Sweet Baby in the Woods

This little guy was such a great sport. I had a fun time with him and his mom this morning taking some fall portraits in the park. I love those baby smiles! (You can click on the image to see a larger version)

Four Sisters

October 21, 2007

Aren’t these sisters just the cutest? They were so easy to work with, and their matching dresses were just perfect for photos at the botanical gardens. (Click on the image to see a larger version)

Family Day

October 20, 2007

I got to spend the morning with this lovely family. The historic watermill and fall foliage made for a lovely setting for some family portraits.

Thank goodness for unseasonable weather

October 19, 2007

Well since we’ve been enjoying a little “indian summer” around here, my clients have been inspired to do some outdoor sessions. I had one this morning and I have two more this weekend. Here’s a quick preview this morning’s session. What adorable kids, and it’s fun to be able to photograph them in their own element.

I’ve been tagged

October 15, 2007

I’ve been tagged by the fun clothing designer, Johnett of sunshine*kisses. So I’ve been challenged to share a few little tidbits about myself.

Here are the rules which you must abide by if you are tagged:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.
3. Tag a few other people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

Okay, here are 7 things about me:
I handmade a quilt at age 18. I can speak Russian. I was my high school’s record-holder in triple jump. I’m left-handed. I have way too many files on my computer desktop. I used to play classical guitar. I have an orange bathroom (on purpose).

And I’m tagging two of my boutique clothing buddies: http://olliegirlboutique.blogspot.com/ and http://themonkeyandme.blogspot.com/.

Some Seasonal Fun–Recipe Included!

October 8, 2007

Well I was challenged by a photography contest to “do something creative with candy corn” and include children in the photo. So I decided to make it a fun activity for the girls. We created these yummy, and 100% edible (except the sticks of course!) pops. The recipe is my own idea, and I thought I’d share, in case anyone else is interested in trying it. Leave me a comment if you do!

Candy Corn Lollipops
(makes 4 lollipops)

8 strips of graham crackers
4 popsicle sticks
1 10 oz bag of candy corn
edible glue (see recipe below)

Place two graham crackers side by side to make a square. Use a circle cookie cutter or biscuit cutter to cut the graham crackers in a circle. (I suggest using two pieces of graham cracker so the circle can be a little larger–you’ll want to split the circle between the two crackers) Prepare edible glue (see recipe below). Glue two pieces of the graham cracker circle together, and glue graham crackers to the popsicle stick. Cover graham cracker with glue, and then stick the candy corns to the graham cracker circle. Wait for the glue to dry so that the candy corn are secure, and “paint” the sides and back of the circle with the white glue. Wait for the rest of the glue to dry, and enjoy!

To make edible glue (recipe courtesy of allrecipes.com)
1-1/2 teaspoons meringue powder (powdered egg whites)
2/3 cup sifted confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon water

Beat all ingredients at low speed for 7 to 10 minutes, or until icing forms peaks. Tip: Keep icing covered with a wet kitchen towel at all times. Icing can dry out quickly.
