Janine from Janine Kaye Photography has celebrated her move to Perth from the east coast of Australia by giving her website a whole new look. She tells, “When we relocated our family from Wollongong to Perth in June 2012, I wanted to give my business a little freshen up..something simple, fun, colourful and more “me”. I enlisted the help of two amazing companies in the US (the Thoughtful type and Infinet Designs) and I could not be more thrilled with the results. My new branding incorporates lots of natural materials, mixed with pops of colour from the confetti. I am excited to be sharing this new look with all my couples this year and beyond! While Janine Kaye Photography is now based in Perth WA, I am still available for travel here, there and everywhere!”
