Brighter Future, Better Kansas City

This weekend I had the privilege of photographing Donnelly College’s 10th annual SHINE gala, held at Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs. Our advancement team started the day early, with a quick break for a stadium tour before guests started arriving. (In addition to photography, I also designed the invitations, program, signage, slideshow, and more.) The evening included lots of mingling, excellent hors d’oeuvres, a program featuring student and alumni panelists, and a time to raise more funds to keep costs down for underserved students. It was an incredible evening, and I’m so happy I had the chance to capture it!

Photo of the Day: Go…Chiefs!

Possibly the most anticipated NFL game of the season, at least in my neck of the woods, is tonight’s Chiefs vs. Broncos game! My husband and I had the unique opportunity to tour Arrowhead Stadium last week. Ironically, the tours are a lot more popular this year than in years past. 🙂 Did you know the Arrowhead logo on the locker room floor has been there since the 70s, and it’s bad luck to step on it? As you can see, it’s still perfectly white.
