Existing in Photos with your Father
Lately, I’ve written a lot about the importance of mothers and daughters existing in photos together. I even had my own mom in the studio so we’d have beautiful portraits together as adults. But with Father’s Day approaching, and looking through the many sessions I’ve photographed, I’ve yet to photograph a formal portrait session with a father and his son or daughter.
Why? First, mom is typically behind the camera. There are likely many images of dad with his children on your cell phone. But there is a difference between a quick cell phone picture and a formal portrait. There is a difference between a digital image and a printed portrait that you can touch and hang up on the wall. Second, men just don’t seem to have the need to be photographed like women do. They want to get in and out as soon as possible. :) But it is just as important for dads to exist in photos as it is for moms.
