Hilarious Dad is Self-Professed "World’s Best Father"

You might remember photographer Jason Lee’s creative portraits of his daughters that put them in humorous situations. There’s something really sweet about a father’s point of view of his little girl that is both heartwarming and adorable. In a similar fashion, photographer Dave Engledow captures inventive photos of his little angel, except he’s featured in the portraits as well. With his “World’s Best Father” mug in tow, the DC-based dad can be seen spending some quality time with his daughter while being hilariously reckless.

Engledow says, “Since the birth of our daughter Alice Bee in December 2010, the majority of my inspiration has stemmed from creatively documenting the first moments of her life in our family.” Those moments appear to be ones in which the tiny tot is vacuuming the floor as dad sips his mug of coffee (perhaps including a little something extra with a kick to it) from the comfort of his seat on the couch and sitting in a jack-o’-lantern as her father haphazardly digs his knife into the pumpkin.

The ongoing photo series, aptly dubbed World’s Best Father, continues to churn out new images of the father-daughter duo in comical scenes that showcase the “dazed, sleep-deprived, oblivious” new father and “clueless dad” on Facebook. Engledow also has a Kickstarter campaign for a World’s Best Father calendar that was fully funded within the first day. However, there’s still time to contribute and receive special perks. The campaign ends on October 5, 2012.

UPDATE: We’re overjoyed to announce that Dave’s hilarious adventures with Alice Bee is one of 25 photo stories featured in our new book For Love, published by Chronicle Books! The official release date is March 15, 2016, and the book is currently available to pre-order at AmazonBarnes and Noble, and Indie Bound.

3-Year-Old Boy Forms Adorable Friendship With Foster Family’s Dog

If you ever need proof that dog is man’s best friend, look no further than Instagram. The social media site has no shortage of picture-perfect pups, as many doting dog owners share snapshots of life with their four-legged friends. While some go on adventures together and others dress alike, Reagan the labradoodle and “Little Buddy”—his family’s foster child—do both. Reagan was adopted by Oregon resident Sandi Swiridoff when he was just 11 months old.
