Week in Pictures: Lingerie football, preparation for golf and baseball

We meet the players of the Omaha Heart football team as Omaha prepares for a busy summer including the College World Series and the U.S. Senior Open in the World-Herald Week in Pictures: June 3-9, 2013.

Almost two weeks after a surgery to fix a torn ACL in her right leg, Leslie Walls is back at the game with her sons Colton Walls, 2, and Noah Walls, 9, outside of their home in Omaha on Friday, April 26, 2013. "These girls have worked so hard that it’s inspiring just to even watch them. It is heart wrenching not to be on the field, but it’s inspiring to watch from day one what they’ve put in to where they are now," Walls said. ALYSSA SCHUKAR/THE WORLD-HERALD

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.
