DADS– Y’all got this.

Many of my favorite family portraits are of Dads horsing around with their kids. As a photographer, these candid-style images are usually snapped without the Dads (or kids) even knowing. Asking fathers to play with their kids and get them giggling is one of the best tips I’ve gotten from my pal photographer, Betsy from Elizabeth Anne Photography. Resetting Dad’s mindset from “portrait-time” to “playtime” gets almost anyone to forget the camera, have fun, and allows the photographer to get those genuine smiles and special moments to cherish.
