In 2012 Lois completed the project with 103 total portraits in the series. She now lives in Milwaukee with her twelve year old daughter and guinea pig. She is currently a Mary Nohl Fellowship recipient and is working on a series of portraits of people who conceal carry in Wisconsin. Besides photography, Lois loves to bike, cook, eat and dabble in Midwestern things like trap shooting.
