This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Snapfish.

BlogHer and Snapfish recently offered me the opportunity to review their website and products for Father's Day. I was thrilled to do so for a couple of reasons:

1. I LOVE photography, so a site specializing in gifts that showcase photos - PERFECT!

2. I'm such a procrastinator when it comes to holidays such as Father's Day. It sneaks up on me EVERY SINGLE YEAR. Head's up Father's Day is June 21st, so now's the time to start planning! One stop shopping - all the better!

When I'm picking out a gift for the one I love, I want that gift to hold significance. I'm not satisfied with a traditional Father's Day tie, grill tools, or a pointless (in my feminine opinion) gadget. Regardless of the price, I want my gift to be valued.

Snapfish offers a wide assortment of these memorable gifts; Over 100 unique, customizable gifts, in fact! Take a look at a few of my favorite personalized creations, perfect for DAD:

snapfish

> Desk Organizer

> Photo Key Chain

> Golf Towel

> Frosted Stein

> Photo Books

These gifts are a "snap" to make, most in a 3 step process, that make the even non-tech savvy smile. I was honestly shocked at how quickly my pictures uploaded to their site. You can create gifts in a matter of minutes, and Snapfish offers easy cropping and editing tools to make your creations even more top notch! It's no wonder they are "the number one online photo service, with more than 60 million members in 20 countries and 2 billion unique photos stored online".

The honest to goodness hardest part of placing my order was the decision making! After clicking through a jillion choices, I opted for these 3 selections: a photo panel, a photo greeting card, and a journal lined notebook.

Here's an even better look at each of my lovely selections:

DSC_1833-1

It's pretty rare to have any pictures of "just me" anymore, so I created a 5x7 photo greeting card for Brad to frame for his office.  You can even personalize the inscription on the back...but I'll spare you the gushy gushy!

DSC_1834

I CAN however share with you the message inside this journal-lined notebook. (That's Henry and Clark holding each other's sweet hands, by the way.) The inscription inside reads:

Daddy, Thank you for Holding our Hands AND our Hearts.

 

Father's Day 2009

 DSC_1838

My final and FAVORITE selection is this 8x10 wood photo panel. This is one of the best products Snapfish offers! It exceeded my expectations for both quality and price at only $14.99. Have you seen 4 finer looking gentlemen? We're not waiting until June to put this on display!

DSC_1840 

In fact, I couldn't contain myself from revealing the gifts I designed for my favorite guy on the planet a tad early. His reactions were just what I was hoping for! He too was impressed with the overall caliber of these gifts, which is a true compliment coming from a graphics major!

=========================================================================

My favorite photo memory of my Dad is a picture taken about 7 years ago now. He used to get silly excited about watching re-runs of the TV show JAG. He used to jump in the air and click his feet together, while clapping. I managed to grab a photo mid-air.

Jenny on May 11, 2009 at 2:49 PM said...

My favorite photo would be of me & my dad at my wedding. It was such a wonderful day and wonderful memories.

SarahSLP on May 11, 2009 at 2:53 PM said...

My favorite picture of my dad was when I was two or three? It had snowed a ton outside and I was waiting by the window waiting for him to shovel and he came up to the window with the BEST smile ever. My mom has it...I need to copy it.

Kristi on May 11, 2009 at 2:53 PM said...

Probably me and my dad at my wedding!! What great gifts you picked out for your guy!!!

Jess on May 11, 2009 at 2:54 PM said...

My favorite photo would be of my dad and I playing "horse" with a white basketball (my dad spray painted it) at my wedding reception. He is in a suit and I am in my wedding dress. It was our Father of the Bride movie moment and a great memory.

Cochran Quads on May 11, 2009 at 3:03 PM said...

My favorite memory is actually from a picture, I don't remember it, but the picture makes me feel like I remember every second. My dad was holding my sister and myself in his arms and smiling from ear to ear! I Love that picture!!!! sandradcochran@bellsouth.net

Jessica said...

My favorite memory of my dad and I is a picture of my sister and I cuddling with him in "his" chair. All 3 of us are sleeping!

