Everything starts with a Vision
Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time.
Vision with action can change the world.
Joel A. Barker
Hi. I’m Carmen.
I believe that people who successfully do what they LOVE doing make the world a better place! Websites are a great vehicle for that.
Your website is a great vehicle to bring your vision to life.
How I work my magic
The first step is the website worksheet that you fill in so I get a good idea about why you need a new website and exactly what it is you’re trying to achieve. If we are a good fit and I know I can help you achieve your goals we will have a skype or zoom meeting and discuss the worksheet in depth. Then I write out my recommended solutions in a proposal for you. Once the proposal is accepted and signed we start working on your project.
Now instead of trying to tell you what I intend to build and hoping you understand my jargon, at this
When you have sent me all your content (text and images) the fun begins – during the design stage, we get to play with the crayons and colouring pencils to bring your interactive prototype to life to match your brand identity. Here’s the same website fully designed.
Finally, we go underground for a couple of weeks and make sure everything is plugged in and tested before deploying your shiny new website to your hosting server so you can show it off to the whole world.
When everything has been tested and is running smoothly we launch! For a month thereafter we are here to help you with anything that comes up and training you how to update your website yourself.
I love creating websites. I love helping bring a vision to life and nurture it to grow and thrive.
It is not uncommon that I would be up all night working on a new project, just like I used to in the old days when I was still developing and printing my photos in my bathroom. Seeing things come alive before my eyes is exciting and very satisfying!
After many years living and working as a photographer in London, I’m now based in beautiful Tuscany – it was a friend’s wedding that brought me here in 2010 and changed my life. I fell in love with the place, organised my first yoga retreat here – for which I made my first website – then moved here!
For those of you who are intrigued and would like a piece of this Tuscan magic, I offer a unique package: Come to Tuscany, get inspired and get it done while having fun – your website and your personal brand photography – power charge your project, and yourself, combining work with pleasure!
I give my all to my projects and they take a lot of energy and expertise to get right, so I only work with select clients on projects that excite me and that I think have a real chance at success.
A new website is like a baby: it needs to be looked after and nurtured to be able to grow and thrive. I’m in it with you, for the whole journey.
If you’d like to talk to me about working together, tell me a little about your project and if we’re a good fit for each other and I honestly believe I can help we’ll discuss next steps.
I look forward to learning more about your project. Head over to the Website Worksheet to answer a few questions.
