Three-year-old Instagrammer recreates pictures of inspiring women
At just three years of age, little Scout Larson is an Instagram phenomenon with more than 60 thousand followers.
When three-year-old Scout Larson's grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer, her mum Ashley decided to teach her to seek inspiration from the strength of many strong women throughout history. The results have been a resounding success on Instagram, where the youngster now has a rather impressive 62.6k followers.
Ashley takes the photos of her daughter in the style of women like Adele, Emma Watson and Frida Kahlo, and also manages Scout's social media profile. The proud mum told BoredPanda that she wanted her little girl to learn how strong women can be:
"The project all started when Scout’s grandma, her Nonnie, was diagnosed with breast cancer. We were looking for a way to keep our minds busy during a really hard time.
"When Nonnie’s hair started to fall out, Scout got very concerned and I wanted to put both of our minds at ease. I needed to teach her and remind myself that women are fighters! We chose famous and fierce women to teach her about the strength that women have.
"We had put together a list of people to shoot and I taught Scout a little bit about each person. We then chose the photo we wanted to replicate together. We worked on the project for a little under a year - throughout the diagnosis, treatment, and mastectomy surgery."
Ashley says that the project was a hugely positive experience for everyone:
"Scout was learning first hand just how amazing and strong women can be. So we just kept shooting. We planned that at the end of it all, we’d make a picture book for both Scout and Nonnie.
"The entire project was such a godsend for Scout and myself. And showing my mom the end result - priceless. Every single minute I spent planning, styling, shooting, and editing was one hundred percent worth it.
"This project has probably taught me just as much or more than it taught my daughter. I truly want Scout to be able to look back at this and know that women are just as strong as any man."
