Day of Action 2018


       My interactive sign in the crowd- captured by photo journalist
       Lee Matz.

Woman's 2nd Anniversary DOA- Jan. 20, 2018 in Milwaukee - the weekend ALL over the country women, men, kids, LGBTQ, and dogs marched in a peaceful demonstration. 

My interactive sign was inspired by the WW comics and 80s BIG hair.

I think this perfectly sums up why there is another women's March this Saturday. " The new women's movement focuses whole-heartedly on women (and families) of color (WOC). Growing up in Milwaukee, one of the most segregated cities in the country, and one of the poorest as well, I have witnessed the inequality over and over again in my lifetime. The Women's March is addressing many issues besides discrimination, ie: sexual harassment, equal pay, LGBTQ issues, inequality in education. Perhaps you and your families have been fortunate enough not to have experienced the disparities. IF that is the case, all the more reason I invite both of you to join your sisters in the movement, the March, and the continuing action that we are participating in together!" 

Written by my friend Jean Wells, in a response to 2 women who think we as women have reached equality.

Elsa - Lil One in a BIG Yard

Elsa and her parents. This lil one had trouble hearing but sure was a sweetie to photograph. Also, her parents were funny and great storytellers, and full of talent. Darla was an opera singer, Mike was in theater, is a great cook, and a fire fighter.

Happy New/NOW Year!

This is the view that I saw after leaving my last wonderful family photo shoot of the year (NYE). My heart is full. I'm truly grateful for ALL of my clients, family, and friends that trusted me to help create new memories and lasting photos this past year
