All About the Dads!

“What we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us.

We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.”

―Umberto Eco

This post is all about the dads! Sometimes, Dads are not super excited about being asked to be photographed with their families. Often, Dads are bribed to play along, just as their kids are. However, there is nothing sweeter than a Dad loving on his kids in photos, don’t you think? This month, I’m rounding up some of my favorite images involving Dads to showcase what they bring to our sessions and to the world.

While you’re reading, check out what my good friend and Okinawa Dad Photographer, Kristi James Photography, has to say about Dads this month! :)

Dads are great because they aren’t afraid to carry teddy bears in their packs…
