04.27.09 rain, rain, go away

A flooded basement in Butler County, Kansas. Ah, the joys of Kansas weather. 

Here's a video I shot of the very colorful home owner (sadly, I couldn't use most of his comments since he was a little too expressive for our Web site).

04.26.09 after the show comes the cleanup

I promise this will be the last time you see a photo about Gridiron this year.

04.25.09 What's wrong?

I actually stepped outside the Diva Den to shoot this picture from the wings. That's Bucky doing his famous "What's Wrong?" skit?

04.24.09 looking into the Den

Stan peeks into the Diva Den. I told you people that I don't get out of that den too much. I will see the outdoors on Sunday after the show closes. Tonight is the last night.

04.23.09 I haven't seen much outside of the Orpheum lately

The "Diva Den" got a little more diva-y last night with the addition of beautiful pink roses from my sweetie. We had a great opening night. If you're not coming to the show, well, shame on ya.

04.19.09 the meaning of life and Gridiron

VZ takes a moment to meditate during Gridiron practice. I'm sure she was probably concentrating on her lines or thinking about eating more Cheetos and mini cake donuts.

04.18.09 Art @ the Arb

Here's Monica Taylor singing just before the Mudbugs took the stage at the Bartlett Arboretum during Art @ the Arb. The event continues tomorrow. 

Check out our groupies (and me) in our matching shirts.

04.14.09 Poppy and Puddin'

This lovely wooden postcard was sent from Robin with the surprise announcement that she and her honey got married on Easter Sunday in a small ceremony at the Arb. I'm so excited for those two, Micah and Sister Stella.

04.13.09 tulips and two lips

My lovely assistant and I did an engagement shoot at the Bartlett Arboretum today for an incredible couple (we'll also be shooting their wedding later this summer). 

The Arb is freaking gorgeous right now with color popping out all over the joint. You should check it out yourself  (WARNING: Mudbugs plug coming right up) this weekend at Art at the Arb. It's a great event where you can take in (and home) art, nature and the natural wonder that is the Mudbugs Cajun & Zydeco Band at 4:30 on Saturday, April 18.

04.12.09 a very rockin' Easter

CRG played with the band at Grace Presbyterian. He's singing Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" here with his bro, Nick. They also did U2's "In The Name Of Love" (two songs you don't normally hear in most churches). 

The band director shared a little bit of Easter love with all of his peeps at the end of the service.

Did back-to-back senior photo shoots for two sibling seniors with the help of my trusty assistant (shown above shlepping stuff on a long hike).

04.06.09 Korg in the kitchen

Carter has been playing his Korg in the kitchen lately. We learned that it's probably what the creators of "Baby Got Back" used in the classic song.

Check out this video I shot on Saturday. It's the first in an ongoing series I plan to do of musicians in my kitchen. Uche was at our place on Friday serenading us while CRG cooked up some Indian food.

04.04.09 registry respite

CRG tests a pillow while we picked out items to put on our wedding registry at Bed, Bath & Beyond. He went with this heavenly concoction.

04.03.09 limeade

A Diet Cherry Limeade from Sonic. Good stuff.

04.02.09 grip-n-grin

I photographed Brian congratulating Fernando for winning the "Best of the Eagle" award for 2008 photography. The winning picture was a moving picture of an older brother shielding his younger brother's eyes from a crime scene where a mother and daughter were killed by a drunk driver in front of a school. Oddly, the award was presented on the same day the drunk driver was sentenced
