Portraits of a 2-Year Old

7.24.2014

My niece is turning two in a few days so my sister-in-law wanted to capture a classic portrait as her oldest girl leaves babyhood behind and enters the adventurous world of toddlerhood.  The idea was to create a timeless black and white portrait that really could've been taken at any point in the last century.  It's totally outside of my "normal" style of shooting but I thought the challenge could be fun and was more than happy for an excuse to spend some time with my sweet niece.  We spent about 20 minutes together, just the two of us, and I had no idea how it would go when we first started.  It required some creative thinking and a few Mickey Mouse stickers to keep her attention but I have to say, I'm pretty happy with the final product.  I think it'd be fun to make this an annual tradition to document how she grows and matures both physically and personality-wise in the years to come.

Have you ever done any "milestone" portraits with your family?  (Other than the always-embarrassing school photos, of course!)

Easy Homemade Tortilla Chips

7.23.2014

"homemade tortilla chips"

Since giving up the gluten, I find we always seem to have corn tortillas on hand (among the bags of rice and quinoa).  They're great for everything from a wrapping up a breakfast taco to dipping in chunky soup.  Or, as I prefer to have them, baked up into a crisp tortilla chip and dipped in creamy guacamole.  Yes, you can buy a bag of chips at the store but why settle for chips hanging out in a plastic bag on a shelf for days when you can have them hot from the oven and sprinkled in sea salt?  Plus, this recipe is so easy it's hard to even call it a recipe.  You could make these right now and snack on them for lunch.  Seriously.  Go ahead, make them.

What You Need

6 to 8 corn tortillas, or more if you want more chips
Olive oil
Sea salt

What You Do

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Brush the olive oil onto both sides of each of the tortillas, then stack the tortillas and slice them into eight triangles.
3. Line the triangles in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet then sprinkle them with sea salt.
4. Bake chips for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and slightly crisp.  Let them cool a bit on the baking sheet before enjoying with your fave dip.  Or munching on them all by themselves.  They're actually pretty addictive all on their own.
