Water water everywhere! Living so close to the gulf coast, I really wanted to find my water shot at the beach. Meet the Creamer girls. They made an excellent subject for me this week. Sidebar: I also wanted to photograph sailboats, so I got 'em both right here.

The Creamers were a super fun family to photograph. And any excuse to go to the beach works for me.

The water shots for this week were a wonderful mix from so many wonderful places. We saw more beaches, water hoses, splashes and glasses. Let's hit the top ten. Our weekly top ten is always no particular order. When you love the shot check out the artist, chances are you will enjoy more of their cool work.

Here we go...

What's NEW with Daphne Ellenburg?

The week started with Mike surprising the kids (and Me) with two go-Karts. I wasn't thrilled but it's growing on me. No, I haven't taken them for a spin.


Spent two days in Tallahassee at a workshop. Hung out with the indians for a bit - or as I like the call them, "The big Cat dream crushers" That's right, I went there.


Jefferson missed me the most. At least I'm pretty sure that's what he said.


Watched the Lego Movie.


Was forced to buy a new washer. {Sad Face.}

Bought some amazing Octoboxes for the studio and even assembled them myself.

And rocked out a Glam shoot for this 49 year old babe.  I can't wait to show these to her tomorrow!

And lastly, I put on my big girl pants and entered 12 shots into the WPPI first 1/2 competition.

If you like these collages, check out Fundy Software. I've got the newest updates this week - they are pretty cool and they are in a free standing app that doesn't require photoshop but is a one click edit to photoshop to make changes. Pretty cool stuff. If you have questions on the Fundy Suite - fire away, I've got all their products in our studio.

Wishing you a wonderful week filled with Family Fun and Photography!
