Eric Suhre

Eric Suhre

{Nominated By: Nicole Suhre} My husband is not just the best Dad, he is Super Dad! Eric is a web developer and photographer. During the work day, he is working with the fantastic team at Innovative Advertising to build business for local and national companies. On the weekends, he is a freelance photographer, turning memories into art for New Orleans and Northshore families. From the day we brought our son Xander home, Eric has always been up for diaper changes, bath time and playtime. He can make our son giggle and laugh like no one else can. For two years, when Daddy is in the room, no one else is. His super skills are all the more impressive when you know that he also battles Cystic Fibrosis every day. My husband shows my son every single day what it means to not let adversity stand in your way. Over the years, he has been a board member, volunteer and advocate for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. He was part of a group that helped found the Tulane Family and Advisory Board for the Tulane University Cystic Fibrosis Care Center to address family and patient concerns. Eric battles and fights for his health daily but never uses it as an excuse. He embraces it! If anything, he works harder than any dad I know to be present in the moment – to be a loving husband, a conscious parent and partner, and to be the best dad he can be to Xander. Eric and Xander are best friends and is truly a man that our son can look up to and be just like as he grows up. I feel such joy knowing my husband is teaching our son to never take anything for granted and how to become a good, kind (Super) man.

Congratulations Eric!! You are the winner of the awesome prize pack giveaway worth over $700!
