This is Why I Hate the Government

White House Air Force One Photo Op: $328,835

President Barack Obama ordered a review of a publicity-photo shoot with one of the planes that serves as Air Force One that cost taxpayers $328,835 and caused a furor in New York City.

Obama said he wasn’t informed in advance of yesterday’s low-altitude flight over New York Harbor, which rattled windows in New York’s financial district and prompted some office workers to flee buildings in fear it was a terrorist attack.

“It was a mistake,” Obama said today before a meeting at FBI headquarters in Washington. “It will not happen again.”

I’m not blaming Obama. I’m not blaming any one particular person. I’m not blaming the military.

I am blaming the entire governmental system. All of it.

Not only did they approve a meaningless waste of tax money (again…that’s $328,835), but they scared the mess out of New York citizens who saw a low-flying plane and understandably thought it was 9/11 all over again. So this was not just wasteful, but plain (Oooo…pun intended) stupid on the part of whoever was part of this whole operation.

The Robinsons

I can’t begin to tell you how much fun this shoot was. These two kids are some of the funniest, craziest, cutest little people on the planet. I hope the Robinson family is as happy as I was with how these turned out. You guys rock!

Erin – Senior Portraits

Erin came up to Shreveport on a day that felt like a hurricane training exercise, but we braved the winds, fought the good fight, stayed the course, etc., and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Erin’s a senior from Pineville, LA, and I hope she enjoys the shots as much as I enjoyed taking/editing them.

Thank you, Erin!

The Vercher Family

WOW!

The blog has gotten absolutely no love at all as of late. I’ve been too busy to blog anything though, so that’s a good thing. The first of an upcoming four-set barrage: the Verchers.

They drove up from South Louisiana to visit family, and while they were here we linked up and had a BLAST in taking pictures in Shreveport. This is a family of five, all outgoing, all friendly, all just a little bit crazy (in the fun-to-be-around way). 🙂

Thank you guys so much! I had an absolutely fantastic time with y’all, and I’m so glad we finally got together for this shoot. Y’all rock!
