History was made on Inauguration Day 2021.

Kamala Harris broke monumental barriers becoming the first woman, Black and South Asian American to be sworn in as vice president of the United States.

Following Harris' election win, Nikki Cee, a photographer, told Today that a mother came to her to do a presidential-themed photoshoot for her daughter. However, Cee was hesitant that she would be able to pull it off.

“To be honest, I was scared. I didn’t think I would do it justice. So I had told her, ‘No’ at first,” Cee said. “And she was like, ‘No, no, no. You can do it.’”

Cee, the 35-year-old owner of N Cee Photography from Bowie, Maryland, knew the mother had an excellent idea.

“She just wanted a presidential theme but then it was even more special once we realized that (Sen. Kamala Harris) won,” she explained. “So I was like, ‘Oh, yeah. We’ve definitely got to do this now.’”

On December 17, baby Regan Adams arrived for her photoshoot in a pink pantsuit and pearls.

Cee explained how she felt honored to take pictures that highlighted Harris’ historic win and stressed the importance of having a woman leader who is Black and South Asian American.

“Representation matters,” she said. “It is just really important.”

Regan's mother, Kendall Maloney, agreed and elaborated on the motivation behind having her daughter, who turned one earlier this month, pose in the photos.

"I wanted her to always be able to look back at these pictures and know that we as her parents are setting her up to let her know that she can be anything she wants in life," Maloney told "Good Morning America." "That as a woman and as a young Black woman, she can be anything she puts her mind to."
