A father’s love for their child can take many forms. He even wore a pink ballet tutu for an adorable photoshoot.
Casey Fields and his 1-year-old daughter, Lyla, suited up in matching tutus to have professional portraits shot by Texas photographer Jenn Floyd.
They wore the pink tulle skirts for the occasion, and Lyla wore a flower crown while her father accessorized with a snapback hat.
Casey manicured his daughter’s nails, drew in a Minnie Mouse coloring book, and gave her loving cuddles as the camera clicked away.
The adorable photos were shared on Facebook by the photographer, Jenn Floyd, and the post has now had 20,000 likes and a huge 53,000 shares.
According to photographer Jenn, Casey was a tad nervous about being in a tutu when the photoshoot started. Fortunately, he quickly got over it. “Casey was nervous at first because of the tutu, but he quickly loosened up and fell into his role as an involved father, which comes very naturally to him.”
Now the pictures, taken by photographer Jenn Floyd, are going viral and warming hearts across the country. And Casey hopes it will show fellow dads that “it’s okay for a manly man to put on a tutu and play with his daughter.”
Everyone feels “fortunate,” according to the photographer, because of all the nice responses they’ve received. “It was just a charming concept that we hoped would bring a smile to our friends’ faces; we had no clue it would send a grin to the entire country!”
