20 Photos of Dads Being Awesome

We asked our students from the Family Retreat to show us their favourite photos of dads being their amazing selves, and we were flooded with submissions!

We were doubly proud – firstly because there is obviously so much photographic evidence of just how awesome dads are, and secondly, because these were all images captured after our students had participated in the Family Retreat.

And wow, aren’t they stunning! Our students were able to capture the essence of fatherhood in their images – the connection, the joy, the love, the fun, and the quiet moments.

If you are a family photographer and feeling stuck for poses, we have rounded up some of our favourite poses for dads with kids in this blog post. It is packed with photos of dads with various number and ages of kids – the perfect inspiration to take to your session with you.
