Web DESIGN + DEVELOPMENT
Meet Laura Yost, a family, portrait, and newborn photographer based in NYC.
Cami: Why did you start your business?
Laura: I worked at a desk job for so long and it didn't fulfill me creatively. I started my business because I always wanted to be in the arts, to capture moments and memories, not just photographs.
Cami: Before working together, what was your biggest struggle?
Laura: I felt like my old website didn't match the quality of my photographs and it never worked like I wanted it to, especially on mobile. I want my clients to feel confident in their choice to hire me and for the whole process to be easy and comfortable. My old website wasn't creating that feeling.

Cami: How did working together help solve that problem?
Laura: I might have been overly emotional, but I started crying when I saw my new site. It's everything and more!
Also, I got new clients! After launching I had a photoshoot and my new clients said "we felt like we knew you coming in today. Your site answered all of our questions and was so easy to navigate. We knew we wanted you the minute we clicked on your site."
I never thought I would be able to pay my rent doing what I love, but I can. I had 30 shoots this month! 30! How did that happen? My new website is what happened.

Cami: We launched your new site a year ago. How have things changed since then?
Laura: Oh my gosh! Seriously?! It doesn't feel like a year at all. I can't believe you helped me make my dreams come true. I wouldn't be where I am today without this website.
You believed in me and made me realize my worth as a photographer and small business owner. Thank you doesn’t even begin to cover it.
