The American dream is alive and well in the United States, right? Well, it is for Suzanne Heintz, a self-proclaimed spinster who was fed up with all the questions of marriage and kids. Answering back, Heintz has created Life Once Removed, a photo series that depicts the photographer in a very rosy light, complete with a mannequin husband and child.

You’ll see very romantic encounters, family outings and  mundane activities all captured in this series that rejects the notion that ‘to be a successful woman means that you have to fulfill a laundry list of achievements, not limited to an education, career, home, family, accomplishment, and enlightenment’.
