"I’ve worked with Heather for a year and a half and highly recommend her. She is very knowledgeable, organized, and responsive. On top of that, she is an accomplished photographer, whose artistic sensibilities I trust and respect. That allows me to delegate creative decisions to her, which is a huge bonus."

Heather was recommended to me by a friend and from day one, the process was so easy and seamless. On our first meeting, she accessed my needs, ideas, and my overall vision of how I wanted my website to look so it would best reflect my business and brand. Heather was extremely detailed, professional, and creative, and I am so thrilled with the final product.

Websites With Squarespace
I work with you to design a Squarespace website that is streamlined, sophisticated, easy to update, and easy for blogging. I am drawn to sleek and minimal designs with impactful photos or illustrations – an influence from my photography and curating background. I also update existing Squarespace websites.

It was amazing how quickly my fabulous new website came together once I started working with Heather! She combines an extensive knowledge of website platforms and impressive technical know-how with a great sense of design and aesthetics. But the best thing about working with Heather is that she’s a great listener who strives to achieve what you think you want while gently making you aware of possibilities you didn’t know existed.

"Having a consistent, thoughtful and professional (yet personal) social media presence is a must these days. A must that takes a lot of thought and care. Heather Polley has been an invaluable asset to me in that regard. She understands my social media needs and strikes the perfect balance between working on her own (and hence saving me a lot of work) and checking in with me on details. It takes a lot of trust to outsource social media posting and this trust is well placed in Heather. I recommend her highly."
