What Powers Your Business? Discover your secret sauce!

If you’re a photographer, you need a website that shows off your stunning work and attracts the kind of clients you want to work with. 
This is true for all photographers – brand photographers, wedding photographers, family photographers, senior photographers, boudoir photographers… no matter your specialty, you need a website that does the heavy lifting for you when it comes to finding and booking new clients.

Why work with a web designer for photographers?

A great web designer will create a website that’s as impressive as your photography. Designers specialize in telling your visual story – using the right colors, shapes, designs, and layouts to draw your dream clients in and show them why they just have to work with you!

Simply having a website isn’t enough to stand out in today’s crowded marketplace. When there are dozens of other photographers in your area – you absolutely must look professional (no DIY websites here!) and on-brand if you want to build and grow a sustainable photography business. 

And when you work with a web designer for photographers, you can be confident your designer understands the ins and outs of your business. They know what matters to your clients, they know what needs to be included in your website, and they know how to make sure you don’t look like anyone else out there doing what you do.

How do I choose the right web designer?

Always start with a deep dive into a potential designer’s portfolio or work examples. You can see how they design for different photographers’ brands and get a feel for how personalized their work is.

A few warning signs to look out for:

🚩They don’t have a portfolio or can’t show you any existing work

🚩Every design in their portfolio looks the same

🚩 You don’t vibe with any of their designs

Once you find a designer with a portfolio that shows you they have the design skills and aesthetic you’re into, make sure you take the time to talk to them! The design process can be in-depth and personal – so you need to make sure you have a personal connection with your designer. 

They don’t need to be your best friend, but you should feel comfortable talking to them about your business and feel confident they understand your brand and your goals for your website. 

Red flags to notice when connecting with a web designer:

🚩They won’t schedule an in-person call or insist on only communicating through email

🚩You have a hard time talking to them or feel uncomfortable on the call

🚩The designer talks over you or doesn’t ask any questions about you, your story, your business, or your brand

If you’ve found a web designer for photographers who has the skills and experience you want and is easy to talk to and connect with – you’re probably in good hands!

The final stage of your web designer search should include getting clear on the designer’s process, timeline, and budget. 

Be aware of:

🚩Unclear pricing or refusing to give a quote before signing a contract

🚩Vague timelines for project completion

🚩No contract to sign

🚩Unreasonable demands or expectations 

You’ve found your web designer for photographers… now what?

Congratulations! Finding a web designer who can bring your brand and vision to life with a strategic, professional website is a huge win. 

Remember that your web designer, though massively talented at what she does, is not a mind reader. The more specific you can be throughout the process, the better your results will be in the end!

Make sure you ask questions if you’re ever unclear about an expectation or due date. You don’t want to delay the web design process or end up paying for additional revisions because you didn’t understand your responsibilities.

Most web designers will ask you to:

  • Fill out a brand questionnaire
  • Talk through your website goals and vision on a planning call
  • Share images and inspiration from websites or brands you like
  • Provide professional copy and content for the website
  • Provide professional brand photos for the website
  • Give timely feedback and request reasonable revisions at specific stages of the website design project

Working with a web designer for photographers means trusting them to work their magic. It can be hard to let go of control when it comes to your own business, but you’ll get much better results when you can let go and trust your web designer!

Natalia took everything that I wanted to represent about who I am and put that on to the page into a logo and a design that I absolutely adore. I used her not only for my logo and branding design, all of my colors, my fonts. I also had her build all of my Canva templates. And as a marketing mentor, I do a lot of my business on social media. It's a way that I get most of my clients, and I use them literally every day, multiple times a day. They're amazing. So if you're looking for someone to help you with your branding and your design, Power Up is the design studio you are looking for.

Marketing Strategist and Mentor

Natalia created a brand that represented myself, that represented my personality, represented how unique I am. I love my website. I can't say enough things good about. The process was so easy.  I went from a business that I loved to the business of my dreams. It's very emotional to me because Natalia created the brand that I always wanted. I now have retired from some of the things that I didn't want to do in my business, but I had to do because of money, because she brought me the clients that I needed so I could elevate my brand.

Working with Natalia was absolutely amazing. She took my words, feelings, and ideas and transformed it into the perfect website for me and my business. It’s better than I could have ever imagined.Now I don’t have to work as hard to show potential clients what makes me stand out. My website looks professional, put together, and truly unique. It’s not just my work that stands out now, it’s also my website.

I LOVED working with Natalia! Her experience in the design world as well as how easy it was to talk to her made the process seamless. I love the way she laid out our meetings and she knew exactly how to pull what I wanted from my brand from me when I wasn't sure what it should be. My brand is cohesive across all platforms now. So having everything working together has helped a lot!

I finally feel like my business is more professionally represented by having a legit website, it’s something I’ve been wanting to invest on for a long time. To be honest I wasn’t convinced until I saw Natalia’s work and with no hesitation I finally decided and give it a go!

We are getting more bookings from clients that are not holding back from spending the big buck! They are ready to get the Nailed Up experience !

Working with Natalia was fun and easy. She made it clear exactly what I needed to do, and turned around gorgeous results in no time at all. I am EXCITED to show up and obsessed with how professional my social media graphics look. I have been posting more frequently and putting out better content than ever because it's so easy with my branded templates! I am getting more engagement on IG, more clients booked through IG, positive feedback from followers noticing my graphics.
