Oh Baby!

Every once in a while I have a moment where I decide I want kids... I think I could have kids, I'm ready for that... then one of my sisters in nice enough to let me baby sit. Urge gone.

Tonight I was lucky enough to watch Cohen for a couple of hours. I do mean lucky... He is such a cute kid. A bit of a cryer at times, but so so cute. In the midst of dinner, bath time and bed I was able to have an impromptu photo shoot. Here are a couple of the fun bath time shots.

Another Tag....

At least this is a photo tag... Thanks Ang

This is a photo I took very early on in the journey... Didn't have my new camera yet and have to say... it isn't my favorite, but it's alright. I will attempt this shot many more times in the future I am sure.

Rules for the Tag:
1. Go to your pictures
2. Upload the fourth picture from the fourth file
3. Post the picture
4. Tag four friends

So... Jen, Kelly, Meghan, Eric.... you're it!

Equal Rights For All

These last few weeks have held quite the discussion about equality and civil rights for all Americans. With the recent passing of Prop 8 in California as well as the laws passed in Arizona and Florida debate on the issue has been very common.

It is sad and unfortunate that in this day and age 52% of people in California still feel it is okay to discriminate against a group of people. That people believe they have the right to push their beliefs and morals on to others. That two people in love cannot declare their love to one another in the same civil ceremony as their neighbors.

Another very unfortunate and somewhat disturbing side to the passing of Prop 8 is the hate streaming from and the assumptions being drawn by supporters on both sides of the issue. I 100% understand the hurt and sadness that the passing of these laws has incited and am hurt myself. I wish with all my heart my friends and family will one day have the same basic rights I do. At the same time I firmly believe everyone has the right to take part in democracy and vote they way they choose based on their conscience (whether or not I agree with their vote or the outcome). With that being said I do not believe any one's morals should be forced on anyone else. Tolerance and acceptance are key in this situation and disturbingly something that seems to be missing. This is an issue that isn't going away, an issue that needs to be given proper attention, an issue that needs to be heard and an issue that needs to be given fair and equal treatment. This is a civil rights issue and just as racial equality and women's rights took time this issue will also take time. For the sake of all gay and lesbian members of the human race it is a right I hope comes sooner rather than later.

This last Saturday there was a nationwide protest against Prop 8. Unfortunately I was at work and was unable to attend. However my friend Eric went and took quite a few pictures of the protest here are a few of the shots he took. Also, here is the link to the Salt Lake Daily Photo blog where you will find quite a few more shots from the day.

Farewell to the 2008 Soccer Season

With a disappointing loss to the New York Red Bulls the Real Salt Lake 2008 season came to an end last night. Congrats to the team for making it this far.

Here are a couple shots I took at the game. My sports photography needs A LOT of work!

A couple pics from the b-day party

Here are a couple pics from the birthday party we threw for Steve last week. Family, Fun and Chocolate cake. Who could ask for more? By the way... everyone should try a cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes... way yummy!

You Decide

I took this shot a few days ago and have been playing around with it in post production ever since. I can't decide which I like better... Full color or Black and White with a bit of color... So, let's vote on it. Let me know your favorite.
