/// Go Live in 5: Pearly Kate Photography

Another week, another gorgy website completed in just 5 days. This one for the sweetest photographer, Kate Jones, owner of Pearly Kate Photography.

Kate had this fear of redesigning her website, which seems to be an unfortunate trend with creative entrepreneurs. She just didn’t have the time or the energy to dive into a long-haul web project. Once I told her about the Go Live in 5 process and explained that we could get her a gorgy new website in 5 days, she was on board.

We started the process by talking through a few key details:

  • her branding guidelines
  • her website’s audience
  • her key call-to-actions
  • what she wanted to walk away with at the end of the week

Once I was armed with this info and her web content, including her beautiful wedding photography, I was ready to dive in. We started the process on a Monday and finished with final tweaks on Friday. Since Kate switched from WordPress to SquareSpace, we jumped on the phone for a quick 30 minute tutorial, and then she was LIVE.

I love this website for a few reasons:

  1. The design is so lovely and fits her brand so well.
  2. It’s totally going to add value to her business and increase her sales since she now totally looks like the badass photographer that she is.
  3. It wasn’t a headache for her and after a week of collaboration, her shiny new website is already promoting how fabulous she is.

    You make the process sound s quick and easy! I know I’m going to tackle this someday soon for my blog, but like Kate I’ve been putting it off because it seems overwhelming at times (plus waiting for the right timing in general). I love seeing these beautiful site designs though, it’s helping me learn what I want for when it’s my site’s turn. Thanks!

      I totally understand that, Lydia! I think you are right to think through what you want and take stock in other’s designs before diving in. It will definitely help to have a clear vision! Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any general questions about web design or the process – I’d be happy to chat with you!!
