what to do... what to do

What to do with my hair...  AHHH!!!

Ha!  That is seriously what my hair looks like after I tease it..  It scares Logan! 

This last picture was taken last year at Christmas.  I really like me with short bangs... but I am in a dilema.  Well...  Originally I wanted to grow out my hair again {I really miss my long hair} and will my long hair I wanted to try long bangs...  Well Long bangs are FRUSTRATING me and they arent even that long!  A part of me wants to tough it out to see what it will look like... and a part of me wants to cut short bangs again and keep my hair the same length and continue to let it grow.  What do you think?  I would appreciate any tips or help here.  I ask Logan and he is no help...  I say I want short bangs he says great... I say I want long bangs and he says greater!  =)

new backdrops... yeah

I'm going to apologize in advance... these aren't the sharpest images... but they are cute. I had too much fun playing around then my battery died... darn battery. Can you believe Larkyn in 7 months old!?! Whoa how time flies!

So Amy and I went and got backdrops yesterday... yipee!  I am so excited for this year.  Now I just need that darn lens...  Let me know if you are intereted in having you pictures done.  I have pretty competitive prices and some great incentives. 

chicken alfredo pasta

This is actually a recipe I got from my sister in law {Jen} and then I have added all my little quirks to it...  Enjoy!

all you need:
10-12 oz of pasta {approx}
2 chicken breasts
1-2 mushroom caps {I buy the pack of already cut mushrooms at the store}
1 1/3 cup whipping cream
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup butter {i use a lot less... that is what the recipe called for}
1/4 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp garlic salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp salt {again this is what the recipe calls for... I add minced garlic, probably 1/2 tsp more black pepper & oregano, and then my secret weapon... creole seasoning.  WE LOVE FLAVOR IN OUR HOUSE!! =) }
2/3 cup shredded parmeasan

ok now:
-boil pasta
-I boil the chicken, but however you want to cook it... have at it then I shred the chicken and add some pepper too it. 
-sautee mushrooms in a little butter or olive oil {ok... more Haylie here...  I add minced garlic to the mushrooms here and some black pepper}
-mix the cream, milk, and butter in skillet... add oregano, garlic, pepper, salt and my secret weapon creole seasoning
-Bring to boil and then simmer until sauce has thickened.  Stir in your cheese, mushroom, chicken and pasta!

Voila!  Now you have a dinner in approx 20-25 min and it should serve 4 adults.  Logan eats alot so in our house its more like 3 adults!

p.s. people... I dont claim to be a master chef or anything of that nature.. this is good food to us so don't hate me if its not your fav.  also... the lighting in my house really bites... so again the photo isnt very nice.  - thats all!!  =)

shoot for the stars...

For 2010 I have decided to push my photography skills and learn more about my camera, photoshop, lighting... the whole works.  I have been studying a lot the past couple weeks.  When I say studying I mean... going back to the super basics!!  Its been so long since I actually worked to capture an image so I decided that a refresher course would be the perfect cup of tea {getting to know your camera 101} ... I am super excited for this year! 

Here's a couple shots I got of Larkyn... My lens isn't the best so my shutter speed was way slow and my aperature was too high...  Hopefully I'll be able to buy a nice lens soon!  Both pics were taken with natural light in my living room.  I played up the blues in the first one... and it looks like I had a backdrop =)  AND I shot these in RAW and looky looky I finally figured out my photoshop & bridge {it really helps when you acutally download the updates}   

I am super excited for my upcoming shoots and if you know anyone who is interested let me know.  I will soon have a small studio and I will always always shoot outdoors!  I love natural light!!  I am going to look for backdrops tomorrow with my friend Amy... wish us luck!! 

p.s. these pics were of Larkyn's first scratch...  LOL!!  I had to take a pic!
