    Why hire a writer/photographer to design your website? Because content is what connects you to your audience, not code, and certainly not a template.


    At least 50% of the people who come to me have tried to go it alone, agonizing over Squarespace. Why settle for an ok website when you could have a website that will make your business shine?


    We begin with a full analysis of your existing assets, then tailored recommendations from me, including hosting options. My design services include writing (and I write with SEO in mind, rather than SEO being an afterthought), photography, and even videography—all your digital needs are taken care of by me personally for brand cohesion and project management simplicity. Mobile optimization? Of course!

    The brand website

    7 Mile Island Massage already had a pre-existing website hosted by Wordpress which was technically challenging for the owner to update. Built over ten years ago, it needed a visual makeover, content reorganization, and mobile optimization. Now the most important information is front and center, the website looks sleek, and works great on mobile. In celebration of 7 Mile Island Massage's milestone of 20 years in business, I also created a new logo and refreshed the 7MIM Instagram presence.

    The DIY rescue

    Summer Salt had a DIY website on Wix. With a critical restaurant review on the horizon, the owners decided to invest in professional photography and web design. I kept them on Wix, a favorite of mine because of the excellent analytics capabilities. Our first photoshoot was on Monday. By Wednesday, I had made-over their site, and on Friday, they received their glowing restaurant review, which included a link to the website. In a rush like these owners? No-one has to know when you work with me.

    The hospitality website

    In a sea of sameness, The Hugh Inn stands out with its bold personality: cool and fun, yet elegant at the same time. It needed a website to match. I met the owners and saw the property for the first time on June 1 for their first photoshoot. That was our only meeting. The website went live on June 14, right after it was presented to the owners. No edits. "She captured what we've created at The Hugh brilliantly. We are beyond pleased," said the owners. The following year, we added a restaurant page for the now acclaimed Jardin at the Hugh.

    The Shopify website

    The Red Letter Day website had already been built on the backend by a web developer, but it was desperately needing a brand identity and on-brand photography. I stepped in to style and photograph the product, rewrite the web content, and select fonts and create a new color palette. I then uploaded and tested these on the Shopify site. Although this was a collaborative effort which went smoothly, I do offer solo Shopify services.

    The portfolio website

    Design Nest Studio needed a new website that would showcase a variety of design projects while still maintaining a cohesive feel. The large photo grid on the homepage was carefully curated to invite further exploration in the albums section of the site. All photos on the site so far are by me. The site owners can add their own new photos, or ask me to take and add photos for them. I am here for you, even when the website is done!

    The online shop

    Nikolas Pattantyus needed an e-commerce website that would show off his stunning photography to maximum effect to his ever-growing audience, while enabling easy self-serve check-out. This new site, coupled with a dynamic social media strategy, earned Nikolas Pattantyus Photography unprecedented traffic and purchase inquiries from new clients within the first 48 hours of going live.
