TheDoulaPhotographer.com

A few years ago I built a site for a friend, Changing-Moments.com. Way back then, Suzanne was making custom photo cards. Over the years she has moved into Photography, then discovered her love of helping moms during child birth. She decided to join those two passions together to create The Doula Photographer.

This, of course, meant a new website to replace the long gone website. This new website needed to showcase not only the doula side of her business, but her birth (and occasional family) photography as well.

I started with WordPress and went with a Genesis theme for this round. I do still love the flexibility of Genesis. We kept our color scheme light. We tried to incorporate photos, but not over do it too much. Future plans include more resources for expectant parents, that is an area that will keep expanding.

Need a doula in the Greater Puget Sound area of Washington? I know a great one!
