Developing a Photography Website

simple-ipad-pro-mockup-23619 (2).png


During the early stages of the 2020 pandemic, I decided to utilize my time at home to enhance my web design skills and expand my portfolio. My friend Shelby, who was looking to improve her photography business website, had initially created a site using the free version of Wix. She was not looking to pay for a new website and I was looking to take on new projects to continue building my expertise in web development as well as bolster my portfolio. I offered to create a new website for her on my own server, using WordPress and the Divi builder, to practice my skills and help her better represent her photography work.
