Father's Day

Today is Father's Day over in America, which for those of you who don't know already is where I am from.  I took this photo of my Dad in 2012 when we went over to visit them for Christmas.  We took our camera's out to catch golden hour. It was pretty cold, but exciting for me to be out taking photo's with my Dad.  My whole life he's always had a good camera because he loves photography. The number of portrait style photo's of me in front of the rose bushes out the front of our house is too many to count. Embarrassing at the time...but now I get it. Shortly after my son was born, he and my Mom bought me a DSLR that ignited a passion for photography that I never knew I had. I'm forever grateful to them for giving me that gift. That trip was the last time I saw him in person.  We skype frequently though.  He and Mom are planning on coming here this year for a hot Christmas and I couldn't be more excited.  Love you Dad. Happy Father's Day xx
