Funny Photos of the ‘World’s Best Father’ with His Adorable Daughter

For the past year, Washington, D.C.-based photographer Dave Engledow has been shooting a humorous series of photographs titled World’s Best Father. With help from his wife Jen, he comes up with all kinds of random (and creative) photo shoot ideas to do with his young daughter Alice Bee. The photographs generally portray him as a distracted, incompetent father who lacks basic life skills and who lets his daughter get into all kinds of mischief. Thankfully, the photos aren’t candid snapshots of what his life is actually like.
