Hillcrest Dance Company

I started dancing when I was 3. When I was younger, I hated having to miss out playing with my friends to go to dance. I used to cry and kick and tell my mom I didn’t want to go. She always told me one day you’ll love it. And she was right. I have such a passion for dance it’s crazy. I love it so much! I used to want to go to New York and be a big time dancer.

When I was in high school, I was on the Hillcrest High School Dance Co. It was such an honor to be in the dance company. Each year we would go out with a photographer and do a photo shoot. One year we went downtown Salt Lake and did shots around the city. Another year we went out to the salt flats and sand dunes. Because of those shoot, I decided I wanted to be a photographer. I LOVED those shoots so much. It was one of the highlights of being on the company. So, I went to college and became a photography major. I started out shooting dancers a lot. I have had the honor of shooting my old dance company from High School for a few years now. I love being part of the dance company that gave me the passion to start being a photographer. And now my passion for photography is the same as my passion for dance. I love them both so much.

This shoot is from the 2013-2014 Hillcrest High School Dance Co. We went out to Salt Air to do the shoot. I love how it turned out. And I love that I am able to do what I love. I feel so blessed.

If you are a dancer and want to do a shoot sometime, please email me at heatherhowardphoto@gmail.com I would love love love to do more dancing shoots.

Seth & Estelle

These guys couldn’t be more rad! They fell in love instantly and got engaged shortly after they met. They have really rad style and even have an Etsy shop! Estelle is from Switzerland. They headed out that way recently to check out her homeland for a few months. We did this little shoot just before they left. My husband, Evan, met Seth a few years ago while they were living out of their vans in Jackson Hole, WY. We sure will miss you guys while you’re gone!
