Happy Father’s Day to the Photo Reluctant Dad!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! I know that as a family photographer I might not be your favorite person. Trust me I know, my husband Dan told me that there isn’t a fun way to take pictures so I get where you’re coming from. But I sure am grateful for you. Thanks for showing up for cake smashes, senior photos, newborn sessions, and family photos. Because even if you don’t like taking photos, you know that having family photos matters and that the people in those photos matter the most. So thank you! There are a couple more things I’d like to thank you for…

  • Thanks for wearing what you’ve been asked to wear to pictures without complaining.

  • Thanks for going along with my prompts and playing with your kids, hugging your wife, and laughing at my jokes.

  • Thanks for carrying elaborate props for cake smash sessions to different photo locations.

  • Thanks for making your kids and wife feel comfortable during photo sessions even if you don’t necessarily feel that way yourself.

  • Thanks for doing the jobs around the house that no one else likes. For example in my house, it’s taking out the trash and washing the dishes. (Shout out to Dan the MVP)

  • Thanks for being the biggest contributor to any group hug.

  • Thanks for letting me into your homes and lives so I can capture your laughing, happy, and growing family in a fun and silly way.

  • Thanks for the Dad jokes. (Someone had to say it, and I’m not going to lie I think they’re actually pretty funny.)

I hope you have a wonderful Father’s Day with your family. I can’t wait to see you at your upcoming photography session!