I was always a daddy's girl and one of my favorite photos is my sitting beside him when I was 3 or 4 while he was reading the newspaper.

Heidi on May 11, 2009 at 3:16 PM said...

My favorite photographed memory of my Dad is a picture of me when I was about two and I am sitting on my Dad's lap while I am talking on the phone...my Dad teases me that I talk alot and with the look on his face in this picture...he always pulls it out and says this is where it all started!

My favorite photo ever of my dad is a picture taken the summer he past away. I was 20 years old and he went on vacation with just my mom. they went and toured the gardens and mansions in Rhode Island. My father was NEVER and I mean NEVER without a cell phone in his ear. He had a cell phone long before others did. He lived and breathed work. When we would be in Disney growing up we would have PHONE BREAKS. We would stand by the pay phone while my dad made phone calls. Nothing like 5 kids waiting for an adult to make business calls. So back to the picture, my mom told him the ONLY way he was allowed to go on these garden tours with her was if he left his cell phone LOCKED in the glove box. She had the key and he was in no way allowed to access the phone during the tour. He did it and tourtered her along the way by posing like statues and goofing around on the tour. The picture is priceless and sits on my desk at work, the corporation my dad built! I love it!

I will post about it on my blog as well as Twitter. I will let you know when I did. I will even post the famous picture!

Melissa on May 11, 2009 at 3:30 PM said...

My favorite photo memory of my "dad" was actually of my step father and I at my wedding. He was a man who I battled with a lot as a teen because he wasn't my "real dad." But once I grew up, I learned what a real dad was didn't come from DNA.

Suzanne on May 11, 2009 at 3:34 PM said...

LOVE snapfish! my fav memory of my dad is on the first day of his new job. (he was affected by layoffs when i was in high school) i was so proud of him and he looked so happy in his suit, about to get in his car to drive to work! priceless.

Laura on May 11, 2009 at 3:43 PM said...

My favorite memory of my Dad is him giving the blessing at my wedding. There wasn't a dry eye in the house after that.

ANSLEY on May 11, 2009 at 3:47 PM said...

My memory was my sweet Daddy walking me down the aisle at my wedding - tears in our eyes!!

Joe and Carrie on May 11, 2009 at 3:54 PM said...

My favorite photo memory of me and my dad is from my wedding, just before he walked me down the isle. I just laugh when I see our peaceful, happy faces in the picture because just seconds after it was taken, my dad dashed into action to rescue all of the rose petals that the flower girl had just dumped the second she stepped on the isle runner. She finished her flower girl duties with a a twirl when she got to the front of the church!

Amanda on May 11, 2009 at 4:06 PM said...

My favorite picture of my dad is him holding my first born son--his first grandchild. My son was only about 7 months old but they both have this smile on their face that is absolutely priceless. Today my first born son ADORES his Papaw and his Papaw would move mountains for him.

Krystyn on May 11, 2009 at 4:13 PM said...

Hmmm...can I do my step dad? I'd have to say at the father daughter dance. It captured the moment.

Anonymous said...

We have so many great "dad" stories in our fam. He loves his kids tremendously and now he is showering his love on to his grandkids. We have so many precious pictures of him rocking his grandbabies. After a getting the babies to sleep he tips the recliner back so the two of them can catch a cat nap together. We caught that on film too!

i have two absolute favorite moments with my dad. the first was when i was about three + i am standing on my dad's feet as we are dancing in the living room, both of us turned toward the camera with big huge grins. and the second is just as the doors opened + my dad was walking me down the aisle, we are both laughing because the moment just prior he turned to me and asked if ac/dc was playing to ease the tension.

My most recent favorite photo of my dad is last father's day. My son was almost 2 months old and my dad has his hands wrapped around his head and both of them have the sweetest smile on their faces. It is so sweet and beautiful. It wasn't posed and I just captured the pure moment.
Love the gift ideas!

Meg on May 11, 2009 at 4:42 PM said...

