This is the latest website I built for my photography business Natalia Drause Photography LLC. The website was created in WordPress using the Etudes Theme by GT3themes. You can also view a sample of my photography work here. The business was closed in 2020, so the website is now password-protected. Use password

Project purpose and goal
The website was built to display my photography portfolio in an attractive way for potential clients and to provide the ability to book photography sessions. The site structure follows best SEO practices in order to rank high in Google search.
The website consists of the Homepage, Portfolio pages for each photography type, Photo Galleries, Blog, About and Contact pages. It utilizes a pre-made theme for WordPress – Etudes by GT3themes.
The theme has a built-in gallery and its own block builder. Among some of the blocks that I used on the website are price tables, accordions, lightboxes, etc.
The header of the Homepage and Portfolio pages contains the Slider Revolution that covers the full viewport.
I used Yoast plugin for SEO optimization. I applied best SEO practices and was able to improve my search engine rankings and increase my website’s visibility. The site reached top positions in Google search for target keywords such as “South Bend Indiana photographer”, “family photographer in South Bend”, etc. This brought a lot of organic traffic to my website and I was able to gain more clients.
