Resharing Professional Head Shot Images Done for Windermere Port Townsend

It was last year at about this time that I had the privilege of photographing 28 local agents from Windermere Real Estate here in Port Townsend. The beginning of year is a perfect time to considering contacting me to update you business head shot. My Port Townsend studio is conveniently located just down from Jefferson Healthcare. Give me a call today to set up an appointment. You can reach me, Deja at (360) 385-2662. 

I was thrilled when contacted by Michelle, from Windermere Real Estate, and asked to photograph the agents in her office. The Leader ran this full page ad in the Wednesday paper last week. It featured all the agents photos and a detailed list of all the ways the local office and agents gave back to the community in 2018. I really enjoyed the opportunity to work with and photograph everyone and learn about each of their unique backgrounds and expertise. While I'm incredibly proud of all the images I can't take credit for the photo taken of Chuck. Thank you Michelle. #porttownsendprofessionalheadshots

Beautiful Like Wallpaper. What a lovely compliment.

I have been on a major cleaning jag recently. In the process I have been going through old cards and notes I have saved over the years. This one is from a student when I taught at New Suncook School in Lowell, Maine. I was so blessed to have had so many wonderful children in my classes over the years. This made me smile.

Humane Society of Jefferson County adopts 340 animals in 2019.

The shelter has just tallied up the number of adoptions for 2019 and it looks like 340 cats and dogs were adopted. This is pretty amazing for our small town shelter here in Port Townsend. The male barn cat looks unhappy. He really needs to find a home where he can keep to himself and chase mice all day. Jessie and Scraps have been a the shelter for awhile and really deserve to get out of the shelter to their forever homes. You can visit the Humane Society of Jefferson County Tuesday-Sunday from 12-5 or reach them at (360) 385-3292.

Sea Marine in Port Townsend

I have had the pleasure of working with the owners and staff of Sea Marine three times recently. Once to update their photos for their website and their booth at the Seattle Boat Show. Then last year I did their Christmas card and again this year. I had no idea the variety of services Sea Marine offers as a full service boat yard. Chris and Sandy Bakken own the business and have 13 full time employees. Chris overseas the boat yard and Sandy is the boat broker. Everyone was great to work with to get candids of employees at work and the group photos especially this year with their son Andrew's dog patiently wearing alters for the Christmas photo. There is a really nice write up about the business in this weeks Leader inside the Business Insider and includes a couple more of my images.

A simpler time when all I really wanted for Christmas was a bike light. Wait after looking closer it looks like I wanted my two front teeth too. Wait it almost looks like I'm missing 4 front teeth. Perhaps a bicycle accident thus the light with maybe a horn was the perfect present. I see Candyland in the background. Always interested in food I loved playing Candyland as a kid.

Classic Blue Pantone 2020 Color of the Year

Pantone has picked their 2020 color of the year. With their pick of Classic Blue you will see it influencing fashion and almost everything to do with weddings from bridesmaids dresses to floral arrangements. Their explanation in picking this color is very interesting. Classic Blue is calm, confident, and, well, classic color “suggestive of the sky at dusk.” Explaining the reasoning behind the pick in a press release, Pantone revealed the color’s timelessness, elegance and simplicity were the main determining factors. According to Pantone, Classic Blue symbolizes “protection, stability, peace, and confidence” and “encourages deep thinking, open mindfulness, and communication.” Boy we could use some of that right now in the world, go Classic Blue. Check out their Pantone's website for more details on the influence this choice for 2020.

Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce Enjoy Port Townsend New Publication

The Jefferson County Chamber from here in Port Townsend along with Enjoy Port Townsend asked to use one of my, Deja View Photography images for their upcoming 2020 publication. This image was taken one beautiful fall morning during the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. I'm standing on a dock at Point Hudson looking towards, at this time, the new Northwest Maritime Center. The early morning light was incredible as was the lack of wind since often during the festival it can be fairly windy during the September festival especially in the evening.
