Kristen Schmid turns her lens towards her own family in order to capture heartwarming father-son photography. The project, titled 'Father to Son,' documents the complex, ever-evolving relationship between her husband, Ted, and their eldest son Sam. The project spans over seven years, recording Sam's growth from newborn to youngster, and the development of the father-son bond.

Of her project, Schmid states, "I am interested in what it feels like to be the parent, and in what it feels like to be the child. I am trying to distill what I know is important about how they interact with each other, and how that changes over time."

Schmid notes the polarity of parenthood; it can encompass dual, often conflicting emotions, such as play and discipline or love and frustration. Beyond simply being heartwarming, Schmid's series explores the emotional mosaic that is parenthood. Stats for Precious Parenthood Photography Trending: Older & Warm
