New Engagement Shoot

The last time I posted asking for feedback on an engagement shoot was that gritty graffiti extravaganza of a shoot I did in April and the consensus was that the photos weren't "engagementy" enough.

Well, I feel that I have rectified that with my newest engagement shoot.

Please go check it out on the front page of my site .

You folks are the ones who's opinions I value, so please, leave feedback, and I truly don't think it will be anything the same as last time.

Cheers blogosphere,

The lie: The United States has the best health care in the world.

The liars: A slew of U.S. presidents, politicians, journalists, commentators, and everyday citizens

The debunking: There is one yardstick by which U.S. health care distinguishes itself: cost. The United States spends more -- in total dollars, percentage of GDP, and per capita -- than every other country on Earth.

On virtually every other broad metric, the claim that U.S. health care stands for global excellence is demonstrably false. The United States doesn't take a top spot in either the World Health Organization or nonpartisan Commonwealth Fund rankings. The American health-care system is not best in terms of coverage, access, patient safety, efficiency, or cost-effectiveness. It does not produce the best outcomes for diseases such as cancer, heart disease, or diabetes; for the elderly, the middle-aged, or the young; or in terms of life expectancy, rates of chronic diseases, or obesity.

Which countries do come out on top? Often -- France, Switzerland, Britain, Canada, and Japan. On the World Health Organization's list, the United States comes out 37th

Not saying I think Obama's system is going to work or that socialized is the way to go or anything like that, but I'm just tired of hearing about how great our system is. Phooey.

That it's been so long. Just been super busy with summer. School starts tomorrow and life will return to relative normalcy.

Expect this blog to be more active again, as I hope all of yours will be too.

Also, just took my first set of baby pictures yesterday and am 100% thrilled with the results. They are on my website at . Go check em' out!

2 things

HUGE thanks to Padfoot for helping me get the site up and running without any bugs. Any and all photo updates will be over there from now on, so if you use it, update your rss feeds.

Also, does anyone have any personal recommendations for the printing of business cards? Any places you've used before? I'm looking for features like rounded corners and matte finishes..

thank you blogosphere. Hopefully you will be less dead soon.

EDIT: Business cards will be done in 3 days. Here they are-- tell me what you think. Looking for VERY simple but bold.

They will be printed on thick cardstock with a matte UV finish with big fat rounded corners. So excited.

new blog up and running

kind of.

ok, now I need some serious help. I don't understand the best way to create a blog post with a lead of picture, and then click to follow galleries. I don't understand how to make the intro slideshow work. I don't understand why and take me to two different sties. Basically, I need help. Can I meet with some of you guys that have a ton of knowledge about all of this? Help? Please?

Already bought the domain and server space and all of that, so I'm not going to not pursue this.

Thanks guys,

21st birthday

Had a great birthday that I spent with family, Ben and Nat. Good times were to be had as we hung out at the Yardhouse for my "first" beer. Nat got me the Canon fisheye and I got enough money to go on our road trip. Hot dang!
