The purpose of this book is to honor young athletes who are otherwise overlooked. We used a photographic technique called low key black & white portraiture to capture the beauty and determination of girls ages 4 - 14 from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Hundreds of hours and countless photo shoots went into the creation of this collection.

Inspired by the hard work shown by the young girls participating in a variety of sports ranging from dance to swimming to boxing and many others.  In this book you will see the faces of determination and confidence.  The book is comprised of over 150 high quality black and white photograph with minimal text.  It celebrates this point in the lives of these energetic, adventurist and beautiful young girls.  Who are empowered by strength and determination and not there looks.   They are adventurous, funny and full of life.
