To Lucas on Father's Day

Happy Papa's Day!

My sister took this photo of Lucas holding his brand new baby girl the morning of her birth. He had been up all night, it was an all natural, non-hospital birth, an intense experience for us both, ok, more-so for me, but he was there with me and for me every step of the way. The photo was taken within the first few hours of her life, their first moments together as father and daughter. I love the obvious tenderness in his expression.

Clover is so lucky to have such a wonderful papa, and I’m lucky too…



Happy Papa’s Day sweetie, you’re the best! …and we love you.

each of these photos is so PERFECT in capturing the sweetest moments between clover and her papa! he looks like a wonderful person, missa - the sort of mysterious other side of the thrift candy family! sometimes i feel like fathers in general really don't get a lot of hoopla or attention, but they're just steady in the background being cool and helpful and wonderful. which is truly worth honoring, and i hope you guys have a great celebration for lucas! happy day.
