Vancouver to Toronto to Hamilton…

In 2004, before the trend, Rae bought a house and moved to Hamilton, starting her own Website Design and Photography business, StylinDESIGN.  Working closely with small business throughout the region, she returned to her photography roots and incorporated her unique eye into each website.

  • Concession Street Business Improvement Area
  • Hamilton International Village Business Improvement Area
  • Barton Village Business Improvement Area
  • Ancaster Heritage Village Business Improvement Area
  • Government of Canada Discovery Centre
  • City of Hamilton Nash Jackson House

As the business grew, she decided to move full time into photography, offering staff, product, portrait and event photography.  lumaRae Photography specializes in in-studio and on-site photography for small business and independent business people.

Rae is in the process of remodelling a location in Picton, Prince Edward County, to house her expanded photography studio.
