Thinking of Adopting a Shelter Cat of Dog? Contact the Humane Society of Jefferson County 360 385-3292

Since I took these photos for this weeks shelter poster Oakley was adopted on Tuesday. Lily is a playful young lady of two, while LB is a sweet, senior lab mix.  I love the detail in the borders of handsome Alfie's ears and the puffy cheeks that long haired Nolan has who is about two years old. I got to spend some time with Arrow the other day after I had finished taking photos. He is a sweet, shy boy deserving of new home.

You can visit the shelter Tuesday-Sunday from 12-5 or call the Humane Society of Jefferson County at 360 385-3292.

Port Townsend High School Senior

I had been looking for the perfect frame so I could hang this image of a High School Senior on my office wall. I found it last weekend and just hung it the other day. One of the new products I offer clients is the ability to walk out of my studio with their images already matted so they can add them to frames that fit their family decor. The professional lab I use offers these wonderful double mats with the photo already mounted within and the mat and mounted on a 1/4 inch foam board.  

I want my clients to show off their beautiful images not place them in a box hoping to find time to get them matted and ready to frame.

Melinda-What a lovely post, thank you for your kind words about my working with me. Had fun photographing you and sharing a bit of PT with you. We really laughed a lot, sometimes making it difficult to hold the camera still. Keep having fun exploring your new home. Deja of Deja View Photography

Goat Parade Marks Opening of Port Townsend Farmers Market

I was asked by the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce to take photos this morning at the PT Farmers Market. Oh my gosh the number of people that showed up for the goat parade and ribbon cutting ceremony was incredible. I was there early to stake a spot but found It was a bit overwhelming once the crowds showed up. Everyone had a camera/cell phone and wanted a photo of the adorable goats. I'm thinking the baby goats might be suffering from "paparazzi syndrome" or perhaps spent the rest of the day signing hoof autographs. Only in PT could you have a parade with a couple goats escorted around the market by talented musicians like Otto & Kristin Smith and some of their students. I love living in PT.

Candle Light Concert in Port Townsend April 23rd

Severals weeks ago I was asked to photograph the talented Madelyn Kowalski and Lisa Lanza. They have a concert coming up on April 23 at the Trinity United Methodist Church here in Port Townsend. It was my first time to meet Madelyn and her Mother but I have known Lisa for several years. Lisa played the piano for a wedding I photographed last fall. Should be a great concert with two very talented musicians.

Tips For Picking Your Wedding Colors

One of the questions a couple may be struggling to figure out in their early wedding planning is to pick their wedding colors. I just ran across these two posts in TheKnot: The first article is 8 Steps to Choosing Your Wedding Colors  and the second article was Hot New Wedding Colors We Love  In the last article I loved the Rose+Willow+Creme theme along with Violet+Fuchsia+Avocado colors.

Here is an arrangement from a summer wedding I photographed a couple years ago at the Farm Kitchen in Poulsbo. The flowers arrangements were created by the bride's sister-in-law Deanna Kitchen.
