The Otchy Family at Disney

By the time this posts, I'll either be finishing up photographing my first international wedding, or I'll be sleeping it off. Yes! We're in Thailand! We'll be back in a few days, and I look forward to sharing our latest adventure. Wish me luck traveling with my cameras and film. I may be a bit nervous about it....

In September, I had the pleasure of photographing a husband and wife photography team based in Ohio and their two precious daughters. It was the best shoot location - Magic Kingdom in Orlando! We had a great time, even in the hot Florida summer. I'm a huge fan of photographing life as it happens - and what a great thing to document your family's summer vacation at a theme park, a first haircut, or your kids favorite activities. Much better than "stand and say cheeses!", though those can be good, too. ;)

First Dance Class

Tova has been dancing around the house, doing legit ballet positions and listening to Tchaikovsky on repeat for several months now. We had reached our limit for learning off of Angelina Ballerina shows, YouTube videos, and books; so naturally, we signed Tova up for dance class. It is one of her favorite things. These are a couple of snaps I was able to take her first day, when the door to her classroom was open. During class, the door is shut and we moms line up and peer through the spaces between blinds on a tinted window.

We're sad to leave her teacher, Ms. Jennifer, and her classmates. If you have a dance studio to recommend in Seattle, please let me know!

Xoxo, K

Smoothies - Part 5 - Raspberry-Nut

Happy Monday! This is the fifth and final smoothie recipe. It comes at a good time for me, as I have huge life transitions going on right now. I'm going to start blogging only once a week, which I'll hopefully be able to keep up with. We're headed to Thailand in just over a week, then David moves to Seattle, then the holidays, and then Tova and I will move. During this time, we're selling our house, our car, and getting rid of as many things as possible! There is so much to do!

The Raspberry-Nut Smoothie is an interesting mixture of tartness and creaminess. It takes me a sip or two for my taste buds to figure it out, and then I can't stop eating it. So good!

three-quarters cup soy milk
three-quarters cup frozen raspberries
half banana
one tablespoon natural almond butter
one tablespoon agave nectar (or honey)
one tablespoon flaxseed meal

Recipe altered from Real Simple Magazine.

My general smoothie guidelines:
-Try your best to use frozen foods instead of ice. Your smoothie won't get watery if it needs to sit, and it keeps better in the fridge when you have leftovers. A good rule of thumb for a great consistency is using half frozen items and half fresh items.
-Don't add sugar. If you must, use honey or agave nectar.
-Use fresh fruits and vegetables that are in season, buy everything else frozen.
-Always keep a good stash of frozen fruits in the freezer (I love Cascadian Farms). It's a terrible thing when all you want is a smoothie, but you're out of supplies!

Enjoy!
Kallie
