Photographer Giedre Gomes does beautiful portraits of families and especially children, ones that look exactly like what you’d want to frame and hang on your mantle. She recently went viral for a photo series that was a fairly big departure from her usual genre. It featured pictures of moms in their everyday lives, trying to care for their kids and keep their lives functioning. Anyone who has ever had to corral a bunch of children under the age of ten probably recognizes this moment on the toilet, all privacy sacrificed:
For Father’s Day, Gomes wanted to do a new series, according to a post she wrote for Bored Panda.
“Now that I am a mother myself, I watch my husband, my friends’ husbands, see how they interact with their children,” she writes. “I catch myself comparing them with my own father. It’s funny how different they all are but at the end they love their children unconditionally.”
Gomes tried to grab a snapshot of all the dads she knows, and share some of the humor, work, and fun of being a dad.