My favorite photo memory of my dad is from my brother's graduation from boot camp in 1999. He is beaming with pride and looks so happy and carefree. Less then a year after my brother graduated from Basic Training, he was killed in an accident. I don't think that smile has crossed my dad's face since. It was almost 9 years ago, but when I look at pictures of him now, I see so much pain in his smile.
Another favorite is the first picture of him holding my son!

Jessie's Girls on May 11, 2009 at 4:51 PM said...

My favorite photo memory of my dad is a picture of him in the boat his own father gave him a few years before he died. My Dad's father was never a very attentive or demonstrative father. My dad had very few affirmations of love from him throughout his life. When my Grandpa gave him the boat it was the most significant act of affirmation he had ever received from him. That boat was very precious to him and I saw him shed a few tears the day he had to sell it.

Jen on May 11, 2009 at 5:07 PM said...

My favorite memory of my dad is when he used to hold me up over his head in the pool like super woman, or actually like the Dirty Dancing pose done in the river. :oP

Leigh on May 11, 2009 at 5:10 PM said...

My favorite memory of me and my dad is of us when I was a little girl and we're rolled up in a blanket together cuddling. The picture is in b&w and adorable. I still have it framed in my house and it reminds me of cherishing the little times.

berkeley said...

my favorite picture of my dad and me is when I was just a few months old sitting in his lap while he was eating breakfast before leaving for work. He looks relaxed and in no rush to get to work and I'm happy to be in my daddy's arms. Still to this day, he always takes time for me and nothing is better than a hug from dad!

Paige and Kevin on May 11, 2009 at 6:09 PM said...

I have two - me, age 1 or 2, riding in a backpack carrier with my dad looking rather early 80's with his short track shorts and shaggy hair...

the other is a great black and white from the father/daughter dance at my wedding.

BreezieGirl on May 11, 2009 at 6:12 PM said...

My favorite photo memory of my Dad... tough question! Can I choose two? They are both pictures that I took of my dad.

I love this one (http://www.flickr.com/photos/bleach226/450276101/) because I love seeing myself reflected in my dad's sunglasses. It means so much to see myself "through his eyes." I actually gave his a copy of this picture for Father's Day a couple of years ago.

I also really like this one (http://www.flickr.com/photos/bleach226/578541227/) because even though he's seemingly invisible due to the motion blur... it reminds me that my dad plays with me. He took the time and invested in the art of crafting the picture. We had so much fun coming up with different ways to make the light shine and swirl. It was a fantastic night and one I treasure through the photo.

Emily H on May 11, 2009 at 6:13 PM said...

My favorite photo of my dad is one we had taken at our wedding. We had just finished with our dance and it is us hugging....there is so much emotion on his face and I love it!

Christmas 1959 (i think)..My Daddy in a red cowboy hat holding a Barbie in one hand cigarette in the other...too funny!

KMom on May 11, 2009 at 6:44 PM said...

My favorite photo memory of my dad actually happened just last year on Father's Day. My mom and dad were visiting from out of town and attended church with us. At the Father's Day brunch that morning, they took pictures of all the dads with their children. My dad has 3 children, but it just so happened that I was the only one present at the time and I got to take a picture with him by ourselves. It was a special moment as I had just celebrated my first mother's day a month prior and somehow I felt more connected to him at that moment than ever before!

Barbara Manatee on May 11, 2009 at 6:54 PM said...

I remember a great photo of me dancing on my dad's feet at a wedding ;-) I was his 'princess' for so many years!

There's a photo my parents have of me sleeping with my Dad in his favorite leather chair in our basement... I just looked so comfy. All snuggled up in my Daddy's arms.

I love a picture my dad and I took at a Girl Scout square dance when I was about 9. It's the cheesiest picture, but it reminds me how much fun we had that night!

One of my favorites is a snapshot of my dad signing a permission slip for me to go on a youth group trip. I'm in the background looking on with a huge grin on my face. It was right before my 18th birthday and it was the last permission slip he ever had to sign for me. :)

My favorite photo of my dad is one of him reading to me when I was about 2. He would bring (used) new books home almost every week from the thrift store near his work.. there was no more safe and fun place than to be on his lap, being read to!

