The Vanessa Theme is a 3rd party Genesis Framework theme created for the Photography niche. Vanessa is a minimalistic theme with a focus on images. Featured images are large and all over the blog. If you love sharing images of nature or daily life and blogging about them, then this is the theme for you.
Even though this theme is minimal, Vanessa can be customized to suit your needs. For some tips, take a look at our Genesis Framework tutorials category.
Getting back to the homepage, a sticky menu bar is included and adding your important pages to it is strongly recommended.
Other than a side column, there is not much else going on with this theme. This isn’t a negative aspect, though, because this theme isn’t bogged down with features that distract from your images.
