little girl, big world


I’m obsessed!!! This series of photos was taken by Japanese photographer Toyokazu Nagano of his 4 year old daughter Kanna. Nagano pulled a #whynot moment and rather than having a super girly photo shoot with his little girl, these images are empowering and fun. Kanna is expressing herself in all kinds of hilarious and powerful ways that I think embody a great message for little girls. The world is a big scary place but you can make it and take it because you are strong and smart and funny! I mean, a mini kimono nose-picker? I die!

He titled the collection My Daughter Kanna and you can see more of his awesome work on his Flickr page. Kids are so fun to photograph – for more on taking pictures of children see Tips on Photographing Kids.

What do you think? Awesome, right?
