World's Best Father!

Have you heard of him? Have you seen him? If you haven't you will now!

Maryland-based photographer and father David Engledow began taking photographs of his daughter Alice Bee when she was an infant. The photographs, a series of tongue-in-cheek pictures were created to as a means of poking fun at the type of father Engledow hopes never to become.

The very first picture taken of Alice was with his wife when the baby was just a couple of months old. It was intended to be a single image of himself as a sleep-deprived and clueless new father. The main prop used was a mug that said "World's best Father" which ultimately became the source of amusement, and the inspiration behind these hilarious pictures.

Engledow told Huffington Post that “The character I portray in this series is intended to be a parody of the father I hope I never become -- distracted, self-absorbed, neglectful, clueless, or even occasionally overbearing." The photographer is currently on Kickstarter, where he’s raising money to turn the images into a calendar.

He adds that while the situations look perilous, his "cardinal rule is always to make sure that Alice is never actually in any danger." Engledow and Alice normally pose separately, and he Photoshops the images together into a final product.
