I took a slow motion video of my niece Callia on Father's Day last year and pulled this image of her off of one of the screen grabs. It's such a fun picture of her, capturing the freestyle spirit of a 5-year-old, that I wanted to play with that and put her in the most outrageous and cool situations imaginable. My sister, Nicole, has dubbed this empowering figure as the Ninja Warrior pose and it has really taken on a personality and attitude of its own.

As a challenge to myself, every day last summer, I created a "Picture of the Day" incorporating this fun, care-free, jumping portrayal of her in the most crazy settings I can think of... whether it be running, jumping, dancing, kicking, sliding, swimming, exploring or flying.