My favorite picture of my dad is from when my older sister was a tiny little girl. He's in bib overalls with no shirt underneath (so 70's!) and just grinning at my sister who was playing in a mud puddle. So sweet.

My dad died May 22, 2000 and my favorite photographic memories of him are the ones taken about 6 months before he died, holding my sons. He was very thin and balding from the chemotherapy but smiling because he was holding his grandsons. I love and miss him so much.

My favorite photo of my dad is one of he and me and my older brother in bed one morning. My brother and I look so chipper and hyper and you can just see in my dads face he is exhausted. I love this picture now as a parent because I understand how he must have felt- love for the kids and total exhaustion at the same time.

Michele on May 12, 2009 at 5:21 AM said...

I grew up without a father (my mom and him divorced when I was young and he wasn't involved in our lives), so I will use my next closest father; my grandfather. I have to say my most favorite photo of my grandfather is him holding my son; his first great grandbaby.

Liz on May 12, 2009 at 6:05 AM said...

My dad always has such a sweet smile. There are so many pictures that I love but I must say the youthful pictures of him sitting on the floor with me when I was a baby or standing next to me, holding me while I am on a pony are a couple of my favorites.

debbale on May 12, 2009 at 6:05 AM said...

My favorite of my dad is the last one that I took before he was swept up to heaven. He was reading a book to my triplet grandchildren. They were only 3 days shy of their first birthday. But now at two they still lool at that picture and talk about their Great Pappaw

My favorite photo memory of Dad is of him holding my oldest child, his only grandson. Our son used to have quite the fascination with lights and fans and every time we went to my parents' house (which was usually at least once a week), my dad would pick him up and carry him through there house on the "Fan and light tour". They'd stop under each one and look up and point and my son would say "yight!" My favorite photo is my dad holding my son and pointing up to the ceiling.

Unfortunately I never got to know my father. I don't have a single photo of him.

I do have tons of pictures of my twins with their dad, though. Picking just one moment, one memory, one photo is impossible. There are so many great ones - all 3 of the boys conked out and taking a nap. Dad feeding them for the first time (one was 4lbs at birth and is dwarfed in his fathers hands.) And there are so many more everyday moments.

My favorite mental photograph of my dad has to be my first day of college.

I was his first born and so much a daddy's girl. He was a tough farmer. Never showed his feelings much, and, unfortunately, a tough spring made him miss out on some important events my senior year.

As I began to walk the hill to my dorm alone, I took one final look at my parents. There was my dad with watery eyes and tears running down his face. As hard as it was to leave that day, that made it the best day in the world.

Thanks for this opportunity.

My favorite is a picture of my dad with my daughter and my niece right before he had heart surgery.

My favorite photo memory of my dad was when I returned from a year in Germany as an exchange student. I was only 16 when I went, and 17 when I came back. My dad was never demonstrative, but when my family picked me up at the airport, we were driving home and were stopped at an intersection where there was a man selling single roses. My dad beckoned him over and bought me one. That told me he missed me being gone for a year! When we got home, we took a family photo and I had my rose. :-)

Your boys are beautiful, by the way. You have a truly gorgeous family.

I love pictures of my dad with my kids. He doesn't smile really big often, but I have a great pic of him tickling 2 of my children and everyone is laughing. i love it!

Karly on May 13, 2009 at 8:01 AM said...

My favorite photograph of my dad is one I actually took not too long ago. It's a picture of him taking a picture of my daughter taking a picture of him. Does that even make sense? It's just a neat picture and I love the way it shows how his love of photography passed from him to me to her.

I think my favorite photo of my dad was just a simple picture of him sitting in his office at his desk. It was a candid shot and really just captured him perfectly.

My favorite photograph with my Dad is from my wedding. I was so honored to have him walk me down the aisle and he was so proud.

Princess Golden Hair on May 13, 2009 at 9:09 AM said...

"What's your favorite photographed memory of your dad?"

