There should be no place like your digital home. Your brand and website needs to set you apart, feel like you, and quickly connect you on a soul-level with your clients before they even reach out.
The better your online home becomes, the more you get to enjoy your real home with your real people. Get a website that works so you can work less.
Custom doesn't have to mean complicated...
You just need the right designer to marry your dreams (style and vibe) with reality (pixels and platform). Because I’ve worked with so many photographers for years now, I know exactly what needs to be in this package...I’m not here to try to upsell you on things you don’t need.
You might even be surprised by what you get out of working together because my packages are more than just design. You’ll get a listening ear, a sounding board, a new pair of fresh eyes, a hands-on creative partner that'll likely end up a long distance friend and a big fan of your biz forever!
Here's to all my fellow perfectionists...
Done is better than perfect.
Done really well is better than done perfectly.
Things are changing faster and faster...it's better to put yourself out there now and pivot as needed.

Timing and availability
I book a few projects every month, 1-2 months in advance. So please reach out when you feel like you could jump into this process a month or two after we chat and you see a proposal. I can sometimes accommodate rush projects with a fee.
“Ahh! I’m so exciteddd but overwhelmed on where to start and what I would need for this...”
Don't worry!! Here's a list of the things you’ll need to gather before we work tgogether. They’re 100% due two days before we start our project so I can get to you know better. Let me help your prep for these things now, it doesn’t need to feel overwhelming last second or if you’re not sure where to start. =)
QUESTIONNAIRE + PINTEREST BOARD
You'll actually start the questionnaire as soon as you inquire – it tells me more about you, your business, your goals, your taste in design, etc. It also includes a spot for you to paste a link to your Pinterest board, which you should fill up with anything and everything that feels like the right vibe/aesthetic for what you're looking to do with your own branding/website. Usually 20-50 pins helps me see a pattern and gauge your taste before I even start designing. If you don't know where to start, check out my own Pinterest boards that are set up by mood/vibe. You can always repin some of those ideas to start.
I would definitely encourage you to work with an actual copywriter if you can afford the investment before design – they are word magicians! Every site I've built where the client had just gotten their copy done professionally, the design felt easier and the user experience felt just that much more personal to not only the client themselves but to the client's audience, who is trying to decide if they should book them or not. Ideally you'll get copy done a few months before you do design or right before our project starts together. Copy is due by the start date. It's also ok if you don't work with a copywriter – in that case, I'll have you fill in my copywriting guide with all the words you want on each page. Once the new site launches, you could always go back and work with a copywriter who can then work around the design, and elevate your language/messaging even more. My go-to copywriter is Rachel and her team at greenchairstories.com, they are the besttttt.
PHOTOS OF YOUR WORK + BRAND PHOTOGRAPHY
You'll need pull 50-150 photos of your recent work (or past time favorites that come to mind and still represent your style well) that I can choose from. I would also HIGHLY recommend you take new photos of yourself so I can have those for the about page and wherever we want them in the design. Fresh photos make a huge difference!! When trying to decide what those look like, just keep in mind your style/taste. Or we can chat before you sign on if you'd like to brainstorm ideas and the art direction for them. =)
TECHNICAL LOGIN INFO
Once you sign the proposal and do the deposit, I'll send you a quick questionnaire to gather your personal login information which I'll keep secure on my end. You'll need to have your domain host login, website platform login (if not Showit), and then eventually a Showit login for me.
FAQs, aka time to read your mind, jk, but here’s some answers to the questions in your head
