Deja View Photography Photographs Senior Portrait Session with Ryan

I had a great time photographing Ryan for his senior yearbook portrait.  The first part of his session was photographed at beautiful Fort Worden and Ryan came to the studio for addition photos last Friday.

I still have some available sessions for any Seniors who still need their photos taken to meet the Port Townsend High School's deadline of January 6th. Give me a call at 385-2662 for details on my pricing or you can also scroll down in the Blog here for additional pricing and products.

Time Out For the Holidays

I had a wonderful extended holiday vacation. After shooting a senior session on Christmas Eve day I was able to take Friday, Saturday and Sunday off. I was able to relax, catch up on my reading, talk to family back in Wisconsin and even take the dogs for several walks. Sunday morning I photographed animals at the animal shelter and in the afternoon a friend came by and set up a new stand for my studio background paper. It was really nice to take a break from the computer after all the recent editing and printing of images I had done for my clients for the holidays.

By Monday I was back at the computer and spending the day online with the wonderful program Sarah Petty from Joy of Marketing made available for free to thousands of photographers. The day included some 24 speakers and if you listened/watched the whole event it lasted 14 hours. I was on the site up until the last minute listening to speakers like Rod Evans talk about photographing seniors, Joe Buissink's talk on wedding photography was inspiring, Darty Hines gave some great tips on posing men and women and Jesh de Rox gave a very refreshing talk on how he approaches his photography and tips for marketing to clients. It was an amazing workshop and my head was spinning with ideas when I finally went to bed.

I'm so excited about the upcoming year. I plan to attend the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International Convention again in Las Vegas in March. I attended the workshop for eight days last year and find that I'm still working on putting into practice all the tips I picked up while there.

I wish the best to all my friends and clients during the upcoming year.

Port Townsend Senior Portraits

I had the opportunity last week to meet and photograph three seniors, two young women from Port Townsend and Jacob who attends Quilcene High School.  Jacob's session took place downtown in late afternoon light and both Nadya and Breanna came to my studio for their sessions. I have ordered their free pack of "buzz cards" for them and should have them before Christmas. I'm excited about some of the new products I'm offering including the "buzz cards", video clips, accordian books and sample graduation cards. Give me a call at 385-2662 to set up a portrait session before the school deadline.

Senior Portraits Price List

It's not too late to get that Port Townsend Yearbook photo taken. I still have some studio openings after Christmas. Give me a call to get more details on the products listed above or to set up an appointment. If the weather permits we can still do an outdoor session or an in studio session.
