Hi, my name is Shirley DeFord.  You may already know me - I have over 4,300 friends and fans on Facebook, and I have been a professional portrait photographer for over 21 years here in  Western Washington. In 2014 I was awarded The Small Business of the Year Award by the Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce and have been in the Top 3 for Photographers in the South Kitsap area for 10 Years.  

I have photographed  Children, Babies, Families, High School Seniors and Special Events,        

I feel very fortunate that I still get to do what I love for a living.  


As a Mom of 4 kids and grandma to 8 grandkids I know...

 how fast time has flown by!   So as you read over my website, won't you consider just picking up the phone and calling me right now before you lose another minute?   That way we can get started immediately on planning a portrait that you'll treasure. Call 360-731-7727

But you're not here to listen to me brag!

(and honestly, it's not bragging, I am just applying for a job).   

You're here because you have a loved one or a family who is growing up - and time isn't slowing down!  Your family is changing fast and you just wish you could stop it for a moment. Well, that's where I come in....

 Shirley, can you stop time?

As a professional portrait photographer, I have helped hundreds of Washington families preserve the special times in their lives -  births, graduation, family milestones, and more.  These are all happy and meaningful events that mark the passing of time in our lives. I am here to make sure you don't forget the love and emotions and feelings you have for each other right now. 

Don't Make Me Cry! (again)

I get tears thinking about how my sons and my daughters used to bounce on my knee and play ball or tag, and now, well, they're grown up and raising children of their own.  I am sure you feel the same way.(It has kept me up at night sometimes, I admit.)  Let me help you keep these moments and memories alive and fresh. Let's get together and chat about our children and families. And we might both still shed a tear, but to be honest, that's what I and my business are all about. Tears Of Joy.   It's our guarantee.   Call us today at 360-731-7727. 

I can't believe she's already a whole year old!   Such a precious moment!
