Dad and Daughter Pose for Cute Mechanic-Themed Photo Shoot

The daddy-daughter duo love mechanics.

The shoot was in celebration of their birthdays and mutual love for mechanics.

"Like daddy, like daughter" is definitely true for one South Carolina toddler. 

Londyn Bennett-Dotson, 2, is used to watching her dad, Devante Bennett-Dotson, work as a mechanic. And she's clearly following in his footsteps. 

“Londyn loves to ‘help me,'” Devante told “I’m working on something, Londyn is right there.”

So for their birthdays, on Aug. 9 and Aug. 10, Londyn’s mom put together a cute daddy-daughter photo shoot with them both dressed as mechanics. Londyn had a pink belt to go with her coveralls and her own tool kit as well. 

Her mom, Ashleigh Sheppard, started snapping photos in their driveway without the toddler noticing.

“I just lifted up her car and pulled out the tools and she went to work,” Devante said. 

Devante said the skill runs in the family too. His own grandfather had him working on cars when he was just 2 years old.

“I do believe Londyn actually might want to be a mechanic later on in life because I turn my back one minute she's trying to take tires off her bicycle or messing with my motorcycle or her [toy] car,” Devante added. 

He said the photo shoot was special for him because he loves seeing Londyn follow in his footsteps.
