Father's Day 2009...

I know it’s a tad late in the day for a Father’s Day post but I wanted to put this out there in honor of my husband. When we married, almost 14 years ago, he not only started his life as a husband, but that as a first time father…to two teenagers.

Being a parent is not always easy; becoming a parent to teenagers, overnight, can be a bit daunting. Many would feel intimidated at the thought, but not him. He didn’t take on the role, per se, because that word ‘role’ just doesn’t fit what he did. He didn’t play the part of being a father, he became their father. I can say that my, no our, children love him beyond words, as I do.

As you may or may not know he travels quite a bit for his job and takes advantage of the photo opportunities available to him. He’s been working on a photography website which I will share it in the near future. In the meantime here are a few of his photographs.


















Happy Father’s Day.

Awesome man, Dad and photographer. When I look at them I think it's safe to say : 'He's more than likely to give up his day job.' Stunning shots!

Wow - beautiful shots. He has a great photographic eye. So much in common - my husband inherited my kids (one a teenager) while never having had children of his own. What a great Dad!