I still have a black and white photo of my dad holding a little bald headed girl in a frilly pale dress. At his feet lay a bonnet his first born had thrown off her head.

This photo is of my Dad holding me right after my baptism. He looks so young, proud, and a tad nervous as his big hands hold that little form that was me as a baby

RuthMarie on May 13, 2009 at 9:13 AM said...

My favorite photo memory of my Dad is a picture taken at my wedding. It was taken just after the doors opened up and he was about to walk me down the aisle. I don't think I've ever seen him standing that tall or looking that proud! My email is rootsmarie@yahoo.com.
Thanks for offering this!

There is a picture of my mom and dad on their wedding day, which I just love. My dad looks so young and happy, with such hope in his eyes.

Danielle on May 13, 2009 at 4:57 PM said...

We do not have many photos of my dad, but my favorite has to be one we have of him wearing Blue's Clues ears over his sun hat. He is always doing things to try and get the little ones to smile.

I love your selestions. Great choice! My favorite photo memory of my dad was a picture I took out of pure luck. I went fishing with him and once we were done I wanted to get a picture of him holding is fish. I had my camera in hand and jumped out of the boat. As soon as I jumped out the boat shook and my dad fell straight into the lake. So I definately got my picture. It was priceless!

Rachel on May 14, 2009 at 12:44 PM said...

My favorite photo memory of my Dad is from my wedding. Right before we were to start down the aisle and he leaned over and kissed me on the cheek and told me he loved me. It was one of the sweetest memories I have of my Dad!

Kimberly on May 14, 2009 at 6:05 PM said...

My favorite picture of my dad is him in a canoe, with huge tube socks, and an orange hat. He looks like Earnest and it's hilarious!

I also love my Daddy/Daughter dance pictures from my wedding. We just sang to each other the whole time!

Adam and Beth on May 14, 2009 at 9:32 PM said...

I have so many pictures of my dad & I, but my favorite would have to be then I was about 5-6 years old, on the beach. He built a sand 'dress' for me (I was in the center, with the sand coming up to my waist) and built a castle, telling me I was a princess :) Definitely a memory I will NEVER forget :)

My favorite memory with my dad is that we went together on a mission trip to Belize during my spring break my senior year of college. I was engaged to be married that summer so it was really neat to be able to spend some one-on-one time right before my life, and our relationship, changed completely. It was very meaningful and especially to do this in a mission trip setting where we could get deeper in each other's spiritual lives.

Marianna on May 19, 2009 at 6:44 PM said...

My fave photo of Daddy and me is when I was about 4-5 years old... standing at the beach, hand-in-hand. The picture is taken from behind us - so you just see our backs/silhouettes, a fading sun over a beautiful ocean and me and my Daddy holding hands. Makes me tear up thinking about it. Silly, huh?

Julie on May 21, 2009 at 7:09 PM said...

My dad avoids the camera like a mad man. So I love all of my wedding pictures. He had to cooperate that day!

My dad was an avid outdoors man. He loved to fish more than he loved to breath. I have a photo of my dad that was taken while he was sitting on a riverbank fishing. It's a photo that was focused and setup then the person taking the photo called his name then snapped the shot just as he turned his head.

Melissa on May 22, 2009 at 6:33 AM said...

My favorite photo of me and my father was taken 27 years ago. I was about 2 years old, sitting on his lap at the table. I am wearing his hat and he is in his Marine camos, just came home from work.

Emily on May 22, 2009 at 7:47 AM said...

My favorite photo of my dad was taken at least 20 years ago and is of him taking a nap on a chair with his suit jacket pulled up over his ears. He has a quirky sense of humor and always joked that when he was napping he was just "resting his eyes" and pulling his suit jacket up over his ears was to keep his ears warm. The photo is a great glimpse into his personality.

Joy on May 22, 2009 at 7:47 AM said...

My favorite photo of my dad would be when I was pregnant with my first child. My dad has always had a big beer belly, so we would compare bellies as mine was growing. My fave pic is one of us with our big bellies!

