sturdy-wrists asked: You seem like an awesome dad, man. Keep doing what you're doing, and you're gonna end up with some kick ass adults.

Thanks man, I’m trying!

sleepyheadinseattle asked: PS. I see you have children also, that's great. I have two, a son, almost 9, and daughter, about to turn 7, this week. I like your photo about your daughter reading. It's really cool when they can read by themselves. It's amazing how fast they learn new words, and so great when they actually love and enjoy it. This his must seem weird, I didn't even ask a question. I'm Alia, from West Seattle.

ha! that’s cool… I used to live in Seattle, it’s awesome there. I do love what I do, and right now I’m traveling with my 2 year old daughter which has to be the best trip I’ve ever taken. We’re having a blast. Thanks for the note!

oldenough2burmom asked: Nice photos. Glad I found you.

I never check these!!! thank you!

daddy’s hotel room nail salon is now open for business… yesterday I promised stella that I would buy her nail polish so today we went to the store and she picked out “forever pink” (of course) and tonight I did the honor. nails done and hotel hair dryer to set that shit. @torello eat your heart out. #dadlife #notesfromtheroad (at Terra Haute, Indiana)

baby gets what baby wants… in this case it was barbeque, which she’s been asking for all day. (“dinosaur food, daddy!” - an obvious reference to our neighborhood spot in harlem, dinosaur bbq) #dadlife #notesfromtheroad (at Ricks Smokehouse and Gril)

So after about 10 minutes of her running around and me taking photographs, stella came up to me and quietly asked, “daddy, will you fly with me?” Of course I will, sweetheart, I’d be honored. #dadlife #notesfromtheroad

so as many of you know, I’m on a road trip with my 2 year old daughter, stella. I’m also a professional photographer, director and dad. Yesterday, because of a post complimenting my work, I got nearly 150 new followers, some of whom we’re described as “jesus moms.” Well, someone decided the photos of my daughter were inappropriate (many she was not nude in, and none were graphic in nature by any means) and flagged them, resulting on my account being disabled by instagram. Thanks to support by many, including multiple emails being written on my behalf, my account is back up. 

Now, because the chickenshit who flagged my photos didn’t choose to just unfollow me, but rather enforce their will; and because they (whoever you are) won’t fess up to it, I’m going to block everyone who started following me yesterday. I’ve posted photos like that for years, and am very “free will” with how I raise my children, so I don’t need someone coming on now and trying to decide what is and isn’t appropriate for me in my life.

If you do want to admit who you are, my email is easily accessed through my profile page and you’ll spare the others from being punished for your view of “morality,” I’m all ears. Otherwise, sorry folks.

Here’s to a better, more interesting America. Have a nice day.

definition of true happiness: driving down the highway with all the windows rolled down, cranking “out of the blue” by julian casablancas and singing at the top of my lungs to my screaming and giggling baby girl… ❤️❤️❤️ #dadlife #notesfromtheroad
