It’s been fun for us to look through our fellow Twilighty friends’ websites and see our photos. Here are the latest posts featuring members of Fire and Ice.

One of our other very favorite music groups is the Twilighters, featuring Erin Pyne and Fred Mergenthaler. We met them at Twi Tour in New Jersey and then shared lunch and a cab to the airport. What an awesome duo. They opened their Facebook page this week and Mike is featured in a photo I took and sent them. Become a fan and pass it on!

Britten is an administrator at Twilight MOMS, an artist for the Black Pumpkin and one of our very first fans. Not to mention she is just fabulous and fun! Check out her blog and shops online!

Introducing Heather Gardner Photography

I was born in Oakland, California and grew up all over the United States because my father was in the army. During Jr. High and High School I was on the journalism staff and entered Brigham Young University as a broadcast journalism major. I was a radio announcer for KBYU FM radio and an itnern at the college television station. Through college I worked at various positions including assistant manger and senior processor at a photo store, a jazz and ballet teacher, a bookstore clerk and professional African dancer. Before finishing school, I served a full-time eighteen month mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Santiago Chile and am fluent in Spanish. I graduated with a BA in Psychology from BYU. Following college I worked as a Social Service Worker and Substance Abuse Counselor Aide.

I married Todd Gardner in 2002 and left the full-time work force in 2004 after the birth of our second child. Later I returned to my life long hobby of photography. My family and I currently reside in Utah and I am the owner of Heather Gardner Photography. Most of my pictures are taken out the window of my van as I cart four children ages six and under around town. I also specialize in wedding, family, portrait and newborn photography. My husband bought me a Nikon D40 to shoot my first event and it has not been put away ever since!

A group of women in my neighborhood invited me to Twilight so I went innocently, having never read the books. The theme and story intrigued me. And the baseball scene was to die for! I started a whirlwind reading of all four books in one week. No laundry, cooking or cleaning got done during that blur of time…let me tell you! Listening to the soundtrack and audio books rekindled my creative side. I started to work on a set of Twilight Inspired photographs. Since then, I have opened several online galleries and an Etsy store to sell prints.
My journey with Fire and Ice started last month at Twi Con in Dallas. We all met at the Volturi Masque Ball and its been full speed ahead ever since. We are excited to take photos and sell our prints at various Twilight conventions and gatherings in the near future.

I am a Twilight MOM, a stay at home mom and an avid reader. Stephenie Meyer stirred deep within me the desire to get back into reading. When my nose is not in a book, I also enjoy thrift shopping, blogging and the outdoors. My favorite thing to do is take the hubby’s car for a spin and drive like a Cullen. My next dream is to visit Forks for myself and return to school for a Masters degree.
