Sound Check with The Glitch Mob

A few weeks ago, my cousin Ed’s band, The Glitch Mob, was in town touring in support of their latest album, “Love, Death, Immortality,” at the House of Blues. My cousin and I see each other at least once a year since we both went off to college, and I’ve always enjoyed hanging out with the other guys in the band since they first got together. As objectively as I can put it, though, this edition of their tour is the best production I’ve seen so far, and that’s saying something, given their last go-round:

It was a treat for me to just be a fly on the wall as the crew and the band worked through their set during sound check, since I wasn’t able to stick around for the real thing. Then again, I wouldn’t be walking on stage during the actual show…

Here’s a few shots from that afternoon.

Meet Viola!

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing my newest friend, who just so happens to be 6 weeks old — young Viola, whose parents Stephan and Nicolle asked me to capture everything she’s about before she gets too big.

But if our little session was any indication, camera shyness will never be a problem for this young lady.
