    These Photos Of Dads With Their Kids Will Make You Laugh And Also Warm Your Heart

    From fishing lessons to princess makeovers, dads have it all covered.

    Giedre Gomes is an Indiana-based professional photographer who takes stunningly beautiful photos of children and families.

    Also a mother of two boys, she recently created a photo project that, unlike some of her more poised and artistic shots, showed a much more realistic view of motherhood.

    And now, she's turned her lens on dads.

    Gomes told BuzzFeed, "I wanted to show good fathers who are involved in their children's lives."

    She also made a point to include all types of dads in the photo series.

    She said, "Let's not forget that there are so many amazing adoptive dads and step fathers out there. You don't have to be a biological father to be a great dad."

    She said that it took her almost four weeks to convince her own husband (below) to participate because he was worried about negative comments online.

    After the motherhood series went viral, Gomes said she saw a lot of negative, mom-shaming comments.

    She's hoping that a lot of dads will see the photos and relate.

    Gomes has a lot of respect for fathers, and wanted to shine a light on loving, involved dads.

    She wishes dads had more time and opportunity to bond with their kids, especially after birth, and that more employers would offer paid time off for fathers.
