18 Of The Most Adorable Father + Baby Pictures

“God made fathers, strong and firm, for he knew our lives would have great concerns. So he gave us fathers to teach us to pray, and guide our lives, and show us the way. ”  - Mary Frances Bogle

From the day a child is born, the moment a Father holds his son, an immediate bond is formed. There is just something about a Dad. At times, they even understand you better than a Mother. I know sometimes it’s easier to talk to my Dad about things – at times, they just understand things better and no matter what, they support you. I don’t know what I would do without my Dad. I am lucky enough to see him a few times a week, if not everyday, and talk to him all the time. If I didn’t have that, I would be a lost little girl. And well, I just can’t imagine my life without my Dad.  There is just something about a special bond between a child and their Father. I absolutely love and adore mine and I am so blessed to have an awesome relationship with him. But, enough about me! 

In honor of Father’s Day I thought it would be a great time to thank all of the Dads in the world! So, I’ve reached out to photographers + readers to round-up some of the sweetest candid moments between a child and their Father.

After the jump, browse 18 super-sweet moments that will make you feel all kinds of warm + cozy inside.
