When I decided to open Haberdasherie - my home decor and gift boutique I knew that I needed a website but I had no idea how to go about getting that done. I started asking around and many told me to just do it myself which totally stressed me out.
My friend, Katie Denham, recommended Steph as she had done Katie's website for her (Katie Denham Interiors). I loved Katie's website and knew that Steph was who I wanted to work with. Right from our very first phone conversation I felt like Steph listened and completely understood the nature of the store I was opening. She understood the image that I wanted to portray and came up with ideas that matched my thoughts exactly. I am not very experienced with technology, social media, etc. and Steph made everything very understandable.
She explained everything so that I could understand what she was talking about. She gave me great advise on how to use social media. She gave me helpful hints for taking my own pictures.
From one woman business owner to another it was such a wonderful experience and I appreciate and love everything Steph did for me in helping to establish my brand! She is a remarkably talented and lovely woman. Lots of fun to work with! I get compliments on my beautiful website every day. Thank you Steph!

"Steph is a delight to work with! She just seems to get my visions. The day I met Steph I felt like I had know her forever.
She is a great photographer and has the ability to capture just what you would hope she would. She is great at communicating, works in a timely manor and just comes up with a beautiful end result.
Oh yeah ... and she never complains about my silly questions or lack of ability with the tech side of things."

"I can't say enough nice things about Steph. She genuinely cares about every project. She was incredibly prompt in response time - I felt like her only client and that's a huge goal of mine in my business, so it was awesome to feel valued in that way.
Steph is just cool; fun, sharp, and brought great ideas to the table to help my project reach it's full potential. I honestly couldn't be happier with the end result, and at this point I will just miss working with Steph like we did over the past 4 weeks. Thank you, Wild Within Studio!"

"Steph helped us dig deep until we found a look and feel that truly spoke to our identity and she was unflinchingly dedicated to delivering a product we are proud of. In the end, we arrived at a cohesive, vibrant and honest representation of our business. Steph's positive and approachable demeanor and rapid, clear communication along the way made the process that much easier. Our experience was a true team effort and we're so thankful!"

"I am so grateful to have found Steph for my business launch photo shoot. I'm a new entrepreneur, very shy and my business is horses...so the shoot was outside, ranging from herd shots, to client shots, to head shots to general nature shots. All spanning about 30 acres.
I was nervous and didn't really know how to direct the session. There was no need for worry. Steph came prepared, was fun and casual and we just let it flow. The afternoon with her was a blast and the pictures are amazing. I can't wait to have her back for another shoot in the spring."
Amy Buck | Wisdom Ridge Ranch
"I didn’t realize how much of a practice in purpose creating a website and logo was and how blessed I would be in asking Steph to support me in that process. Steph is so much more than a tech savvy designer and artist in my corner. She is a life coach, with the right questions and grace to hold me to my passion driven commitment. Her pace and planning of our tasks were logical and kind. Her communication clear, both in collaboration and in expressing my work, my message out through the world wide web.
She’s wonderfully intuitive ~ I didn’t realize how or if my technology and marketing stumbling blocks would surface in our work together but they did and she diffused their frequency and combustibility with patience and compassion.
She continued to adjust vision as she created, knowing that there was something missing in the layout of my website she brought in elements that I didn’t know I needed, another dimension that was so right in the message of our offering. Beyond all of this talent her innate community minded idealism is kindred and necessary in the work we women entrepreneurs do. I can’t say enough about the ease and connectivity that she brought to this endeavor."

"Steph is very creative, talented and so much fun to work with. She was recommended by a mutual business colleague and we have been collaborating on my branding, website, letterhead, advertisements, photography, and other various things ever since! I would not hesitate to recommend her, and I have often! Awesome experience!"

I highly recommend Wild Women to check out her page and see if Wild Within is a great match for your branding and website design needs. Steph, I look forward to working with you on other projects in the future. Thank you!"

"I just got a new client via my website today, so …THANK YOU STEPH ;)"
Sacha Badame | Makup & Styling
"I hired Steph for her full branding package: photography, branding, and website design. I was definitely hesitant to commit at first - her package was higher than my initial (uneducated) budget. But I loved her portfolio and her responsiveness during our initial conversations, so I went for it. I'm so happy I did.
She made my team extremely comfortable during our shoot - none of us are models, but she made us look great! And she went above and beyond during the design of my branding and site, revising and redesigning until everything was perfect. Always cheerfully agreeing to tweak this and change that. She offered really great advice when I wasn't sure of certain design choices, but ultimately left all decisions up to me.
Overall, it was a great experience. I absolutely love my rebrand! I'm already getting inquiries coming in from the Get in Touch page! If that's not a sign of a job well done, then I don't know what is!!
Simi Hansen | Chef-Proprietor — Wanderlust Catering
"I had this fear that if I hired someone else to do my website it wouldn't be a great reflection of my business's personality. But Steph was a dream to work with! She took so much time getting to know me and my vision and ended up producing designs so stunning - they far exceeded anything I could have done on my own! I'm deliriously happy with my site and branding and feel such a huge relief now that I can focus on my business. 100% would recommend Steph to everyone!"
Bri Gore | Anthropologist, turned creative business — White Bayou Collective
"She's the best! Incredibly creative, a pleasure to work with, accommodating — her work is beautiful."
Altagracia McCoy | NOURISH TO THRIVE
"Steph has great instinct behind the camera. She was able to capture not only the shots but my energy and the way I work. Which is crucial for a curator, maker, builder. It's an emotional journey creating your brand, website and social media identity. I'm grateful Steph had me under her wing guiding, nudging and also letting me marinate when needed. Her timing is impeccable! I'm excited about the work we accomplished together and looking forward to our paths crossing again."
Kate Bowman | Interior Designer — Kate & Jubilee
"Steph is amazing. She listened to all of my input and created a brand that is not only beautiful, but is a true representation of me. This has been my best experience working with a designer to date and I cannot thank her enough."
Elizabeth Fein | Social Media Manager — Iterate Social
"Steph listens to what the client envisions and then puts her creativity, knowledge and experience to work. The end result is exactly what I dreamed the logos would be-they expressed my brand perfectly. Steph has the gift of "seeing" the ordinary with an artist's eye and transforming an idea into a winning graphic design concept. Professional, expedient and dedicated to quality work."
Gwynn Waldsmith | Proprietor of Squirrel & Bear — and The Velvet Lark
"I am still shimmering from the launch of our new website! From the original branding, photos, web design and execution, Steph is a one-stop creative powerhouse. I'm thrilled to say she consistently exceeds my high expectations."