Peggy Graham on May 22, 2009 at 9:06 AM said...

My favorite photo memory of my dad is when my first son was six weeks old and we got together with the family to take a five-generation photo, including my son, myself, my dad, my grandma, and my great-grandma. I found it especially neat as we also have a five-generation photo with me as the baby, and my dad, his mother (my grandmother), her father (my great-grandfather), and his mother (my great-great-grandmother). I don't know anyone else in real life who has two consecutive five-generation photos.

Robyn on May 22, 2009 at 8:05 PM said...

love the one of us going on a family walk I was wearing a little hat and carrying my doll while dad had the 70s look going on!

Janet and Maya on May 24, 2009 at 5:58 PM said...

My fave memory of my Dad that we caught with the camera was when he was approx 80 years old. For some reason, he had gotten in his head that he wanted an electric train. For a few years, he would look for trains whenever we went shopping, ask people about them etc. So, finally, one Christmas we got him an electric train and I got a picture of his face as he opened it. You would swear he was 8, not 80.

My favorite photo of my dad is the pic of him at the hospital holding me for the first time - he just looks so shocked.

I never knew about the photo panel on Snapfish but I think I'm definitely going to order one for a friend's wedding gift.

Gina on June 9, 2009 at 11:38 AM said...

My favorite picture of my dad was taken when my youngest daughter was just 7 days old. He has a very proud grin while holding her and my other daughter (then 3.5 years old). Little did I know that he would pass away only two weeks later and that picture would be one of two that I have of him with both of his granddaughters.

Lisa on June 9, 2009 at 11:39 AM said...

I know everyone is saying at their wedding- but it is one of the few pics I have together with my dad. Our daughter/father dance at my wedding is my favorite! Thanks!

Patty on June 9, 2009 at 12:01 PM said...

The one that come to mind is the one of my dad holding a long snake that he had killed on our back porch where we lived while missionaries to Africa. I am scared to death of snakes but I can count on my dad to be there for me!

My favorite picture of my dad was taken before I was born. My parents were somewhat farmers. Shortly after my brother was born, my dad was bottle feeding a calf for some reason. One night after preparing the bottle for the calf, he sat down and pretended to feed it to my brother. There's this great picture of my dad with this goofy grin on his face with my brother on his lap grabbing onto this giant bottle (think two liter size). It's great.

Dana on June 9, 2009 at 12:19 PM said...

I don't know my father so I don't have a favorite photo memory of him but I thought I'd share about my favorite photo memory of my kid's Dad and my favorite hubby. When my son (our first born) was less than a month old I caught a photo of my husband holding him up in front of him and their foreheads were touching and the look of love on Daddy's face was priceless. It's still one of my favorite pictures of my boys together!

Trish on June 9, 2009 at 12:22 PM said...

A few weeks ago we had the whole family together for Memorial Day. My brother was up with his twins and we were snapping pictures like crazy. There was a picture of one of the little guys sitting on a rock holding his hands just so. As I looked at the picture I realized it was almost a carbon copy of a picture I have of my Dad at the same age (about 2). I love seeing my father in my children and my nephews.

My dad died when I was 3 months pregnant with my first child. I have on picture of me and him while I was pregnant. I always imagine how happy he would be to know my little boy!

Courtney on June 9, 2009 at 12:24 PM said...

My father was a professional bull rider and an amazing dad. Two years ago I gave birth to my first child, a son, and named him after my father, Clinton. In his "cowboy" room hangs a beautifully framed 8x10 of my father riding a bull at Cheyenne. Every time I look at it it brings back memories of my childhood on the rodeo circuit.

Stoots Family on June 9, 2009 at 12:40 PM said...

My absolute favorite picture of my dad that I have is one of him in a Boston Red Sox jersey. It was taken at Fan Fest during the baseball all star week. My dad was a HUGE baseball fanatic & LOVED the Red Sox. It's been almost 5 years since he passed away so I cherish the excitement & happiness that I see in this photo.

Neil & Heather (& Abby) on June 9, 2009 at 12:45 PM said...

