the best


Sweetest dude ever, Mark Cornelison, was the official photog once more at the Library’s annual Spring Gala last night. I snapped this selfie with him in between shots as we talked about his baby, who actually isn’t a baby anymore. If she turns out to be as kind as her dad her life is going to be nothing but roses. Let me just reiterate what a fantastic photographer Mark is, too. UK is so lucky to have him on staff, and I’m thankful to run into him from time to time. He always brightens my day.

The Man


Mark Cornelison was one of my favorite people before the Honor Flight, but after? He ought to be given a gold star and a big, fat raise, and he’s way up on the list of favorite people. He worked his butt off from beginning to end. His work ethic isn’t what makes him awesome though. He is one of the sweetest, most genuine people I’ve ever met. He and Mom took to each other like ducks to water. She took comfort in his kindness when we got rerouted after a long, long day, and I was so grateful for that. I’m very lucky to call him friend.

So, this happened today. Front page of the Herald-Leader was not what I was expecting first thing in the morning, or anytime for that matter. Thanks to the awesome Mark Cornelison for picking something that makes me look okay, and especially thanks for capturing such a cool moment. Those girls loved mom, and she sure loved them.

summer pictures


I saw Mark Cornelison this morning as he was setting up what must surely be the billionth group photo before the end of the school year. Mark recently joined the UK ranks after spending 25+ years as a photojournalist at the Herald-Leader. Their loss was UK’s gain to say the least. Mark is a top-notch photographer and a super nice man to boot. I was glad to see him on the job. I didn’t disturb him, though. I just did a hit and run photo, kind of like I did with the dude in the hammock (below). I’m digging the hammock phase I must say. They look so relaxing. There’s just one more week of classes, so I better get to snapping while there’s fun left to snap. Maybe I’ll run across Mark again and grab another hit and run shot. It doesn’t take much to tickle me.

Today concludes the last of the Library Spring Gala photos. You met Mark Cornelison back in 2014. He was the official photog at the gala, and boy did we all have a good time telling him congratulations. Not, because he was the photog, but because he’s going to be a dad very soon! I’m very excited for him. He’s great guy and he’ll be a great dad. The gala was fun, the people spectacular, and I am a lucky woman to know them all.
