Edina resident captures her daughter playing soccer on a summer evening.
Leah Steidl is rarely seen without her camera. “I carry my camera with me to all kinds of events to capture moments that strike me. I take so many pictures,” Steidl says.
After a summer game of soccer hosted by the Edina Soccer Association, she observed her daughter Etta and Etta’s friend Eva continuing to play in the evening sun. “I turned around to see them and thought the lighting was just so perfect,” the Edina resident says.
Steidl never watched soccer until her daughter began playing, but she had her camera at nearly every game to create a photo book at the
end of the season.
