Kamloops photographer Peggy Knaak had her work recently published in the renowned The Front Steps Project book, where photographers from all over the world contributed portraits of families sheltered in place, posing on the front steps of their homes.

Knaak, who operates her photography website under Sunbeams and Freckles Photography, succeeded in raising over $7,000 for the Kamloops Food Bank throughout her efforts.

She had three photos from her contributions to the project featured in the book.

"When I finally held the hard copy of this book in my hands and began to flip through the pages, I started to cry," Knaak says on her Facebook page. "This photo project gave me life."

She announced in the same post she will be moving ahead on a book of her own. The book is going to highlight her family and maternity portrait work where she has an eye for shots that are unplanned and spontaneous.

With the help of another local photographer, Samantha Knox, she's hoping to see it published by the summer of 2021.