While we dropped some serious coin on professional (i.e. staged!) wedding photos, a friend snapped a photo of my dad walking me down the aisle. We're looking at each other with smiles from ear to ear. It's just so casual and in-the-moment-happiness. I love it - and him!

Lindsey on June 9, 2009 at 12:47 PM said...

My favorite photo of me and my dad is from when I was in 5th grade. My father was a Sgt. in the local police dept. He came in uniform with the police squad car as my sharing for the week. I love that picture of he and I.
Thanks for the contest.

Shannon on June 9, 2009 at 12:50 PM said...

My favorite photo memory of my Dad was taken at my wedding, 3 years ago. I love the one of us walking down the aisle. To me it is special because he was trying to tell me a joke as we walked down so that he would not cry. (There were bets taken on if he would cry or not since he is a very emotional guy.) We made it down the aisle without crying!

The other picture I love of my Dad and I would be our dance at the reception. We were ready to start the dance and he was MIA. He got in the room just in time, from the restroom, which caused both of us to laugh. I love that picture because he is holding me tight and telling me that I will always be his baby girl, no matter how old I get and even though I now am married.

Jenna on June 9, 2009 at 1:02 PM said...

It's hard to narrow down one favorite photo of my Daddy. He passed away in 2001 and wasn't here for my wedding, but we had an 8x10 photo of him displayed that's one of my favorites. My Daddy was an RN and it's a picture of him in his school scrubs with one of the female nurses hats on. He had an amazing sense of humor!

Ashley on June 9, 2009 at 2:40 PM said...

I don't know how old i was...i had to have been around 7 or 8. My dad and i are in our kitchen and we are dancing, but not just dancing--i am standing on his work boots. I am looking up at him with the admiration that all daughters look at their father's with ("You are my hero!!"). I believe we have that same photo op at our wedding (only i was dancing on my own feet).

My favorite photo memory of my father is of my 4 year old self sitting on his stomach as he lays on the couch. I have a cookie in one hand and a popsicle in the other (daddy was babysitting) and we are both so obviously smitten with each other. Its a picture I look at often because it reminds me of how loved I am and to appreciate the little moments like hanging out with friends and family on a lazy afternoon.

Susan on June 10, 2009 at 5:59 AM said...

Well, my favorite photograph of my dad just happened this past weekend. My oldest son, their oldest grandson just graduated highschool. My son was blessed to have both sets of grandparents be present but there is one picture of my mom and dad - kind of a "fun" pic of them goofing around with my son, their grandson. My dad is a stern grandpa but you know he loves you BUT in this pic, the love and the proudness of his grandson just sticks out. It is the best and I want to do something with it....thank you for letting me enter.

Mama Snyder on June 10, 2009 at 6:12 AM said...

I actually don't have a favorite photo memory of my own father...he's been gone since I was very young. But my favorite of my husband and son is one I took not long after we got home from the hospital and my son was sound asleep across my husband's chest and my husband had his eyes closed and the sweetest smile of contentment on his face...

After our wedding ceremony (18 years ago), my new husband turned to my dad and said, "Can I call you Dad now?" My dad reached out to embrace him and the photographer caught that moment: my husband's back with his head in my father's shoulder, and my father's face with his eyes closed, fighting tears.

My favorite picture of my dad was when he was about an 18 year old private in the Marine Corps, taken somewhere in the South Pacific. He was wearing what today would be called Speedo swimtrunks and had a 27" waist! Talk about tall, dark and handsome! It's no wonder my mom, who had just turned 16, fell head over heels in love with him when he returned home from the war. They were married a month and some odd days later. They were married 49 years when he died. I've missed him every day since that July 4th, 1995. I really wish he could have gotten to know my boys.

Hobo Mama on June 12, 2009 at 11:50 PM said...

I love that wood panel!

My dad at my wedding — he wouldn't smile when he walked me up the aisle to "give me away." He loves my husband, but it was emotional for him. My mom asked him why he wasn't smiling in any of the pictures, and he said, "I didn't feel like smiling." Aww...
