Father’s Day is a bit rough around my house. I mean, my husband is usually working or just getting off from work and both of us have lost our dads. It’s almost a second birthday for him because, well, it’s just him. Not that I mind one bit.
Father’s Day reminds me to pay attention to the amazing dads I see all over the place, not just in front of my camera either (when they are expected to be on their best behavior, hehe). I see them at drop off and pick up from school. I see them serving on the PTA and coaching on the baseball field. I see them in the graduation stands yelling the loudest at the sound of their kid’s name. I am always warmed by it.
This was the first father-son session I was asked to do in over five years. Dad handled it completely on his own. His son is graduating from 6th grade and moving on to middle school. What a perfect milestone to capture! And what an even better relationship to spotlight! He obviously understands the precipice they are at which they are standing, even if the kid has some to no idea. My hat is off to this dad for his dedication to his son.
Oh! I found this article about strengthening father-son relationships and thought it was worthy of a share! Enjoy!
