INTERVIEW WITH MICHELLE BLUM PHOTOGRAPHY | WEBSITE + BRAND
Earlier in the summer, I finished working with Michelle to create a new website and brand for her photography business, so I thought I would share some post website and design feedback.
I am a small photography business, specializing in family portrait/lifestyle sessions and small to medium events
I think it is not only bright and warm, clear and easy to navigate but it also perfectly reflects me and my work- and that happened because Yvette listened and observed well.
From the first email, Yvette has been very responsive, efficient, proactive, organized and thorough. She is also very even-tempered and a good problem solver. Some people are surprised when I tell them I worked with a designer across the ocean but the way Yvette worked with me proved to be seamless and easy; our geographical differences and even the time difference constraints made almost zero impact throughout the months we worked together.
It was all new to me and I learned a lot- as much as I could absorb and Yvette was able to simplify to for me and help me gain a grasp of it. She also did a great job with my brand.
Fid someone like Yvette who is responsive and personally invested in you and your work-- someone who is sharp and professional and can even keep you on track if needed. That was Yvette for me.
Michelle's Kind Words
From the first e-mail I received, I was impressed by how responsive, organized, focused and invested Yvette/Lemonade Designs was in helping me build my website. Yvette was able to break down the stages of our work together into manageable steps and kept me on track when the process felt overwhelming. She was encouraging and directed me with clarity and care. She is also creative and decisive but always defers to her clients and confronts issues that arise head on; to that end, she is a calm, focused and effective problem solver. Frankly, she got me out of the starting gate and across the finish line with a combination of professionalism, tech-savvy and genuine and caring investment in my project. I think she is terrific at what she does and I am not sure I could have accomplished what I did without her.
I plan to use Yvette in the coming months to solidify my knowledge of the inner workings of my site... I want to use the site to anchor my business and to hopefully attract more clients who are reassured by the quality of my professional website which effectively (brightly and warmly) reflects my work! It is also a personal joy for me to see my photography displayed and reflected in such a professional and beautiful way!
