud, silly glory. Adapted from the book of the same name, Strong Is the New Pretty Calendar is a perfect present for daughters, nieces, sisters, coaches, mentors, teachers, and friends—what’s better than enriching young minds with the gift of confidence?
Each month features a girl who embodies the beauty in being resilient, brave, and hardworking—from dancers to fencers, from musicians to gardeners, from student body presidents to soccer players.
Each masterfully shot photo (in both color and black and white) is paired with an inspiring quote from the subjects themselves. Like Tayla, age 6, a backyard adventurer: “Yeah, I am a little muddy. So what?” And Carlie, age 12, a football player: “If you’re strong on the inside, it means nobody can break you down.”
