Cook it, click it - Food photography tips

This post is dedicated to all the hard working mommy’s who cook such delicious treats during the holidays. I and Lisa from Lifeblooming are adding this second post to our photography project, The Fledgling Photographers. We have decided to summarize few tips to click beautiful pics of the yummy food that you plan to cook for Thanksgiving this year.

I will cover the tips part while Lisa will bring up a sister post later. Just so you know, all the photographs in this post (and in all my posts) are clicked by me. I hope that will boost your confidence :) and give you a clear idea of what I am talking about. Lets get started. P.S the most important tip which will add that magical touch to your food photographs is the last one. So don’t miss it. || Read more

Toddler's first day at pre-school and after

My little birdie took off. At the age of two years and one month, we got her into day care. It is her first step towards making her own world. And it is not easy. Neither for her nor for us. But together we stepped into this phase of our lives. We are happy that our daughter is going to learn so many new things, meet so many new kids, make new friends.

I always thought it would be impossible for me to let her go, even to the school. The ‘going to the day-care’ phase never occurred to me. When I left her in the day care on first day, my heart ached real bad. The second day was even tough because she remembered what happened a day before. What gives us relief is that it is a good day care and they are taking nice care of our daughter.

Today I plan to pen down how we chose the day care, how we prepared to send her to the pre-school and what happened after her first day. Also we saw some changes in her behavior after first week. So I will mention it as well. || Read more

Tips to take memorable Halloween picture - Getting ready as cats for Halloween

Hurray! It is Halloween time of the year. We (you will come to know soon who ‘We’ are) are super delighted to bring to you a gift this festive season. I and Lisa from Lifeblooming have decided to collaborate some posts under our new project called…..(drum rolls please)…..Fledgling Photographers. We both love photography and are constantly trying our hands on different techniques to improve it. We learnt photography and editing photos from scratch, on our own. We are not experts, just learners who want to share what they know. And this gave us an idea to pen down some handy tips for all to take lovely pictures this festive season. So here we are. We will start with Halloween. || Read more

Yummy and easy apple tart recipe made at home

A mouth watering apple tart, something perfect to bake after apple picking. That was not the only reason for me to make this tart. It was husband’s birthday for which I made it. I decided to skip the usual cake and try something different. This was for the first time I made an apple tart. It turned out wonderful and it was so delicious. No I am not a baking expert. The recipe was very easy and even a first time baker would get it right. There is no way you can go wrong on this one. Doesn’t that make it the perfect Fall dessert? So lets cut the talk and get to work. || Read more

Beautiful apples on the branches on an apple tree

As per our promise to ourselves, we took Vidhi for apple picking this weekend. It was more like an extended second birthday celebration activity. We had this in mind for a long time and she loves apples, so an apple orchard was the best place to take her for some fun. We picked Cider hill family orchard as our destination. || Read more

DIY Polythene organizer and storage in 5 minutes and zero dollar

DIY Plastic bag organizer and storage in 5 minutes and zero dollar

I cannot express my irritation with grocery plastic bags wandering in my kitchen after a grocery trip. I bag them all in one plastic bag and press it into one of the two shelves I use for storing them. They are used for a lot of stuff which prevents me from throwing them all away. But they take a lot of space in cabinets and shelves. I guess I am not the only one who face this problem. So today I decided to sort it out for once and all by making a polythene organizer. || Read more
