Man has to hide in Christmas photo shoot when ‘Daddy’s girl’ refuses to leave his side

Don’t dads make the best Christmas props?

When this baby girl was posing for a holiday photo shoot, she proved to be quite the high-maintenance model. She demanded one thing for the tightly run set: Her father had to be in the shoot. No, not just present — in the shoot! 

Luckily, her dad was more than happy to accommodate his precious girl. TikToker Phoebe Felix uploaded the video of her husband and daughter’s “behind-the-scenes” magic. 

“When she’s that much of a daddy’s girl you have to improvise on the photoshoot because she won’t leave his side,” the video text read

The set included a decorated Christmas tree, a fireplace complete with stockings and a camera ready to go — but one of these things was not like the other. 

Dressed in her holiday best, the little girl sat on top of a soft white mound. But on second glance, it was her father wrapped in a blanket to play the role of a sofa. 

The family posted a follow-up to show how the photos — with and without dad’s face — turned out. 

“Now you have to do some form of this shot every year – I’m seeing senior year, prom pic, engagement,” a user wrote

“This is the cutest. He will forever cherish this photo of his little girl,” another said

“This happened with my daughter when we hired a professional photographer to take her photo. We got the photo but in it she is holding my finger,” someone shared
