FATHER’S DAY 2015 // A tribute on the blog that is more personal // Calafia Beach Family Session

This Father’s Day I wanted to do a tribute on the blog that is more personal. I wanted to share with you my favorite humans  who make my heart burst with love each day.

Usually I am blogging all the family sessions I do each week but this week on the blog I share with you the most special three people to my heart.

Often I find myself unable to slow down and take time to document/photograph my own family's milestones but today I share with you some personal mushy-right-from-the-heart stuff , right here - on the blog. 

So in honor of Father's Day this year I begged these guys to let me photograph them , let's be real I begged HIM more then I had to our kids , ha.

 This amazing man you see , daddy to our two girls + the glue that holds our family together, the man of my dreams (yes I just got THAT cheesy ) - is the BEST daddy that a woman could ask for . He is so many amazing things - for starters , an incredible role model to our girls- they look up to him day in and day out , he is a teacher when they seek patient guidance & want to learn new things or have questions mommy can't answer , he is the rationalizer when their are meltdowns (because lets face it , with him up against this much  estrogen in the family it can sometimes be emotional , ha), he is the incredible provider for our family, works harder then any man I know and sometimes doesn't get to celebrate days like his own birthday or fathers day , yet never complains ; he is the fixer when plumbing in the house goes awry or toys break we are thankful for the comfort of knowing that whatever goes wrong daddy will be there to fix it , he is the playmate , a great jungle gym to our girls at 6am when they are jumping on the bed with high energy on a Saturday -interacting and roughhousingwith them on his not-so-willing early morning rise but you know what? He does it with laughter and a smile on his face. He is the listener when our oldest has a story from school to tell us or wants daddy to sit and chat, he is  the disciplinarian, when I’m a softie he helps the children learn proper boundaries and consequences which I'll admit I'm not always good at... He is the caregiver , the one who encourages our girls to always soar in areas of their interest and giftedness, the one who taught our oldest how to ride a bike while shes pedaling away in tears saying "I can't do it" . . .

 I could literally list all the ways I feel he is the number one daddy, but their isn’t a blog long enough - LAST OF ALL, he is OUR ROCK . This incredible daddy is the reason us girls smile everyday ! 

So, if you’re reading this my love,  please know we love you to the ends of the world and back.

Forever and always . 

 Love, your girls. 

PS: Thank you for always letting me torture you with taking your pictures like I’m paparazzi! These girls will love having these documented memories with you!
