My Brother is in Trouble

Back at the end of July Mary and I were in Las Vegas for Chris Webber's fund raising event Bada Bling which my wife, Mary and her business partner, Wendy of Nouvelle Roux designed and produced. I was there shooting for the event and I was exhausted afterward. So much so, that I went on a little trip to the Grand Canyon with my brother, Tim and his two girls, Emma and Katie.

We stayed in Williams, AZ. and drove north to visit the GC but while we were in Williams, the girls wanted me to do a photo shoot with them (my brother did too). So we went into old town Williams as the sun was setting and had some fun. And with very little direction, these girls knew what to do.... My brother is in big trouble.... Check 'em out!

Full Circle Dance Company

So for those of you that don't know, this summer I followed the Full Circle Dance Company from Step One Dance Studio and took pictures during their practices that lead up to August 1st and 2nd performances at the Benvenuti Performing Arts Theatre in Sacramento. The show was called Emotions and it was awesome! So I took a little over 7,500 pictures over a four month period and now I'm putting together a book for them to document the experience. It was totally fun to be around the ladies and watch the energy, enthusiasm, spirit and passion they have for dance. And I have to tell you, I was totally in awe of what I saw them do between the long hours of practice to the choregraphy to the promotion of their event, these ladies are professionals.

So here's another fun clip I made with a cool on-line video maker called Animoto with some of the practice photos I took. Check it out...
