I'M Lacy Palmer!

welcome, friend

I am a Utah family and senior portrait photographer. I am passionate about capturing genuine, bright and joyful images that perfectly reflect you and never go out of style. If you value a fun, quality experience and timeless photos, you're in the right place.

Welcome to my little corner of the world, so glad you are here!

kind words from the lp photography family

"We have had Lacy take our family pictures three times! I love her so much. She is so great getting naughty kids to cooperate and gets amazing photos of them! She has a great eye and I love her editing style. I recommend her to everyone I know."


"We got Makenzie's senior pictures taken and I am so in love with them.Thank you so much Lacy for helping us to have a "normal" senior year experience amid all that has been taken away from her. It was amazing!"


“Lacy is absolutely amazing! The entire shoot was easy and fun and extremely enjoyable. I absolutely love her.”


“Lacy is a blessing & a light & she is as talented as they come. I love the way that she connected with my daughter, instantly, & captured her so beautifully. I was a little disappointed that the weather wasn’t cooperating with us but Lacy made the whole thing so easy & the end results were so worth it. I am so glad we ended up where we did & I wouldn’t change a thing. Lacy is magic & we loved working with her!”


"We love Lacy!! She goes above and beyond to get us the pictures quickly. She is so fun to work with! I am not the biggest fan of getting pictures, but my wife is. Lacy is the kind of photographer that makes you want to take pictures and have so much fun with them."


"Lacy is absolutely fantastic! Ashley does not like to be photographed usually. She doesn't feel like she's photogenic or smiles on demand. Lacy really got to know Ashley, got down on her level and made her feel comfortable. Ashley felt beautiful and valued with Lacy doing her photos. I cannot say enough of how happy I am with her session and photographs! Thank you Lacy for sharing your amazing talent!"


"Loved working with Lacy! So personable and I was so happy with my pictures!"


“We just had my son’s pictures taken with Lacy for his upcoming 8th birthday and baptism into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Lacy made sure that all the colors in our pictures flowed very nicely. She made sure my son was comfortable AND had fun with this experience. I loved the questionnaire she had me fill out online prior to the session to let her know what we were looking for and how she could make that happen for us.
The pictures turned out so great. She was very prompt with communication and with the pictures themselves.
I’m so glad to have these pictures for me and my family to look at and for my son to remember about turning 8 and getting baptized.”


"Lacy has a way of capturing the moment few photographers can - that is partly because she is also a true artist. She has a great demeanor and is dedicated to her work. She is reliable and will throw herself head deep into your session, edits and prints. Highly recommended!"


“Love love love her! Made the best of some crummy weather and the photos still came out amazing. She’s super bubbly and makes it a really fun time! ”


"My family and I LOVE working with Lacy. She is the full package: professional, while simultaneously down to earth, easy to get comfortable with, produces gorgeous photos that are worth every penny, never skimps on what photos you get back, is fun, creative, and genuine.

That said, my 2 year old can get a little grouchy in front of the camera, but she is always able to somehow -- miraculously -- make her smile. You won't regret booking her for your... whatever. Wedding, engagement, senior photos, newborn photos, birth stories, gender reveals, editorial, fashion, just-because, ANYTHING. She's astoundingly a master of all trades, and we recommend her to everyone!"


"Getting pictures taken isn't usually something we look forward to, but pictures with Lacy was fun! She did such a great job putting my son at ease! We are so happy with the pictures she took! We can't find a favorite! WE LOVE THEM ALL! Thank you Lacy for your time and talent! These are pictures we will forever cherish!"


"Lacy is so amazing! She did my engagement pictures and made me and my fiance feel so special and made us laugh so much. She is so bright and fun to be around. Definitely will have her do more of my pictures in the future."


"I love LOVE Lacy and her skills and professionalism! I’ve hired her a couple of times to shoot a few things for my family and she never disappoints! She listens to your needs and capture your best moments without you feeling like you’re posing or being fake. Furthermore, she is a genuine and kind person who goes above and beyond for her customers to make sure they’re happy with the end products! I love Lacy and would recommend her to everyone!"


"Any time we need amazing photos, we go to Lacy Palmer! She’s taken our family photos, my maternity photos, our newborn photos, and headshots for my husband and they’ve all turned out awesome!

Getting pictures taken can be so awkward but Lacy is incredible at putting people at ease. When she took my maternity pictures, she coached me through the best ways to pose and by the end I felt totally confident! Her sessions are so fun. She took newborn photos for our son too and I cried so much when I saw how beautifully they turned out! The lighting and colors in her pictures are stunning. We absolutely trust her for our photography needs."


“Lacy is the best! She made us feel so comfortable taking photos (we’re both a little awkward when it comes to photos), she delivers the photos quickly, and she wasn’t afraid to step outside the box to get the perfect shot!”


"Lacy is so easy to work with. I have had so many negative experiences with photographers but Lacy creates art that you desire to have hanging up in your home. She is the kind of photographer that creates lasting memories not only in the photos but in the experience. She is our go-to every time."


"I absolutely love Lacy and her photography is simply an extension of who she is as a person. She is so easy to work with and she is amazingly patient with large families and children. She lets the photos reflect you and your personality, rather than doing whatever she thinks is best. She met my family at a local baseball field and took our pictures there and they are my favorite pictures of all time because they are “us”. She makes suggestions on location options as well as directions on how to stand so you don’t look awkward or out of place. I also love that she always sends so so so many edited photos for you to choose from, not just 10 and hope for the best. I absolutely would recommend Lacy, and think that pictures of family that won’t be around forever is the best investment you could ever make."


"Lacy is absolutely amazing at what she does! We had her do a Fresh 48 photography session at the hospital for our newborn and she captured every photo perfectly. When I viewed the photos, I was literally in tears of joy. It felt so natural and enjoyable getting our photos done, which is a must ( I hate when it feels staged and it definitely never felt that way). Her photography really brings out the natural beauty in everyone. Very pleased with our experience of having her as our photographer and we will be hiring her again."


“We would definitely recommend her. Lacy Palmer is great!! She has a natural relaxed style which put us all at ease. Lacy captures not just photos but the feelings of the moment.”


“I had just finished a round of chemotherapy, and I was not in the mood to have my picture taken at all. Lacy was patient, kind, and made me feel comfortable enough in my naked-faced self to allow her to take my headshots. Somehow she was able to get amazing photos out of what I was able to give her. She’s is amazing, and I will definitely return to her for any of my photography needs."


"I’ve worked with Lacy several times already and plan to do many more. Each time we get together for a photoshoot, I leave feeling like I am on top of the world! She is so creative and so friendly that I never feel awkward and feel like an absolute movie star. She is so quick to get pictures back and the variety of options and quality of images cannot be beat. She has such a talent for posing and composition, I literally don't have one negative thing to say about her. Would absolutely recommend her, 100%. I can’t wait to book another session with her again."


"Lacy did a great job with mine and Ashley's photos. Definitely gave us lots of options and different ways to do the photos, super supportive along with giving multiple places to do the photo shoot at, will definitely use her again"


"Lacy is so fun and efficient! Her photos are absolutely stunning."

You can probably find me wearing an oversized sweatshirt, yoga pants and a baseball hat 90% of the time. I'm rarely not listening to music. As a nerd at heart, I love to cuddle up and indulge in watching some kind of sci-fi movie or binge watch a Netflix series while eating my favorite food group: chips and salsa (it totally is a food group!)
