‘World’s Best Father’ Documents Hilarious Scenes With Daughter
Not long after photographer Dave Engledow’s daughter Bree was born in 2010 he got a novelty “World’s Best Father” mug. But the first-time dad didn’t always feel like he was completely on top of the whole fatherhood thing. So to express his constant bewilderment he set up a funny picture of himself absent-mindedly squirting bottle milk into that very coffee-filled World’s Best Father mug as he held his baby.
“The first World’s Best Father image I shot was initially intended as a one-off,” he explained. “I wanted to capture the dazed, sleep-deprived obliviousness of the new father, while at the same time gently poking fun at myself and new fathers everywhere.”
The picture came out so well he decided to make World’s Best Father a photo series, which now has 56 images. Now his goal is to make a World’s Best Father 2013 calendar and he has set up a Kickstarter page to raise money for its production.
So far Engledow has more than three times his goal of $1,200. When you see some of his adorable and hilarious shots, which are below, you will understand why.
