CELEBRATING MELBOURNE DADS AND FATHER-FIGURES
We often talk about capturing and celebrating motherhood. Now with one-and-a-half months to go until Father's Day 2021 it's time to start thinking what present or gift to get for the men in our lives.
It doesn't matter whether they are dads, grandfathers, step-dads, foster or adoptive fathers, god fathers or any other variation of father figure the first Sunday in September is our chance to acknowledge them and surprise them with something special.
If you need convincing that the role of fatherhood is worth capturing these are my top 20 favourite images featuring fathers from the last 12 months. It has been a privilege and a joy to capture moments for each of these families.
