"This is what I like about photographs. They're proof that once, even if just for a heartbeat, everything was perfect." Jodi Picoult
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.
January is the perfect time to consider updating your professional headshot. While the weather may be frightful right now, with our cold temps and snow on the ground, my studio is warm and toasty. My Port Townsend portrait studio is located just down from Jefferson Healthcare. I do many of the Jefferson Healthcare employees along with local Port Townsend local real estate agents and even local authors needing headshots for their book jackets. I'll put you at ease and capture a business portrait you will be pleased to use on social media or business cards. Give me, Deja, a call today to set up an appointment. You can reach me at (360) 385-2662.
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. It is an honor to have my photography business recognized as Best Photographer, especially with so many talented photographers in the Port Townsend area. I started my business over fifteen years ago selling cards and prints at the Port Townsend Farmers Market. After several years I left the market to focus on portrait photography and converted my garage into a portrait studio. 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.
