As it’s Father’s Day very soon I thought I’d put out a little shout out for the amazing Dads out there! I meet many doting Fathers in my line of work who are doing such a great job.
I love to involve the Dads when we’re in the studio, particularly in Newborn shoots where it’s good to have an extra pair of hands. I find that these guys love the chance to be involved, to be able to help and feel they’re making a difference. It might just be resting a reassuring hand on their baby’s back whilst I’m straightening the background or grabbing another prop. Plus it also allows Mum to relax a little, feed when she needs to and enjoy a bit of down time…and sometimes even a little snooze!
I also love to capture the Fathers with their new arrival. I love this set of images, I think they show a beautiful bond..
I also love to use the man’s hands to create this shot. It demonstrates how tiny and vulnerable babies are when they’re born.
I love this image and the tattoo, it kind of shows a toughness with sensitivity.
This always makes me smile, a possible sign of things to come?!
So Happy Father’s Day to all those wonderful Dads out there…ladies, make sure you spoil them 😉
Thanks for reading.
