Puyallup Fair Portraits | Amanda Howse Photography

Puyallup Fair Portraits

The Puyallup Fair is a Washington tradition with a longstanding history. For over 120 years, the fair has been the main event in Washington, so much so that it was renamed the Washington State Fair in 2013! Sadly, the fair is not happening this year due to COVID-19, and it’s is the first time in 80 years that it has been canceled. But that won’t stop us from sharing fun memories and Puyallup fair portraits from last year.

History of the Fair

The first Puyallup Fair was held in 1900. How cool is that? It is such a huge event and an important part of Washington’s history. Since the first fair, things have only gotten bigger and better. There are plenty of fair rides and games, shows for livestock and agriculture, and concerts. We’re even ranked in the top ten largest fairs in the United States!

With the Puyallup Fair being such a quintessential PNW experience, I knew I had to get the AHP Model Team to the fair for a fun themed shoot.

Fair Portraits with Friends

Each AHP Model Team member could bring a friend to this shoot, which made things extra fun. The fair is so lively and colorful, so the girls were all smiles! The Washington State Fair runs for most of September, which means we get all the gorgeous late summer weather into early fall. We spent the whole day at the fair, so the girls dressed in layers and brought jackets for when it started to cool down.

We made sure to hit the fair games before jumping on rides! It is so fun to play fair games and try to win prizes. There are also so many delicious treats to indulge in, like the iconic fair scone.

AHP Model Team Perks

This was just one of many themed shoots I’ve hosted for the AHP Model Team. We do different shoots every year for the team, giving the girls a chance to get to know each other better and form lasting friendships. It’s also a fun way for them to remember their senior year! Your last year of high school will fly by. Having photos to look back on makes it so fun to reminisce.
