I'm sure that Jennifer is extremely happy with today's event. I was able to purchase the camera I have been talking about non-stop for months driving her nuts, I'm sure. I ordered it online so now I just have to wait for it to get here. I will update everyone once I get......I sense another model hunt coming soon.

"Tripp" the light fantastic

I had the honor of getting to be the "official" photographer for Richard Lee Carlson III (AKA Tripp) the son of Erin and Rick Carlson.
Erin works with Jennifer and saw my pictures and the request for models. She said that she had a real fresh face. I told her that I would love to take pictures of a newborn and the plan was hatched. No pun intended.

Shortly after she had the baby, she would call me and we would work out a time for the photo shoot. That day ended up being this past Sunday and it was a blast. I'm not going to post the pictures here. I will have them on my FlickR page as normal, but I want them to be the ones that are introducing Tripp to the world. Thanks to Erin and Rick for allowing me this opportunity and being so gracious.

We live in a dangerous world

"We live in a dangerous world. And we need a president who understands the lessons of Sept. 11, 2001: that to protect America, we must stay on the offence, stop attacks before they happen, and not wait to be hit again. The man we need is John McCain."

Former Tennessee senator Fred Thompson

This statement is so far from the truth that the truth can't see the light of day. We were attacked on 9/11 and we had every right as a nation to seek out and destroy the enemy that attacked us. Wait!! We didn't do that. We went to a nation that did not attack us and started a war that we are still in. Now, the Republicans are saying that "we must stay on the offence". Do you think we might piss off more people with this tactic? The republicans have become experts at fear mongering. We have to wake up and smell the damm coffee. We are in trouble and if we don't we will be in a much worse place in 4 years.
