Birthday Girl Begs Dad To Wear Mermaid Costume And The Photo Shoot Is Priceless.

Some dads will do just about anything to make their kids happy, even if that means looking incredibly silly from time to time.

Desirae Deal, a professional photographer in Lamar, Arkansas, specializes in creative children’s portraits and fine art photography. When a family hired her to take pictures on their daughter’s 8th birthday, she was not prepared for how hard she’d be laughing that day.

I had the honor of doing a mermaid session for this sweet girl’s 8th birthday, and all she wanted was for her Dad to join in on the fun,” Desirae wrote on Facebook. “Let me tell you he did NOT disappoint! The laughs, the joy, and the memories they created were the absolute best gift he could’ve gave her.”

“I have no doubt that this story, this priceless memory, will be talked about and cherished for generations to come,” she continued. “Take the pictures. Play with them every chance you get, for they are only little for so long.”

We could not agree more. Just look at the smiles on these happy faces! This little girl will cherish these quirky pics of her hilarious dad forever.
