Congratulations! Your maternity and baby photography website is born. Send us the announcement (with the link) in the comments – we can’t wait to see your beautiful creations.
Victoria went for a long scrolling page, which means a single page that visitors have to scroll to make the content appear. With the growth of mobile use, it has become a top web design trend over the last years – and it’s a great way to tell your story in a quick and efficient way.
For sure, Tali is the kind of professional to pay attention to every single detail. Example? The handwritten style fonts that she uses for her personalized photography logo and the buttons of her menu. It gives her design an intimate touch that promotes trust and confidence – crucial for any maternity and newborn photographer.
Today, no business can succeed online without the help of social media. Most of your initial clients will be your 2.0 “friends” – or the “friends” of your “friends”. Beatriz anchored her Facebook and Instagram icons on the left side of the site, to make sure that following her is always just one simple click away.
Like Melodie, you probably have several tricks up your photographer’s sleeve. If you happen to shoot future mums, and babies, and children – and other types of portraits -, you’ll want your visitors to easily find the service that fits them. The best procedure? Creating one distinct gallery, for each type of photo shoot that you offer.
Pale blue, flashy pink and immaculate white: to dress her photo portfolio up, Gemma used the colors traditionally associated with newborns. Nice move, since this mix allows her photos to naturally pop up – while bringing a smile to her viewers’ faces.
Before landing on the homepage of this stunning newborn photography website, visitors are welcomed by a discreet lightbox.

It naturally creates movement, which is one of the 7 principles of design that artists have been using for centuries – something that you should apply to your photo portfolio now!
Leslie knows that to gain the trust of her clients, she needs to expose a bit of herself. This is why she wrote an inspiring example of a photographer “About Me” page, with a clear description and some headshots. Cherry on the (birth) cake? The badge of “Best Newborn Photographer in Santa Rosa 2017” displayed on top of her homepage shows her excellent credibility.
Why should a menu be a boring piece of design? Like Emeline, you can create a gallery of small photos and colourful boxes of text, each one of them leading to a different section of your site. When aesthetics meets good UX (user experience): the perfect match.
Don’t feel like uploading every new photoshoot to your online portfolio? Like Olga, simply install the free Instagram Feed app on your newborn and maternity website.
