This week's "With Food" theme had me craving the minis. I didn't own any but thought it was a great time to invest ...and I say invest because these guys are like $20 + a pop. So I bought 5 and ordered a few more. (ridiculous, I know for a girl who doesn't have a 100mm Macro lens) I thought, "Oh this will be easy. I'll bring the minis to the studio and stop by the store and pick up something I'll cook for dinner and Wham, the shoot and dinner. Easy Breezy." Not at all. Not Even close.  Seriously, this was hard.  So when you get ready to try your mini shoot. Get some long medical tweezers. These little painters are about the size of my fingernail on my ring finger. Every bump and move they fell between the asparagus. Drama. 30 minutes worth. And those tiny paint cans - Yikes there were 5 and they kept falling inside the space between my finger and my fingernail and bouncing on the floor. The two shown here are a miracle. So minis - tough but fun. Worth trying after a glass or two of wine.

29/52 Painted Asparagus is Hard work

I loved all the fun places you guys took your food shots this week. We went to the zoo, and the ball game and everywhere in between. Great work and thank you for keeping this weekly theme in some part of your busy week.

Week 30's theme is "Something NEW" 

Sneak Peek alert! Week 31's theme will be METAL

What's New with Daphne Ellenburg?

This week started with adventure - same as ever week around all the Ellenburgs. Jefferson found a Christmas ornament from the National Lampoons Vacation movie and it plays "Holiday Road" - So I've heard that song over and over again. He looked so cute running around with it. I let Michael take it away from him.


Got some highlights.


Bought some vintage crates.

Which made me think of this photo.


Tried out the Rocking Horse.


And the crates.

Hired an assistant that works for Sonic Slushes.

And became a pear farmer. (I baked them. They were FAB)


It's been quite the week! Wishing you a wonderful week filled with family, fun and Photography! Make it a GREAT week!
