On the 10th of July, this dad celebrated his daughter’s 8th birthday by having a mermaid photoshoot with her. In pink costumes. Splashing their fins in a picturesque river. I mean, if this isn’t parenting goals, we don’t know what is. Desirae Deal, the photographer who captured the adorable duo, did an awesome job of portraying the wonderful time they had together. Their smiles and laidback body language really show how much fun the dad and daughter had throughout their little swim. After she shared the pics on her Facebook page, they quickly went viral.
