The Photo Gallery: Green

| July 3, 2013

This week’s theme for the Photo Gallery on the Sticky Fingers blog is Green. These two images distinctly stand out in my mind when I think of this beautiful and natural colour.

The pretty green lane we wandered down when we were on holiday in Suffolk in 2011.

There’s a new and exciting range of affordable and stylish homeware at House by John Lewis. This stylish range incorporates a mix of everyday essentials for your home with a modern and uncluttered feel. Designed with the contemporary urban home in mind the House range blends seamlessly into your existing environment.

We love this new range and it fits so well in a home with babies and children. It’s modern, affordable and there’s a delightful selection of colours to brighten your home.

I enjoy cooking hearty and warm meals for my family especially now the weather is changing. The Oven to Tableware dishes will look great in any kitchen and are made from durable stoneware in a striking red finish. They retain heat well and provide a convenient way to serve meals straight from the oven to the table.

How to Take the Best Baby Photos

| January 8, 2012

Every time you’re with your little one you’ll want to capture the moment and take the best baby photos.

I’ve been amazed at the speed my baby has grown and developed. Each day she looks slightly different and surprises me with something new.

One of the best ways to capture these memories is with a good quality, easy to use digital camera. This way you can be out and about, running around and still manage to snap away.

The Olympus VR-340 Digital Camerahas outstanding reviews. It’s a slimline camera with a powerful lense and 10x optical zoom. With a 16 megapixel image sensor and HD (720p) movie recording you will always be able to capture and share those special times.

Once you’ve got the right camera, how do you take the best baby photos?

Numerous books have been written on this subject but the two which really stand out for their ease of use (you don’t need any prior knowledge of photography) and lack of technical jargon are:

Both books showcase beautiful photos which provide inspiration for settings.

And if you’re like most time strapped parents, you’ll be wanting to save as much time as possible when transferring your photos from your camera to your computer.

To quickly and easily transfer hundreds of photos from my camera to my computer I use the Integral USB External Memory Card Readerand at around £2 it’s worth it’s weight in gold!

All you need to do is put your memory card into the USB slot of the SD Reader and plug it into a USB port on your computer. It then transfers all photos and videos in a few seconds, directly to your computer. It’s so much faster than transferring them directly from your camera to your computer! Saving you precious time.
