Family Newborn Sessions | AWalker Photography Houston http://awalkerphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/6/newborn-sessions-awalker-photography-houston I often get asked what families should wear for newborn sessions.

My reply: Wear white! You can't go wrong! If anything, choose neutral colors so the focus will be the baby in your group photo.

You might notice that a lot of color in a family/group portrait is very distracting, but even more so in a newborn session. 

 

There is something about newborn portraiture and the color white: elegant, timeless, very lovely....

Pistachio Macarons | Houston Food Photographer http://awalkerphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/6/pistachio-macarons-houston-food-photographer My first time to make homemade pistachio french macarons!

In the past, I've only made almond and vanilla. These turned out nice!

The trick to making good macarons is to weigh your ingredients (I use grams) instead of using cup measurements.

My Macarons | Houston Food Photographer http://awalkerphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/5/my-macarons-houston-food-photographer I. LOVE. MACARONS.

These little patisserie beauties are an obsession of mine.

Lately I have been making my own, using Martha Stewart's easy recipe.

After watching countless YouTube videos on them, I think I am finally happy with mine!

I forgot to add color in the batter this time! Next time I will add pink.

 

 

 

Martha Stewart's Recipe for French Macarons

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 2/3 cup sliced blanched almonds (71 grams)
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar (117 grams)
  • 2 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (53 grams)
  • buttercream icing or lemon curd for filling

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees with rack in lower third. Place almonds in a food processor; process until as fine as possible, about 1 minute. Add confectioners' sugar; process until combined, about 1 minute.

  2. Pass almond mixture through a fine-mesh sieve. Transfer solids in sieve to food processor; grind and sift again, pressing down on clumps. Repeat until less than 2 tablespoons of solids remains in sieve.

  3. Whisk egg whites and granulated sugar by hand to combine. Beat on medium speed (4 on a KitchenAid) 2 minutes. Increase speed to medium-high (6) and beat 2 minutes. Then beat on high (8) 2 minutes more.

  4. The beaten egg whites will hold stiff, glossy peaks when you lift the whisk out of the bowl. Add flavoring and food coloring, if desired, and beat on highest speed 30 seconds.

  5. Add dry ingredients all at once. Fold with a spatula from bottom of bowl upward, then press flat side of spatula firmly through middle of mixture. Repeat just until batter flows like lava, 35 to 40 complete strokes.

  6. Rest a pastry bag fitted with a 3/8-inch round tip (Ateco #804) inside a glass. Transfer batter to bag; secure top. Dab some batter remaining in bowl onto corners of 2 heavy baking sheets; line with parchment.

  7. With piping tip 1/2 inch above sheet, pipe batter into a 3/4-inch round, then swirl tip off to one side. Repeat, spacing rounds 1 inch apart. Tap sheets firmly against counter 2 or 3 times to release air bubbles.

  8. Bake 1 sheet at a time, rotating halfway through, until risen and just set, 13 minutes. Let cool. Pipe or spread filling on flat sides of half of cookies; top with remaining half. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate.
