Earlier this week, birthphotographers.com posted their annual best of the year contest. As I was browsing through them, I was struck by something. I adore new dads. The way they love their wives; the way they look upon their new baby with awe on their faces. In fact, the expression of awe is nearly universal. It then occurred to me that many of my own favorite images are of new dads. So, I decided to grab some of my favorites and post them all together. These new dads just melt my heart.
