You can see their love for each other in these photos!

Jacob - Senior Portraits- Class of 2018 http://pamheadridge.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/9/jacob---senior-portraits I was so happy to do Jacob's senior photos.  When asked what was some of his favorite things, he quickly listed his guitar, his church, baseball, sunsets, and ballet. We were able to incorporate many of them into his pictures.

Back To School 2017 http://pamheadridge.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/9/back-to-school-2017 I had a fun time capturing, in pictures, kids of all ages as they got ready to go back to school.  The little preschoolers heading to school for the first time were very eager to sit in the school desk as their faces beamed with huge grins.  Elementary age children were excited to see their friends and were very willing to share that special moment in photos. The older ones, going to middle school and junior high, posed for the camera to please their parents who wanted to document their children growing up. Seeing each age group preparing for another school year was a joy to capture with my camera.

Skagit Tulip Festival Photo Contest 2017 http://pamheadridge.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/5/skagit-tulip-festival-photo-contest-2017 I had the honor to be the winner of "Best in Fields" in the annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival/Columbia Bank photo contest. I received my award at the Burlington Columbia Bank Contest reception. Everyone was so warm and friendly.  A bonus for me was meeting Dan Lewis, retired KOMO newscaster and avid photographer, whose photo was a finalist in the "Close-up" division.  

My photo was taken in April on Best Road during an early morning sunrise.

Spring Equinox http://pamheadridge.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/3/spring-equinox Spring equinox is a favorite time of year for photographers from around the area to shoot Deception Pass Bridge on Whidbey Island.  One of the most sought after pictures is capturing the sun in the middle of the bridge at sunset.  Often the weather does not cooperate but when it does, the photos are breathtaking. Here are some that I have snapped over the years.

Cynkar Wedding http://pamheadridge.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/10/cynkar-wedding Cara and Mike had their wedding at their home in a beautiful, wooded setting with mountains towering over their venue.  As Cara always says, "It is like we live in a park". Between the majestic scenery and the fall colors, the location was the prettiest place that I have seen for a wedding. Here are just a few of their photos. Click here for more photos.

Confidence Mission http://pamheadridge.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/8/confidence-mission High school students need to own who they are and appreciate their individualism.  Often teenagers do not understand that their personality, traits and values are what make them unique and important. Believing in one's self will inspire each person to take action and tap into their strengths.  I sat down with a group of Oak Harbor High School cheerleaders and asked them to write down on a sheet of paper some positive characteristics about themselves and what they liked. Next, the coach read out loud each paper and their teammates guessed who each was. After that, each person's paper was passed around so their fellow cheerleaders could write what they admired about each one. At the end, each cheerleader wrote on a chalkboard , "I am ____________ and I like___________" statements.  They proudly displayed their characteristics and I photographed them. Here are the results. In the end, I think the group found a new sense of confidence in who they are. Be brave, be confident, be YOU!

Finding True Love http://pamheadridge.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/7/finding-true-love Last fall,  I took photos of Kim, her family and her boyfriend, Andrew.  At the time, I could see how much they loved each other.  A few months later, Andrew proposed to Kim and within a half a year later they go married on a sunny, warm July afternoon at a picturesque family farm with a white barn and a colorful flowered landscape.  I was so happy to capture their special day with family and friends. Click here for more photos.

Meghan's Engagement http://pamheadridge.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/4/a-salute-to-a-friend-and-the-military-for-all-their-service Meghan just got engaged to a man in the Navy. They asked me to take engagement photos of them at the Coupeville Wharf where they had their first date. He is from Oklahoma and also wanted photos in his cowboy hat.  A friend of mine was kind enough to let us take pictures at her family barn. Meghan and Dominic were the perfect family to snap lots of fun photos. Here are just a few.  I got plenty of formal photos with him in his uniform at the Coupeville Pier including a replay of the iconic V-J Day of a sailor and a nurse. My favorite photos were at the Engle Farm. See their love through their photos.
