Taken by an old friend from KVNA, it was the last picture on a roll of BNW film early in 2000, and I just yelled out ‘Jan, take this!’ History, just like that. I was taking pictures with my sister and her best friend and it was about 15 degrees out that day so between pictures we were bundled under comforters my mom had brought. It is the picture that is used in my logo for my photography business, Art Z Angel Ink (pronounced Artsy Angel).

Where else can you go kayaking on a river amidst tall skyscrapers on route to a beautiful lakefront? Chicago. These kayakers were just heading out.

Making the most of the sun and relaxation. North Beach 2006. There is something else to say about this beachgoer’s choice of attire, but I guess each person marches to the tune of their own whimsy. Who am I to judge?

This is my brother Greg and I on his new trike when I was about 8. I love him dearly. We were inseparable at that age.
Me and my daddy. There are no words for how it feels to have him in my life. Love is the closest thing to even come close.
This little girl was spending the day with her daddy and he had just scooped her up after trotting along hand in hand along Madison in her red shorts, and red sneakers - perfectly matching her beautiful red long hair. But then, I have a penchant fondness for redheads.

This is one of my favorite wedding guest shots I’ve ever taken. But for the record, he had a HATE tatt on the other hand. I chose LOVE.
This was taken through my rear view mirror on my first annual ‘sistah’s road trip vaca’ to Yellowstone, August, 2006. We were traveling during the riding of the Sturgis motorcycle rally and there were hogs everywhere. These character’s were behind us at a light. They looked so pissed off. I’m not sure why, my banner on the back of my Hyundai read ‘Yellowstone or Bust!’ I could’ve used the ‘Hikers, Bikers and Cowboys, Oh My!’ one, but didn’t!

These were a group of soldiers that had posed for a photo for me last Christmastime near Central Camera in Chicago. They are the many faces of many soldiers.
This almost looks like a shot straight out of the 1940’s. You’d think the Navy would update the wardrobe a bit.
