Readers have the chance to pose for our People pages, or at least an online gallery, at two events this weekend. If you see a beautiful, young female photographer snapping away and taking down names at either of these family events, it's probably one of ours.

1. Draper Christmas Festival, Dec. 17-18 VF Factory Mall, 12101 S. State Street, Draper Click here for more info

We're sending Francie Aufdemorte to shoot the Festival tonight, which also runs through tomorrow. The event is free, and it's a great chance for the kids to sit on Santa's lap. Along with Christmas booths, the Draper Commmunity Foundation arranged an excellent performance lineup for tonight as well. Click here to see Francie's other work.

2. Winter Solstice Festival, Dec. 18 Red Butte Garden, 300 Wakara Way, SLC Click here for more info

Photographer Cortney Finlayson will celebrate the Winter Solstice at Red Butte with her family as she snaps photos. Bring your family, too. They will have fire barrels, hot drinks and workshops to create winter candles. Click here to see Cortney's other work.
