What a day! First off, today is the birthday of the state of Kansas. I know this a) because I’m from Kansas b) because they mentioned it today during the KU vs. K-State basketball game (in which the Jayhawks stomped the crap outta those Wildcats, as it should be) and c) because on this day a dozen years ago, Jamie proposed to me. He didn’t purposely propose on Kansas day, but my mom uses it as a reminder, and now so do I. Someday maybe I’ll tell you that story, but not today.
But none of that has anything to do with this photo! I shot this image today at a christening at a Russian Orthodox church in town. Man, was it an interesting ceremony, and holy cow, was that the best-behaved baby I have ever seen. Barely a whimper as he was dunked into the water three times. He just quietly watched the 45-minute ceremony with his big eyes open — very, very cute. This photo was of the dome of the church, which was so lovely and ornate. I was standing directly under a huge chandelier that hung from the center of the dome. Just a really great place and event to photograph all together.
Then later tonight we hit up a house party before seeing Mark Mallman and his band, Ruby Isle, hit the stage at the Triple Rock. But you know what? That show started after midnight, so I’m gonna cheat and show you *those* photos tomorrow so I can head to bed. What? My blog, my rules ;).
