showit template customization: 

website design for photographers

The quicker, more cost-effective route to launching the website of your daydreams.

Template customization means I take a pre-made Showit website template created by another designer and customize it specifically for you. 

This approach works best for photographers who already have a solid brand strategy and are just looking to uplevel their web presence.

the lyd method


here's what the lyd method for template customization includes:

  • Brand identity basics - if you're unsure of what fonts and colors to use on your site, I've got your back!

  • Website copy guidance - strategic questions asked in our initial questionnaire will help me craft messaging that resonates with your dream clients. Yes, I actually help with your website copy!

  • SEO keyword research specific to your specialties and location(s)

  • SEO image naming - I'll resize/rename up to 300 images for you (using that keyword research!) + upload them to your Showit account

  • Page titles + descriptions using SEO keywords

  • SEO text tags on every page using keywords

  • Template customization for up to 6 pages (extra pages can be added for additional fee)

  • Rearranging canvases when necessary based on your business

  • Altering canvas layouts when necessary (I'll move things around and edit the design if I see fit! Sure, it's a template, but I still want to make sure it's doing the best job possible for your biz!)

  • Mobile optimization - gotta make sure everything looks just as sexy on the 'ol phone screen! ;)

LYD is amazing! From the moment I reached out to inquire about their services, I felt valued, and I wasn’t even a client of theirs yet! It was an easy decision to work with them; their work speaks for itself and their personalities are absolutely beautiful. They helped me with a template customization and it turned out absolutely amazing! They were always there for me if I had questions and were always checking in and updating me on the next steps. Once I got everything they needed sent to them, the work was super fast and they had my website up and running within two weeks I believe. Very fast, and extremely gorgeous and SO me. They just got it! You will not regret working with them. LYD for the win!

Britt and Kelsey are amazing! From the moment I reached out to inquire about their services, I felt valued, and I wasn’t even a client of theirs yet!

They delivered exactly what they said they would, and more. 
Their initial form really covered everything, and I spent several hours filling it out the best I could. And what these ladies did with that information was amazing. 
They saw what I said, and they saw what I WANTED to say, they read between the lines and made me sound even more awesome than I had hoped. My vision came to life on my website. I simply could not be happier than I am. Thank you Launch Your Daydream!! 💜💜💜

"I am so happy with the final product and everything they have done to make my dream website happen."

Britt and Kelsey went above and beyond to bring my site to life. They were amazing at communication. Clear with timelines. And I gotta say, really fast.

Launch Your Daydream went above and beyond to bring my site to life. They were amazing at communication. Clear with timelines. And I gotta say, really fast. They were a joy to work with and I feel like our interaction, while professional and efficient, was also fun and relaxed. It made the entire experience so easy. My site is gorgeous. But I already knew it would be. It’s always the question of how much hassle is it going to take to get it to that point? With Launch Your Daydream there was none. I’ll tell everyone I meet to use them.

"I’ll tell everyone I meet to use them."

I tried over + over to make my site feel authentically ME + I never quite got it right.  LYD understood me. They amped me up. They didn't make me feel like I was a complete wack-o.  I can CONFIDENTLY say, there is no way I would have got this vision in my head executed on my own to this level. I AM GRATEFUL for them. I was able to be home more and with my family during times of need. I was able to be there for my clients more. I was able to have ME time. They are prompt with communication. like... for real. They truly aren't like typical website designers. HIRE LYD! You freakin' wont regret it!

what happens when i'm ready to book with launch your daydream?

I've got you! I know changing to a new website platform can be scary. Between the resources at Showit, my resources, their live chat team, and me walking you through Showit as we go, I'll make sure you're plenty familiar with how to update your website after it launches!

i'm nervous about switching to showit. will you help me with it?

Not yet! This is a part of the process that I'll walk you through when your new website is ready to launch on Showit. (And if you're already on Showit, easy peasy!!)

Do I need to cancel with my current website host?

Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re not finding a template you love, just reach out to me! You can provide me with brand words or specifics that you’re looking for and I'd be happy to provide you with templates that best align with your aesthetic. There are so many talented designers out there that have templates that are perfect for no matter what kind of vibe you're going for. I know it can be overwhelming to do the search alone, though!

Yes! The Client Journey Questionnaire usually provides me with material for about 85% of your website copy. Any remaining copy that you want to provide (usually includes pricing/packages details, facts for your About Page, etc.) can be pulled from your current website (or via email/Google Doc if you don't have a site yet!)  If you do prefer to hire a copywriter from start-to-finish for your website, I can provide you with a recommendation!

That's okay! All of the templates we recommend have a look & feel built-in that can act as a logo and brand aesthetic for you. If you're not convinced, let me know and I can show you some examples after you inquire!

Your domain name will stay exactly where it is today. Your website hosting will change to Showit. Don't worry about the actual process though, I'll take care of connecting your new site to your domain for you!

what if i Don't have a logo?

what about my domain and stuff?

I start by conducting research specific to your niche. This will tell us what relevant keywords people are ACTUALLY searching for each month. I'll use this research to rename all of your images for your site, then also include those keywords in your page titles, descriptions, and the SEO text tags within each page of your site. 


I'll be back to you within 1-2 business days, tops. Form not working? Email me directly at!
