PHOTO SHOWCASE: 2010 OWH Year in Pictures – Alyssa Schukar

Tiffany Westphal kisses her son, Juan “Meme” Delgado, 5, goodbye before he boards a school bus on his way to Field Club Elementary School, where he is a kindergarten student, in Omaha, Neb. on Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2010. Delgado loves going to school but is often too sick. He was born with Chronic Ideopathic Intestinal Pseduo Obstruction, which caused his intestines and stomach to not function.

About Alyssa Schukar

I have been a staff photojournalist at the Omaha World-Herald since September 2008. I'm from Lincoln and am a 2006 graduate of the College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Previously, I worked as an assistant at Malone and Co., a commercial photography studio in Omaha. My favorite pictures are those that give insight on the life of an individual or family because I understand the world better through the experiences of the people I meet. It's always humbling to be allowed such intimate access. My most challenging assignments come in many forms. Funerals, especially those of soldiers, always are emotionally draining, but I try to approach people with respect and dignity. In my time at the paper, I have covered a wide variety of assignments, including the Nebraska and Iowa National Guard's deployments in Afghanistan, Husker football at home and away, portraits of wigs big and small, rodeo queen competitions and intimate views of everyday life and love.

    Hi Allysa,

    I follow your work daily in the World-Herald and think you do an outstanding job with your photography. I loved the photos of moving the Big Horn sheep recently. You have the ‘eye’ that it takes. Keep up the good work. Fred
