Must-See: This Dad Took Photos of His Daughter Dressed as History-Making Women

Photographer Marc Bushelle created a photo series called "The Heroines Project," featuring his daughter Lily dressed up as history-making women.

The result is absolutely adorable.

According to Upworthy, Bushelle wanted to do the photo series as an opportunity to spend quality time with his wife and daughter and to 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."

Buschelle and his wife feel that the photos are inspirational, educational and reflect the importance of empowering young children through art.
