Funny Photography

Some days, you just need something that is light and funny and makes you smile. I pretty much always get that from Dave Engledow. He spends his days documenting his time with his adorable daughter, Alice Bee. Most of it on his own, because his wife in one of the precious and brave few who are serving their country.

Dave's works of art usually feature him and Alice in some sort of precarious position. And they always include his signature accessory: a stark white ceramic mug that reads, "World's Best Father". 

Here are just a few of my favorites:

Daddy Style
This one is Over the Top
All work and no play makes Daddy a dull boy...
We've all been there...

But Dave isn't a one-trick pony. He also takes hauntingly beautiful images like this one of his wife leaving for a one-year tour of duty in Korea.

Commence ugly cry

As if that wasn't enough, Dave is also hilarious and says things like,

"As many parents know, certain foods with high acidity (like oranges and tomatoes) can cause irritation in the diaper area. During one of these outbreaks, Alice Bee was begging me for a cherry tomato, and I had to tell her "No sweetie, you can't eat that right now--it'll hurt your bum-bum".
She looks at me like I'm crazy and says, "No, Daddy, I wan' put it in my MOUF!"


'This morning while playing with Alice Bee, she gives me a big hug and says "You're my best Daddy...EVER!" I'm not exactly sure who these other daddies are I'm competing with, but it's still nice to hear that I'm #1."

Just thought I would share something that always makes smile. If you need some puppy dogs and rainbows in your day, be sure to check Dave out on Facebook.
