“Our job as parents is to act as their mission control and co-pilot to make sure they can explore as much of their new world as possible,” Aaron shared.

Aaron had the idea to start taking photos when he noticed how fascinated his son was while riding a bus one day.

When Aaron took his son to a doctor’s appointment, the little one asked to dress up as an astronaut so he wouldn’t be scared.

Since then, Aaron realized that his little astronaut sees his journey through earth as an explorer.
