Today is a day we celebrate the incredible love and grace the fathers around us have given. Fathers are incredibly influential, both directly and indirectly. Children were created to respond to the influence of a father. The day a man becomes a father, his life changes. He has a role to fill, and that is to lead his family well. We have a perfect example of fatherly love through God himself.
Though there are so many images to choose from, these are some of my favorites. From becoming a new dad to holding their granddaughter’s hand, there is so much to be celebrated!Photography truly is a gift to document precious moments like these shown below because they cannot be recreated. I hope you enjoy these images and celebrate your dad, spouse, or a fatherly figure you may have!
I love how happy Riley is holding his first-born as they celebrated his first birthday!
I love how special this first look with Allison’s dad was – they couldn’t even make eye contact! It was really sweet!
I love how Ben is moving the hair out of his sweet girl’s face so they could talk.
I love how Catie and her dad had a special first look before the ceremony began! I can hear her laugh through this!
I love how Britton is looking down at baby Rhodes, admiring those tiny features.
I love how Adam is holding Ollie, helping him walk along the beach. This image means a lot because they just adopted their sweet daughter this week from India, so the time alone with Ollie will be shared with another child, but oh the joy there is ahead for their family!
I love this because Chloe could not let go of her dad. She nervously awaited her dad to enter the room so they could have a moment before the wedding and she burst into tears. Chloe is the only daughter of all her siblings, so it was a really intimate moment for her dad and her!
I love this because Brodie became a first-time dad a few weeks ago and he held his boy so tightly.
I love this image for so many reasons. It’s pretty obvious though, right? 🙂 Kendra is holding on tightly to her dad as he walks to give her away to her groom. And if this image doesn’t make you cry, I just don’t know what will.
I love this image because it’s the moment Josh saw baby Kate for the first time and Dr. Esses is just beaming!
I love this image because Mark is just enjoying the moment with Calvin as the water splashed on their feet. They were soaking up their time together on the beach before moving overseas the next week!
I love this image so much because Mackenzie’s father passed away when she was just a little girl and she carried his picture on a locket on her bouquet!
I love this image because Taylor’s dad is so content holding his daughter as they danced to their song.
I love this image because Dylan has all three of his children with him. This family is so special! And LOOK at those smiles!!
I love this image because Taylor surprised her grandfather with a dance! Tears flowing throughout, including us!
Happy Father’s Day to all! Enjoy your day and know how much of an influence you have! You are so very loved. Thank you for your example and grace you pour out.
