"The Eyes have it" was a wonderful week 50 theme to photograph some of our favorite eyes to look into. It was nice to see so many beautiful children this week. The eyes of a child. There is nothing quite like it. Everything is so exciting to them. The smallest thing makes them twinkle like a star or cry like the rain. I think my favorite is that spark when they learn something new. Every day with the ones you love is a blessing. Without having to talk about it, Friday was a tough day for us, but so much worse for so many.  This weekend, I know we are all holding our babies a little closer. I get a little misty when I gaze into those tiny eyes that look just like mine.  I know you are too.  Pray. Pray hard.

Here we go...the top then is never in any particular order and I don't choose them at any particular time. I love them all week and really struggle to snag out ten every week. If you enjoy the artist, the link to their work is directly below, please visit their sites!

Week 51's theme is "Tradition" 

I photograph all my babes every month for the first 2 years. They change so much those first two years and I love that I can capture that exciting time for them. Baby Jefferson is 3 months old, isn't he a doll?

What's new with Daphne Ellenburg?

I started my weekend by working with the Help Portrait project in Fairhope, Alabama. Help Portrait is simple: Find someone in need. Take their portrait. Give it to them. It's such a wonderful experience. If you get the opportunity to do it next year in your area, do it. It's a GOOD feeling.



I photographed baby Jefferson's 3 month shots. He's such a happy baby! That makes me a Happy Mommy.

Michael breathed life into this terrible annoying toy. Madison now has a virtual crab. Beep after terrible beep ... he remains alive and well fed.


I found this treasure in Grant's Holiday bag of fun. Best candy ever in here.


I Wrapped a few Christmas gifts, Shopped for boots - unsuccessfully, and mailed out all my Christmas cards. But mostly, I'm working at one of our rental houses getting it ready for a new year of renting. I'm spending today painting. Sad face.  

The count downs continues, 7 days left according the Mayans...10 days til Christmas, just in case, make these the best 7 days ever!
