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.

Rows of Color in the Skagit Valley http://pamheadridge.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/3/rows-of-color-in-the-skagit-valley Every year, Skagit Flats is home to both the La Conner Daffodil Festival in March and the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in April. I live within a half hour drive of this beautiful area so I travel there often to capture the rainbow of colors from golden daffodils to reds, purples, pinks and yellow tulips with my camera. I was honored to have my photo, "Flowers and Flight" chosen for the 2016 La Connor Daffodil Festival poster.  This year I am working with "Visit Skagit Valley", "Love La Conner",  and "Tulip Town"  to photograph and promote visitors to come and view these picturesque fields.  My photos have been featured not only locally but also in the Los Angeles Times.  Stop by and see the acres of vibrant colors.  You won't be disappointed.  And if you are lucky, you might see the flocks of snow geese that winter here.

Collie Club of America Shining Star Recipient http://pamheadridge.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/3/collies-of-the-americas-shining-star I photographed a very special service dog that is the Collie Club of America's Shining Star. As Corinne so eloquently wrote, "Forte' is so expressive with his eyes! It's like he can see deeply into my soul and knows what I need. He is a grand champion with titles in front and behind his name, but most of all, he is a grand champion in heart, and my partner and friend."   Here is a link to the video.  For more photos, click here.

Christmas Fun http://pamheadridge.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/12/christmas-fun

‚ÄčAs everyone gets ready for the joys of Christmas, I worked on some composites for the holidays from a recent photo shoot of a 4 generation extended family. The weather was windy, rainy and cold.  We did the shoot at a local elementary school covered site.  It was not very scenic but at least we were out of the rain. The family dressed in red and we made the best of it.

Senior Portrait - Andy - Class of 2016 http://pamheadridge.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/11/senior-portraits This week I did several outdoor senior portraits.  This young man was strikingly handsome. His Mom accompanied us on this photo shoot.  She was a very proud Mom and rightfully so. He is a well-rounded person who plays several instruments and participated in sports. His Mom wanted photos with one of his instruments and his car. These pictures will be memories of his high school days.

Fall Session - Mom and Son http://pamheadridge.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/11/welcome I love the beautiful fall season with all the vibrant leaves and trees.  One of the best ways to capture Fall is through the eyes of a one year old.  I spent an hour chasing him around the yard snapping photos.  It was so fun! Thank you Julia and James!!!!
