I had the privilege of working with the dad of this precious one-year-old little girl recently. He wanted to surprise the mother with portraits for her birthday, which was yesterday. He even participated in the promotion and purchased the size 12-month dress I have listed in a post below on August 6, 2009. Here is one with the dress that I suggested. He even got the cake and balloons for the session!
In all my years of photographing children, he has been the first dad to go through all what he did to surprise someone! I thought it was the sweetest thing and I really admire him for that!
