Shock, awe and joy.
Photographer Dave Young recently spent several nights in London's Chelsea and Westminster Hospital with one mission: capture the expression of new fathers in the moments immediately following the birth of their children. The photos are part of The Book of Dads, being put out by the good people behind The Book of Everyone (where you can create personalized photo books) as a special Father's Day project. 50 percent of the proceeds from The Book of Dads will go to Borne, a British charity that supports babies born prematurely.
Steve Hanson, one of the Book of Everyone founders, said, "We thought it'd be fun to celebrate that awe, worry and relief on the faces of new dads who have just witnessed the birth of their sons or daughters. Dave Young was the perfect photographer to capture these once in a lifetime moments."
Check out these amazing photos by Dave Young, which all feature special advice from the proud new papas to their babies. The love is strong in this post.
