This Stellar Dad Photographs His Astronaut Kid Boldly Going Where No Kid Wants To Go

Photographer Aaron Sheldon’s son originally got the idea to dress up like one of these tough rocketeers when he was afraid during a check-up. But Sheldon took his son’s statement and ran with it. The project took on a bigger meaning when he noticed that a kid’s entire life is like a mini mission to Mars: Their universe is totally alien, and everything they encounter is awe-inspiring.

In “Small Steps Are Giant Leaps,” Sheldon gorgeously documents his travels with this son, whom he hopes to get to New York, Washington D.C., and possibly Cape Canaveral to complete this project. If you want to keep his journey going, consider contributing to the Kickstarter campaign. Ironically, it’s also how NASA now funds most of its projects.

“The first shot we did in the project came about as my 4-year-old’s idea when I was helping him get over his fear of the doctors exam table. He decided to act brave like an astronaut and then asked if he could wear his spacesuit to his next appointment,” Aaron told Fatherly.
