Selecting your website design is very personal. As you start your search, you may be looking for specific elements that express your style of photography and you want to “see yourself” in the design you select. We’ve found that people often search for phrases like “best website template for newborn photography” or “cool senior websites” to find websites they may like. And in the results, you expect to see samples featuring your type of business. We get it!
The thing to remember is, a website template is a starting point for your design that determines where elements like your logo and navigation menu are placed, so don’t limit your choices based on the contents of sample designs. That content is meant to inspire you, but if you find a sample you love that features a different style of photography, by all means make it your own! Each template's colors, fonts, and blocks can be rearranged and modified to fit your needs. The key when selecting a PhotoBiz template is to focus on two elements: logo placement and navigation menu style.
The logo and navigation menu are fixed elements in the design. Nearly, everything else can be modified without knowing a single line of code! PhotoBiz’s Website Builder is designed as a drag-and-drop style builder, with a few boundaries. Those boundaries are to make sure your website looks great no matter what device your site is seen on.
Our website templates are created by our in-house design team. We look at trends and styles that best represent all styles of photography and we create samples with each template that are intended to inspire you to make the designs your own. Plus, our templates are “magically mobile”, so you only design your site once and it will respond to any size screen or device, like magic.
But which template is right for you? That’s up to you! New accounts include access to all of our PhotoBiz 8 templates. You can personalize any of them to your style of business, and change it with just a few clicks when you need a refresh.
Let’s take a look at some of our most popular templates and what makes them stand out.
Family & newborn photography website template recommendations
We see many family and newborn photographers pick more compact website templates, meaning the margins of the website content are narrow, allowing the rest of the browser to utilize either a color or a texture to give a sense of comfort. Plus, these sites often feature clean white linens and flowery pinks to give a softness to the site. Combined, these elements result in nurturing vibes, which can be comforting to potential clients.
Some standout templates with samples that feature family and newborn photographers include:
These templates are styled from the start to represent family and newborn photography businesses. You can use these templates as is (with the addition of your own text and images, of course) or style them how you like with your own colors, fonts, and more.
Alternative website templates for family and newborn photographers:
Senior photographers often take a bold approach. Your clients often react best to striking colors and large editorial (like a magazine) text and images. We love seeing what senior photographers come up with because it’s always something new. You can be classic and minimal in design or use funky background patterns, glittery gold touches, and more. Typically, we’ve found that senior photography businesses use templates that go the full-width of the browser window.
Some standout template samples that feature senior photographers include:
Wedding and engagement photographer websites range in style but overall have a very light feeling to them, meaning they look delicate and use light colors and textures. This creates a soft and dreamy mood that feels romantic. They often use script and/or serif fonts to add to the storybook feeling wedding photographers try to capture.

These too are styled from the start with wedding photographers in mind. You can see there is a lot of versatility with PhotoBiz’s website templates.

It also creates a sense of professionalism and expertise. You can tell that the artist makes the work special for their clients.
