Hello! I'm Lacy Palmer and welcome to the LP Photography blog. I'm a Family and Senior Portrait photographer based in Salt Lake City, Utah and I can't wait to share all about my business with you. While you are here, go ahead and pull up a chair, grab your favorite snack and enjoy viewing some of my latest work along while getting to know me a little more and maybe learn a few tips along the way! 


When Emily was little, my husband and I used to call her Agent Em. Emily has the most infectious laugh and personality, naturally, she is a Foster. It’s official, I have now photographed all the Foster girls and I can’t help it but they are just some of my favorites. Emily had achieved a lot […]

When Kenzie’s mom reached out to me about doing senior photos, I was so thrilled! Kenzie was in Young Womens when I was a leader in our ward and I have grown to just adore this beautiful girl. Kenzie is not only a naturally gorgeous girl but she is also super funny, athletic and talented […]

I truly can’t believe that it was time to take Tommy’s senior photos. To understand my relationship with Tommy, I have to tell a little backstory. Tommy’s mom, Rae, was one of my teachers in high school. She teaches Sign Language and back when I was in high school, it wasn’t a popular subject so […]

Utah County Winter Engagement Photography | Zane + Kallee


We live in a day an age where photography is more accessible and probably more popular than ever before. I mean, hi Instagram. A platform that has single-handedly upped the photography game of the average person. It’s so great! More people are educated on what makes a picture interesting or good to look at. Also […]

Why should you hire a professional?


But, Peter, how do we get to Neverland? Fly of course! Just think of a wonderful thought! All you need is faith, trust and pixie dust! Winter is a hard time for photographers. You have¬†what feels like is a never ending busy schedule in the fall and then it just dies off and you sit […]

Utah Fresh 48 Photography | Hickenlooper Family


Meet Erin. One of the cutest and sweetest people I know. If you’re familiar with Hayley and her session at Saltair, this is Hayley’s sister. I love the Fosters, pretty much my favorite people on the planet and I am probably a little too eager when I am given the chance to photograph them, it’s […]

I know what it’s like to be a new photographer and feeling so overwhelmed with so much to know and so much information out there! Heck sometimes I still feel that way and I have been doing this for a long time! Locations can be a really sore spot for photographers, once you find a […]

I cannot express how much I loved this session. Axton was getting ready to get baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. In the Church you must be at least 8 years old in order to get baptized and once you have made that decision, you get interviewed and go through a […]
