Kelsey Part II -portraits at the beach

I previously posted some of my favorite portraits from Kelsey's senior session. She wanted some beach portraits and we got some great ones. Here are just a few...


Thomas at the beach

Just some of the results of some quality time with mom (Dawn) and son at the beach. I only had to walk 57 blocks to make it to the boardwalk and meet them...but it was totally worth it!
We started planning this just after Thomas' last session a year ago. This type of session is along the lines of a "lifestyle" session and among my favorite type of shoot...especially with "old" friends. :)

Be sure to check out the collage at the end.

I love this shot! Check out Thomas, checking out those bikini babes.

A Rant on Cavalier Telephone

I'm not one to complain. If you know me, you know that I'm a very easy-going kind of guy.
I switched to Cavalier telephone about two months ago. If you or your friends or family are considering switching your phone service to Cavalier, DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!!!

I have had non-stop problems over these last two months, and as of six days ago I HAVE NO PHONE SERVICE AT ALL!
The problem is their customer service, or the lack thereof.

I spend the first five minutes of each call trying to get past the computer "person" who does 20 seconds of fake typing noise after each thing I say, and then directs me to the wrong department.

I'm trying to switch now to t-mobile's home service and every time they put a request in to Cavalier, something goes wrong and the cycle begins anew.

I've easily spent 10 hours on the phone - much of it on my cell phone since I don't have wired line service. I've submitted complaints to the FCC and the State Attorney General.

In short, i've done all I can do and I'm continuing to call daily.

If you are trying to contact me, please use the "contact" link at my website. I apologize for any inconvenience and I promise I'll reply right away.

I am not SPAM...ya heard?!!

Well, it's been a while since my last post. For everyone anxiously waiting on the edge of your seats...this post probably won't be what you were waiting for. :(
I've been on vacation, and in the midst of that, I received the following automated message from Blogger...

You Are Not Spam
You knew that already, and now we do too. We have now restored all accounts that were mistakenly marked as spam yesterday. (See: Spam Fridays)

We want to offer our sincerest apologies to affected bloggers and their readers. We’ve tracked down the problem to a bug in our data processing code that locked blogs even when our algorithms concluded they were not spam. We are adding additional monitoring and process checks to ensure that bugs of this magnitude are caught before they can affect your data.

So, I'm back in business. However, it's all about getting caught up on some other things first. Then, it's back to all the fantastic entertainment you've come to expect. :)
