Good Wordpress theme that resembles Smugmug site

I'm setting up a new Smugmug site, and would like a blog theme that matches it. Any good suggestions? Everything I've seen out there not to my liking.

    My website is WordPress and the only thing I use from SmugMug is the galleries (Portfolio). I have some experience with HTML/CSS so I started with a WP site that I wanted to start with (Ravel). I created a child theme and customized it to my liking. Using a child theme allows you to keep your custom stuff in the event that the parent theme updates. I then picked a SM theme to customize to match my WP site. In this case I used 'Sierra', for no reason other than that was the theme I started with. You can see it live in my signature below.

    I did a quick search in WP and a saw this https://wordpress.org/themes/decode/. It may not be 100%, but with some tweaking to either your SM site and/or your WP site, you can probably get it close.

    Hi - I have used the Divi theme by Elegant Themes to do some Wordpress customization to create seamless integration of design between SmugMug and Wordpress.

    Some example sites I designed - click on Blog to see the Wordpress Divi theme

    Hey Mike, I think I asked you this somewhere but can't find it. You said you use SM for the Galleries. Does your Wordpress site handle the shopping cart/ecommerce side of things? How did you tie a photo lab into your site or is that also done with SM?

    Thanks.

    When I said the Galleries, it included the shopping cart/eCommerce too.
