Local photographer captures the beauty of sportsmanship.

It’s fitting in an issue that recognizes the 50th anniversary of the Edina Soccer Association (ESA) that we feature a photo that celebrates the beauty of the countless moments ESA gives to the community.

“I’ve always been drawn to photos that convey emotions and make you feel something,” Leah Steidl says. The Edina photographer has graced these pages many times with her talent of always being able to photograph the ephemeral.

“In this moment, Ava had scored a goal and my daughter, Etta, is giving her a high five in congratulations,” she says of this soccer game from last summer. “One thing I love about this particular photo is that it’s a friend cheering and supporting another friend. Also, girls supporting girls. I love that.”

Steidl is a frequent entrant to the Images of Edina contest and some of her winning photos have been featured on this Last Glance page. Would you like to join her ranks? Go to edinamag.com for contest rules and an entry form. Images of Edina is open through June 21.
