The “Our Life is Here” blog circle is continuing with the monthly color theme and March’s color was GREEN, naturally. We were lucky to have several days of 70+ degree weather this month and the grass seemed to green up overnight. Spring is finally here!!! Take a gander at a few of the green things I managed to photograph this month and then be sure to click the link at the bottom to continue through the circle!Emily Poston Photography Jefferson City MO Newborn & Family Photography_1224.jpg

I first met Cora and her parents at her newborn session last year. She was the perfect baby then and she still is! I love that fiery red hair and the way her personality really shines. She was the happiest little girl, especially once I brought out the balloons. I was thrilled to be able to do an in-home lifestyle shoot for her first birthday photos. Her mommy and daddy worked really hard on her nursery and I adore how the shots in the crib turned out. We finished off her session with a cake smash and bubble bath. What a grand way to spend the day!Emily Poston Photography Jefferson City MO Newborn & Family Photography_1187.jpg

This year I am part of a photography challenge group where we endeavor to shoot at least one photo a week. February was challenging for me and I ended up using one photo from last month…though I did edit it this month! That counts, right?! We were able to do some outdoor activities thanks to warmer weather early in the month. Unfortunately, we got a couple of snow showers later into February and started feeling a little cooped up. I did manage to get a few nice portraits of my daughter using one of my new backdrops. Take a gander and then be sure to click the link at the end to Susan’s post!

I have made this recipe countless times over the past 10 years. Since it uses canned tomatoes, it is great any time of year. I vary the flavor of this by using different herbs. My favorite flavor is Italian herb. If I’m feeling especially lazy, I will buy canned tomatoes that already have herbs added in. Dill is my other favorite flavor for this. Enjoy!

Herb Tomato Bisque

1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T. olive oil
14.5 oz. can stewed or diced tomatoes (undrained)
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1.5 cups chicken broth
1 t. dried herbs of choice (I prefer dill or Italian herbs)
4 oz. cream cheese
salt & pepper to taste

Add olive oil to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic for 5 minutes, or until starting to soften.

Stir in canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken broth and herbs. Cover and simmer on low heat for 30 minutes.

Remove pan from heat and add cream cheese. Using an immersion blender (or traditional blender), puree until smooth.

Serves 4

Pink is the color we chose to focus on for February. Naturally. I figured this would be no problem, what with all the pink clothes, shoes, toys, hair things, etc. that one tends to accumulate when two little girls are around. The trouble is, since I finished my 365 project last month, I have been so unmotivated to pick up my camera! The freedom I’ve gained from not having to shoot daily is taking a toll on my personal pictures. It could be the bitterly cold weather we’re having, too. Hopefully when the warm weather returns I’ll get more motivated to pick up the camera. For now, here’s a peek into my month of *PINK*!
