Begun with the initial goal of leaving his daughter Alice Bee with a creative documentation of her childhood, D.C. photographer and father Dave Engledow has recently catapulted to the top of our radar with his “World’s Best Father” series. His Facebook feed had become inundated with a monotonous carousel of standard (read: boring) baby pictures, and Dave wanted to provide a means of documentation that was just a little more interesting for his new little one.
Cue his first picture – a sleep-deprived new dad, holding his young baby like a football, and using the baby’s milk to flavor their coffee in what else, but a “World’s Best Father” mug. Nearly sixty images and a crazy successful Kickstarter later, Dave continues to feature his daughter, now 21 months, in precarious positions, and his beloved “World’s Best Father” mug has made an appearance in every one.
Alice Bee, you’re one lucky kid. Your dad’s mug isn’t too far off.
