2017 Spring Photojournalism

I can't believe it is already July. Here are a few highlights from stories I've covered around Northern Utah for the last three months. Enjoy.

Hayden Call, 7, collects eggs while working alongside his siblings on their family farm in West Haven on Friday, April 21, 2017. Over the last decade, the Call family has moved from gardening as a hobby to running a small three acre farm behind their home outside of Ogden. This year will be their fourth year selling produce at the Ogden Farmers Market.

The start of 2017

I've had a full start to photographing 2017. Now that we've hit April, I pulled together a few highlights from the first quarter of the year. Enjoy.
