Fatherhood | Life + Lens Blog Special Edition

This month’s Special Edition post is a tribute to fatherhood and to all the wonderful fathers out there.

We especially love how these images capture gentle strength, loving arms, playful moments and such stunning images. Thank you to all of you who submitted images for this month’s special edition; here are a some of our favorites. Enjoy!
