I guess I should start with a fun fact. I am an only child. You may ask, why is this relevant, but it is! Due to being an only child, I had to find many creative ways to keep myself entertained...and this my friends, is where I picked up the camera. It didn't matter if it was a video camera or a point and shoot, I was always involved with one. Creating infomercials and talk shows in my room, or plastering my walls with photos of anything and everything, this was how I spent most of my time growing up.Thankfully, it turned into a very wonderful career!
From the ages of 14-28, I appeared in front of the camera as an actress and model. It was an amazing experience, which has made me a better photographer. I take all the knowledge I have from being in front of the camera, paired with the expertise behind the camera, then mix in a whole lotta fun and you have a photography session with Deja's View Photography!
My absolute FAVORITE thing in the world is my fur baby, Parker. He was born in Fallbrook, California in a litter of six. The second I saw him, I knew I had to have him. If you are asking what type of Breed he is, I am about to confuse you. He is called a "Double Doodle", which means he is the product of two mini doodles. His mother was a Mini Golden Doodle and his father a Mini Labradoodle... hence the "Double" Doodle name.
He is out of this world amazing and as you can see from his pictures, he is very photogenic!. Any dog agents out there give me a call, he is ready for his close up!
I guess it all began when I was eight years old. I was preparing for a dance recital and my grandmother was doing my makeup for me. As she was rubbing my cheeks to the bone with red lipstick (didn't you know that lipstick was also a blush?!) I sat back and thought to myself, "There has got to be a better way!"
This is where my passion for makeup began. Spending over 22 years in dance not only gave me growth as a dancer, but also as a makeup artist. Every dance recital, every performance, I became more skilled and more passionate about makeup.
12 years later, I am now an established makeup artist, trying to make other's experiences with makeup a little less stressful than it was for me with my grandmother. That is why I decided to join forces with Deja. When you book a session with us, I want to melt your stress away.
I can not wait to meet you and come along on this journey with you!
