In celebration of Fathers everywhere…

We cover many family portrait sessions over the course of a year, but it usually takes a little bit more persuasion to get fathers in front of the camera, rather than just standing by as an observer.

Here is a rare glimpse of a few we managed to capture in a moment of joy with their little ones. First though, a lovely quote (source unknown) we found the encapsulates what being a dad is all about.

Happy Father’s Day everyone.

What Is A Dad?

A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.

A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.

A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail…

As a photographer, I genuinely enjoy the process of taking photos – the interaction, creativity and happy clients keep me enthusiastic and innovative. Many people find it awkward having their photograph taken – I use my experience to put people at ease so that I can get the most out of them, often in a short period of time.

Over the years I have been a professional photograph, I have won both regional and national awards, and I have been awarded an LMPA from the Master Photographers Association.
