DejaView_color_no Website2Port Townsend Portrait Photographer

Welcome to my new Blog. I'm saying goodbye to my Google Blog that I've had since 2009. I'll keep a tab on my website menu with a link to visit it. On this new Blog I plan to share some of the portrait work I have done recently of families and professional headshots for many local businesses here in Port Townsend.

National Doctors' Day

March 30, 2022

National Doctors' Day

Today is National Doctors' Day. What a wonderful opportunity to thank the JHC Doctors specifically, Nurses and all health care providers/staff who have worked so hard to provide our community with care during COVID-19. Jefferson Healthcare celebrated Doctors' Day by sharing a thank you to the staff in The Leader today. I have had the pleasure of photographing all but one provider on this page plus other JHC headshots since 2016.

Pups Enjoy Recent Port Townsend Snowfall

January 09, 2022


I'm so blessed to have two beautiful shelter dogs in my life. I adopted Sherman over four years and Hailey a couple of years ago. Sherman is the tri-colored Border Collie mix is around nine. We had several inches of snow here in Port Townsend a week or ago and I was surprised to see how much Sherman loved laying in the snow. Hailey, the German Shepherd mix, is three and more active. She loved running and playing in the snow. 

Last year I stepped down from photographing shelter animals looking to be adopted at our local animal shelter the Humane Society of Jefferson County. I had volunteered there for over 15 years, taking photos every Sunday, creating a poster, and sharing my photos with the shelter for them to post on the website Petfinder. Petfinder is a searchable database that helps animals find homes.

I really enjoy taking pet photos for my clients and wish I took more of them, luckily I have my own models. Too often I'm asked to take photos of a family's cat or dog when an owner finds that their pet has become sick. I would much rather be able to include a family pet anytime when taking family photos for a client. I have the ability to photograph dogs, or cats, in my Port Townsend studio. Taking photos in the studio offers fewer distractions and my constant lights reduce the fear a dog might have with a flash going off. The gray background paper I use really makes for a lovely photo. You can visit my Pet Photography Gallery to see more photos. Don't put off taking a photo of your "fur" family member, anytime is a great time to photograph your family pet.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to fill out a ballot and vote for Deja View Photography in the Peninsula Daily News. The notice of the winners of 2021 Best of Jefferson County came out in the Fall and later I received this nice certificate from the Peninsula Daily News.

I offer a variety of different portrait photography including professional headshots, families, event photography, and High School Seniors. Again, thank you to everyone who voted for me and for those that continue to support my business by using my photography services. It is a joy to be part of our community here in Jefferson County.
