A key aspect of setting up Emma Miller’s website was in creating a good way to demonstrate her different books. Also, the feel of the website needed to reflect the values of the characters in her books: wholesome, family-centered, faith-based, and hard-working. To get the opening shot of the website, I worked with Russell Shakespeare, a photographer whose kitchen table had a beautiful unfinished woodgrain. This is the kind of kitchen table at which Emma’s characters would meet for meals. A surprise bonus for Emma Miller’s site was the addition of an audio recording of the first chapter of one of her books. When the creativity flows, it’s time to seize the day! The play button below on this page actually works. Give it a listen.
