A father’s influence on a daughter’s self-image. A dad’s involvement in his daughter’s life is a crucial ingredient in the development of a young woman’s self-esteem. … Direct involvement and encouragement by her father will help diminish a girl’s insecurity and increase her confidence in her own abilities.
My favorite type of photos are where there is an emotional connection. Last night I was able to capture a lot of moments of dads and daughters enjoying the Memphis Zoo for a Chick-fil-A Daddy Daughter Date Night.
By putting my flash off camera for some of the photos I was able to improve the light on the faces of the people to capture those expressions and then drag the shutter to pickup the background to add to the atmosphere.
The dads and daughters enjoyed dancing together.
They enjoyed a Carousel Ride as well.
The Important Role of Dad. While almost any man can father a child, there is so much more to the important role of being dad in a child’s life.
I watched as dads did everything they could to be sure their daughters were having a wonderful time.
Now not all were as brave or maybe good on ice skates as this dad. However many did also take in the ice rink as well.
To walk the zoo could take a long time the zoo had their trams running to take everyone around the zoo cutting down on those long walks.
There were the Cow Celebrities running around as well as the princess for the kids to enjoy being photographed with and to give hugs.
While I would have preferred to shoot everything with available light the problem was that I found the people silhouetted by the lights of the events behind them. The flash also made them the most important part of the photo.
A good father makes all the difference in a child’s life. He’s a pillar of strength, support and discipline. His work is endless and, oftentimes, thankless.
