Bluchic WordPress Theme
I am using the Samantha Theme from Bluchic. Not only do they have gorgeous feminine WordPress themes, but they also sell ready-made landing page templates and Canva templates, both of which I also use. Amazing time savers. Check out their shop here.
Siteground Web Hosting
I host this website on Siteground. When I was researching web hosts before creating my website, I found Siteground was highly recommended and their pricing is great too. Setting up was easy and with me being in Australia, having the servers based in Singapore ensures my website has good loading speeds.
I also use Creative Market to sell some of my styled stock photography. Creative Market is a popular online digital design marketplace with over 2.6 million products for sale, over 5 million members and almost 30,000 shops selling a wide variety of design products. I also use Creative Market to purchase fonts and design templates. Every week Creative Market has six different products to download for free. Check out Creative Market here.
Adobe Creative Cloud
All of my photo organisation and editing is done in Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. I have a monthly subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan.
Canva makes designing graphics super easy for me. With so many free and paid templates, designs and photos you cannot go wrong.

Training & Courses
Creative online classes presented by industry experts in the areas of photo & video, art & design, music & audio, craft & maker and money & life. A handful of classes are streamed for free each day plus there is an extensive library of classes that can be purchased. I have been learning from CreativeLive since they began back in 2009.
