So many small businesses are so busy running their business that they don't have time to market their business. That's where I can help. I love photography and styling the perfect shot, whether it's an interior, the perfect plate or highlighting your product line. I charge a flat monthly fee, depending on a mutually agreed posting schedule, and handle it all so you can focus on more important things, like beating last years sales.

Blogging: Create, administer and upload blog content, manage blog calendar and act as community manager on behalf of a brand. My main focus is lifestyle brands, such as design, decor, beauty, fashion, travel & food. Experience with Blogger, Wordpress, Squarespace & Typepad.
