I'm Vanessa, a small business owner based in Surrey.  I started Digital by Vanessa three years ago after many years as a marketeer, and after seven years running my own lifestyle photography business.  I love that I am now able to combine my two areas of experience to be able to help other female entrepreneurs and small businesses elevate their brand online, through either brand photography which reflects their unique proposition, or through a new website that sets them apart online.


My career in marketing spans many global brands including Bacardi Global Brands, Intercontinental Hotels and Visa International. After I became a mum and moving to the country, I started my own successful photography business, 'Beginnings by Vanessa Keevil Photography'.

I know the challenges of running a small business and having to be a master of all things. I also know how critical it is to present your business so it stands apart from the rest.  Since starting Digital by Vanessa I have loved seeing my client's small businesses flourish in a space that they didn't have the time or experience to master themselves.

I am totally delighted with Vanessa's work on my website. She is creative, knowledgeable, organised and efficient and the results are amazing. Her stunning photography has helped to define my brand style and her product photography has elevated my collections and given them a premium appeal.

Vanessa was amazing from start to finish! Her advice, creativity, knowledge and expertise has produced a website that I am so proud to call my own! The quality is amazing and she was so professional throughout the process and always keeping me up to date.  She has created the most beautiful site!
