Happy 75th Birthday Dad! I hope you have the best day ever! The past year presented numerous challenges for you. From health concerns to a death in the family to the addition of your 7th grandchild, your 74th year epitomized how life gives and takes away. Though our relationship hasn’t always been the best, I truly appreciate where we are now. You’re my best friend, guidance counselor, biggest fan, business advisor and best dad ever. I love you and appreciate you so much!

Thanks again for everything! Happy 75th Birthday Dad!!!

Love,
Chris

Here’s a look back at your adventures from age 74 to age 75. I’m excited to see where you go and what you accomplish this year!

When my dad was in the hospital, I made a quick visit to see him. He was discharged that day and was looking considerably better when I left the following day.

After we moved to Marana from Texas (again), my parents visited us! My dad fell in love with the saguaro cactus!

In August, we all traveled to Los Angeles for our annual Hsieh Family Reunion!

In November, I traveled back home to San Jose, CA to photograph Jen and Zach’s beautiful wedding!

Quite possibly my favorite photo of my dad and me. For his Christmas present, Brisa and I bought my dad cigars while we were in Hawaii for our babymoon. Before my parents went home, we were able to enjoy them together!

I asked my parents if they checked any luggage for their trip to Arizona and they said no, because it would take that much longer to see Paxton! =)

My parents were able to attend Paxton’s Baby Dedication at Casas Church!

Before they left, I did a quick photo shoot of my parents with Paxton!

And then my dad requested photos with this ginormous saguaro!

As I posted on instagram.com/labrisaphoto, with all of my dad’s health issues/scares over the years, I had serious doubts if he would ever meet my children. My dad is 75. His dad passed at the age of 65. Honestly, I feel like we’ve been living on borrowed time. Thankfully though, my dad’s health is getting stronger everyday. I never met my grandpa and I’m ecstatic that Paxton already met his! This image of my dad and Paxton warms my heart. I’ve learned so much from my dad and I can’t wait for him to continue sharing his wisdom with my son.
