Usually, February is a tad slow but I'm loving how busy I am right now. Did a couple headshots last week, booked a wedding, photographed the Well Hearts Event on Friday and the The Night Before the Oscars for the Port Townsend Film Festival on Saturday night. Sunday I did another headshot and a family session, tomorrow I'm photographing a local business doing their headshots and groups photos. This week I'm photographing a home built by QED Builders and a 50th anniversary party at the Alcohol Plant. I love the variety of work I get to do & all the wonderful clients I get to work with. #dejasphotos.com#dejaviewphotography
February is the perfect time to book a session for an updated head shot for your social media sites. The constant daylight balanced lights that I use in my Port Townsend studio make for flattering headshots, perfect images for your website or profile photo on your social media accounts. Give me a call today at (360) 385-2662 or visit my website to see more examples of my portrait photography. www.dejasphotos.com #dejaviewphotograpy #porttownsendheadshots
I first shared this card several years ago but it has become more special with the passing of each year
This is my favorite Valentine despite being a little beat up and faded. However I do love store bought Hallmark cards too. Any of the Hallmark holiday commercials have me in tears as soon as I hear their theme music. However this special card was made with just a sheet of copy paper, a red marker and lots of love. Inside is a very artistic red heart drawn by my boyfriend. Don, my partner, who was working in Alaska on a tug and unable to get to a store so he made this card for me. I don't know where he got the little image of a couple embracing that he taped on the top. I loved the card when he sent to me over 18 years ago but over time it has became even more special to me since his death 18 years ago on the 17th of this month.
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.
I'm excited to be photographing the Well Hearts Event tomorrow sponsored by Jefferson Healthcare and the Jefferson Healthcare Foundation. This will be my third time, Deja View Photography, will photograph this fun event. I tried to upload a larger file for this video but the size was to large for use here on Blogger. Love the song that goes along with all the smiles I got from past participants over the last couple years. Everyone looked great in red, my favorite color to wear too. This event raises money to help women in our community.
