Liz’s Photography Site is Live

Liz has been asking me for some time now for a website to show off her photography. She’s been quite the shutterbug these last several years, consuming gigabytes upon gigabytes of disk space. I’ve had a lot of fun watching her try new things and watching her confidence build as what was one was a hobby has become much more. She has taken quite an interest in photographing local musicians, made some good contacts, and has begun selling prints. I feel really grateful to her that we have such and awesome time machine to look back on past memories in all of their splendor.

I finally sat down this evening and put together a simple site.  Her site, elhphotos.com pulls in an album from her “professional” Flickr account (as opposed to her personal one), so she’ll be able to manage the slideshow without needing to edit the site at all.

Technically you could call this site a mashup. It’s all client side, using some jquery plugins to access her Flickr feed, and the slimbox2 plugin to power the lightbox effect.
