“The pure joy on their faces,” says Tracie Bea Daum when asked what she appreciated about her photo of her children, Ava, 12; Elias, 9; and Penelope, 8 (at the time of the photo). “With such a tough year and missing out on so much, it filled my heart to see them just having fun.”
The Minnetrista resident’s What COVID? photo placed second in the People & Families category of our annual Lens on Lake Minnetonka photo contest. It was taken on Lake Minnetonka’s Halstead’s Bay with a Canon (70-200L and 6D).
The family spends most of its summer on the lake, “… just floating on the big mat or zipping around on the tube,” she says. But Daum can also be found taking professional photos at her hobby farm studio in Minnetrista.
