Adorable Tea Party Photos Of Military Dads And Daughters

Totally cute.

Photographer Vanessa Hicks is always thinking of ways to honor members of the military with her creative talents. Since April is the Month of the Military Child, she created an adorable photo series featuring military dads having tea with their daughters.

"As a Navy veteran myself, I knows the sacrifices military families [make] when a parent is deployed," Hicks wrote to A Plus. "My husband, Josh, has served in the Navy for 16 years, leaving [our] daughters without their dad during his deployments. I wanted to create a special moment between these service members and their daughters. Because, at the end of the day, while these service members are our nation's heroes, they really are just their children's heroes."

Military children are sometimes overlooked for their outstanding strength, especially since they relocate 10 times more often than civilian families. Hicks' photo series creates awareness of what these kids sacrifice so that their parents can protect us.

Here are 13 amazing photos of little girls playing dress-up and drinking tea with their military fathers.
