Sometimes IFS photographer Vicki S. Luy has to take on some tough assignments, such as spending a weekend in Honolulu, Hawaii, covering Kristi Yamaguchi’s “Golden Moment” shows. This annual event is a fundraiser for Yamaguchi’s Always Dream Foundation, which encourages and supports early reading initiatives for young children.

Here are some of Vicki’s fabulous on-ice and backstage images from the shows.
