WHAT TYPE OF DAD ARE YOU?
I thought it would be fun to review the different types of Dad I get to meet! I love to get Dads in my photos, and Mums for that matter, as it’s important to document your life as well as your childrens’. So tell me, what type of Dad are you? And more importantly, do your children have enough candid images of you simply being you?
THE ‘FUN LOVING’ DAD
Just look at their faces! Utter joy on the Dad’s face and complete resentment on his son’s as he’s not allowed to pedal! This image still makes me chuckle and I know it’s one of the family’s favourites too!
THE ‘REASSURING’ DAD
Occasionally photo shoots can be a little daunting for children, so this lovely Dad took some time out to reassure his son. I got to work photographing his older sisters and when I turned around to check on them, I found them enjoying a reassuring cuddle inside a rustic folly. It became one of my all time favourite images that season and I’m glad to say the hug did the business! This wonderful little chap was soon very eager for me to photograph him instead of his sisters!
THE ‘ALWAYS THERE TO LISTEN’ DAD
This is my son’s Dad! I just love the way they’re positioned on either side of the frame yet the eyes pull the image together! I have no idea what my husband and son were talking about, and sometimes it’s best not to know!
THE ‘I’LL SAVE YOU’ DAD
When you’re lost in the middle of a huge maze, who ya gonna call? Dad-busters of course! Is it me or are child’s eyes and outstretched hand almost reaching out beyond the screen for help? I’m glad to say they both found their way safely out of the maze and were quickly onto the next adventure – climbing the biggest trees imaginable!
THE ‘FULL OF SMILES’ DAD
This is a sneak peek from one of this year’s bluebell photo shoots! This Dad had the biggest grin imaginable, even though I asked him to “move to the left a bit, no back to the right a bit, actually back to the left a smidgen” until I’d got him sat in the perfect shady spot located between the two trees in the distance! And I’m glad to say the family ordered this lovely image as part of their final gallery!
THE ‘PROUD AS PUNCH’ DAD
If you follow local blogger A Little Piece of Me you’ll know this family rarely sit still! They are more active and adventurous than any family I know which is why I’m so glad they took a few relaxing moments out of their busy schedule to enjoy a family photo shoot with me! And this Dad certainly has a lot to be proud of as his girls are simply adorable!
THE ‘NEW’ DAD
Candid moments such as this are amongst my favourite styles of photography! Taken at a family party, this new Dad was so proud to show off his baby son! They both look so dapper for the occasion and I can’t wait to meet them again later this summer when I photograph another of their wonderful family parties!
So what type of Dad are you? Perhaps you deserve a category I’ve not even listed yet? Why not book a shoot with me and ensure your children have a collection of beautiful images to one day share with their children!
