A son is a son till he gets a wife, a daughter is a daughter for the rest of her life~ Author unknown
In all the years that we have been capturing moments of people’s lives, some of the most powerful ones are with fathers and their daughters at a wedding.  Even the toughest, hard-nosed fathers will get choked up when asked “Who gives this woman away?” or during the infamous father daughter dance.  I think that’s why a lot of the dances that are making headlines are not the slow dances of old.  Having to remember the choreography keeps Daddy’s mind off the fact that he has lost his little girl to another man.  But he never really loses us.  We always know that when all else fails call Dad.  Dad will come to the rescue and either fix it or knows someone who can.
This Sunday over 70 million fathers will be honored with phone calls, neck ties or soap on the rope.  Some fathers will even get flowers because roses are the official flower for Father’s Day. A red rose is worn in the lapel if your father is living, a white rose if he is deceased.  Yes some of the gifts are cliché but they are also badges that have been earned by men who have had tea partes with tiaras, taught a child to throw a curve ball or to change the oil.
Thank you to all the men who in some way are a father figure.
