Local photographer receives merit award

Colleen Pfeilschiefter, a professional photographer and owner of Colleen Photographic Productions in Federal Way, received merit awards for four of her images at the Professional Photographers of Washington State Convention March 23-26 in Bellingham.

“Jason’s Pride,” “Maternal Grace,” “Twilight Glow” and “Summer Moment” were selected to be exhibited in the gallery during the convention at the Lakeway Hotel.

Winning images were selected from entries submitted by professional photographers from Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. In recognition of the achievement, the Professional Photographers of Washington awards merit certificates, which are applied toward a degree granted by the association.

Pfeilschiefter’s entries will be sent to the Professional Photographers of America international competition, to be held in Atlanta, Ga. in May.

Pfeilschiefter does wedding photography and family, children and high school senior portraits. She can be reached at (253) 838-5204 or
