This piece is a Father’s Day gift for a wonderful father in my life. Two months ago, during a ride home from work, Mike talked excitedly about a great song he heard by Kelis, called Lil’ Star. He said he almost cried listening to the song because it made him think of all the obstacles his daughter, Sydney will encounter in life. After listening to the song, I fell in love with it. It is the best message a father can give to his daughter; no matter what you encounter in life…just keep trying. It immediately made me think of my Dad, who has been my biggest fan growing up. I may be in my 30’s, but I’ll never be too old to be daddy’s girl.
I asked both of my brothers to help me put together a gift for Mike for Father’s Day. He always says how Sydney is growing up so fast, so I wanted to capture a small piece of this wonderful little sunshine name Sydney!! God has blessed me with two very talented brothers, who worked so hard to make this gift happen. They have created such an amazing piece.
Early April, I asked Mike if I can take Sydney to the park for a couple of hours early one Saturday morning. My brothers Eric, Aries and nephew Angel met us at the playground. My brothers went right to work doing what they both do best. Even my nephew Angel was put to work…in fact he worked so hard in the scorching heat, that he fell asleep on a park bench near the end of the shoot.
Thank you Aries and Eric for all you’ve done to make this happen. Not only did you both spend hours at the playground capturing images of Sydney, but afterwards spent countless number of hours touching up the images and putting the video together. You guys do amazing work and it shows in this video. Angel, great job in keeping the video a secret buddy!! To all the wonderful father’s in my life…Happy Father’s Day!!!
