Happy Birthday Mom
Today would have been my Mom's birthday. She would have turned 90 today but she died at the end of March. Last time I saw her was at my Dad's funeral last October. I was only home for a couple days for Dad's funeral and my brother and I scrambled to deal with paperwork while there. I didn't have much time to take photos but one night I was able to visit with my niece's children. Her daughter Eva asked you to use my camera to take some photos. Within about three minutes of instructions, she was running around the house taking photos. Photos I will treasure as this was the last time I was with Mom and one of the last photos of her. This was such a lovely image we used it for her obituary. Eight months later I'm still sad I wasn't with her as she passed or at her funeral. I'm thankful for the time I was able to be with her on Facetime as my brother Bob sat with her as she passed. He did a Zoom meeting so I could be there along with my nephew in Alaska and cousin in Fredericksburg. Mom died of natural causes but my heart goes out to all the families who have lost ones due to Covid and especially those that couldn't be with them as they passed.

Following Covid Guidelines in taking Professional Headshot and Family Photos
What a strange time the last couple of months have been. Since my photography and my clients have always been a big part of my everyday life the shut down has been difficult. I have started doing professional headshots again in the studio. I'm taking precautions to be safe throughout the session. I do a forehead temperature check when a client arrives in the studio, keep the doors open, wear a mask, and stay at least 6 feet apart. After taking the photos I head into my office to edit them for review and load them to my website for my client to look over. I join my client back at the studio to interact with them, from afar, as they view their images and pick their favorite ones. Everything takes just a bit longer than coming directly into my studio office. This routine seems to be working while we are still in Phase 2 and being cautious. I have done a couple family sessions working within the state's guidelines for interacting during Phase 2. Now is the perfect time to do High School Seniors and I just booked one yesterday and look forward to sharing those images. Thanks to everyone for their patience as we adjust to this challenging time. I have shared a lot of photo memories on my personal page but realized it had been too long since I made a post on my business page. Deja View Photography

Will You Be My Valentine?
Remembering the anniversary date of a loved ones passing doesn't mean I haven't moved on with my life. What it does mean is that on this date I pause and reflect on what a wonderful the life we had together. Only someone who has gone through the grief of losing a loved one knows how quickly life can change. It took only minutes for his heart to stop and for my world to change forever. This simple card reminds me how lucky I was to have such a great guy in my life and that he wanted me to be his special Valentine. I wish everyone is as lucky as I have been in finding that special someone.

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 or at my website Deja View Photography.
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.

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. You can visit my website at Deja View Photography.
