Kelly works very hard to make sure you are getting the end product that you want for your website and fitting that into your budget. Full of great ideas and energy. Always a pleasure to work with. She has built and maintained my last two websites and I will continue to use her services.
We were in the market for a decent, quick, professional designer for our music tour flyers. We were in a crunch for time and needed to find someone who could get what we needed done, fast, but also with the look we were looking for! Kelly at Website Gurl has been the answers that we needed! She not only was decent, but she was over the top with the fonts and styles we had in mind! She was able to get multiple designs completed in the time frames we needed! This was huge for us because we were going on tour in a matter of days! We love working with Kelly; I strongly recommend her and her work! She won’t let you down!
Kelly Heck is a centerpiece for Taneytown and Carrol County with her investment in community, her concern for her clients, and the trust she has developed in the business network. Her persona defines the integrity of her talent and professional demeanor. Kelly is a TRUE PROFESSIONAL WHO CARES ABOUT OTHERS.
Kelly has helped me for over four years now. I came to her after my son passed away. I was in the process of starting a foundation to help youth and young adults who were struggling with addiction. I was extremely vulnerable and needed guidance from someone that I could trust to help me to get my website created. From the beginning, Kelly listened to my needs and used her knowledge to create a website that continues to help my foundation grow. Recently, I hired Kelly to do a photo shoot for a new project I am working on. The process of setting up the appointment was smooth and professional, and she made the photo shoot fun and comfortable. The pictures turned out amazing! I would recommend Kelly to anyone looking for professional photography. Thank you Kelly, for continuing to be a part of my journey.
When Sylvia Blair, owner of Blair Copywriting and Communications, LLC, needed to create a website to launch her communications and writing business, she immediately called Kelly Heck at Website GURL.
Sylvia had some unique challenges in starting her first website. She wanted great photos for the website, which had never appeared online before. Kelly offered the idea of an artsy photo session with props that represent the art of writing. Kelly and Sylvia gathered fancy pens, a hard-bound writing journal, a hot red tablet and designer eyeglasses.
Kelly and Sylvia positioned the props attractively on a solid wood table. Kelly put her lighting and composition skills to work to create some photo magic. These original images now adorn the banner of the website.
Kelly also helped Sylvia to construct the site with easy navigation, eye-catching headlines, and useful info about how to hire a writer. They developed about us, portfolio, bio and “contact us” pages. Sylvia did the writing and Kelly did the design.
Completion of the project was speedy. The final product was awesome!

We engaged Kelly to assist with the creation of our website, utilizing her unique “Website Development Day”. This gave us the opportunity to do far more than get a simple website online, as we were able to tailor the site in real time, having the site come to life before our eyes as we worked with Kelly on design choices, graphics selection, and the fine-tuning of the page narrative. She was also generous with her knowledge, explaining the importance of keywords, meta data, and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) to improve the ranking of the site on the various search engines. We are now receiving qualified calls regularly as a result of having a properly structured site, which would not have been possible in such a short time without Kelly’s knowledgeable assistance!
Kelly did a fantastic job helping us update both of our websites! Our websites were extremely outdated and she helped guide us through the creation process along with gathering all marketing information and images we would need. She taught us everything there is from the initial set up to maintaining our website. Kelly is full of knowledge and the ideal teacher! Kelly is very prompt on answering any questions we have or jumps right in to complete changes above my knowledge. If you’re looking to create or update your website, Kelly is your GURL!
The Tree of Friends Foundation (ToFF) talked with several vendors regarding the redesign of our website before contracting with Kelly Heck. Kelly was undoubtedly the most personable and helpful, even on that early phone consultation. Before we ever met or even had a signed contract, Kelly was giving us guidance on what to ask and consider during the selection process. We felt like we had a great game plan just from that consult.
Since the members of ToFF are all volunteers, our website build required a day out of the office for those involved. The Website Development Day (a single day where we walked in with a plan and walked out with a beautiful new website) was the perfect option for us. Kelly not only helped us create a very professional website, perfectly meeting our needs, but also provided solid recommendations throughout the build to further enhance our site.
The entire day could have been draining and exhausting, but Kelly made it fun and we left rejuvenated with a renewed sense of purpose. She really got to know our organization which is reflected in our new site. She also ensured that we had all of the tools to maintain our new site and reiterated that she’s only a phone call or email away.
ToFF couldn’t be happier with our new site. Thank you for making our vision a reality!
Kelly Heck of Website Gurl did a fantastic job with our ‘Website Development Day’ where we worked as a team to design my new website, www.AMPUpHealth.com.
Kelly is amazing – so positive and patient – the ideal teacher! Kelly thoroughly explained the process and all details to me. Best of all, Kelly welcomed any and all of my questions. Kelly is very creative and had numerous ideas to enhance my Website, Business Card, and Rack Card. Kelly adds finesse and pizzazz to all her work.
Central Maryland Rehabilitation Services contracted with Kelly Heck to help host and design our website but gained a lot more than a professionally designed website! Kelly listened to our concerns and learned about our product and the image we needed to display on our site. She was very personable and made it comfortable for a non tech savvy individual to learn and understand what needed to be done to have a successful website. During the development stages Kelly could have easily said, “Just email-me”, but she was always available and willing to meet with me when I needed extra guidance. I really appreciated that time and felt like a valued customer.
Another way Kelly personally helped us create a professional website design was through her magnificent photography. She traveled and set up her studio in our site making it convenient for our busy staff to be photographed [Team Headshots]. Kelly was a professional photographer through and through paying meticulous attention to detail with each and every portrait! We continue to have many compliments on our staff portraits and are proud to refer them to Kelly Heck!
Thank you Kelly for your guidance, professionalism, continued support and your friendship!”
I wanted to thank you for the fabulous website you created for my company.
Your creativity and resourcefulness were critical to designing my site that is user friendly, pleasant to the eye, colorful, and very informative for the viewing public.
I have received a lot of compliments on my site and I attribute it to your talents for creative design.
I was surprised at how easy you made it seem and how quickly we went from our initial meeting to a great website that was up and running.
Thanks for the great work!!
I love your style and admire your talent. Keep up the good work and know I will always be first in line to recommend your services.
Kelly introduced herself as, “I’m Kelly Heck, like what the Heck…” and I knew she was going to be a fun person to get to know. In meeting up at other events learning more about her passion for photography and web design we have since become friends in business – really helping me with SEO work and given me great tips on how to better optimize my website. Doing so has helped my business not only be seen by more people, but we are getting more sales too. In other words – her advice and help does pay for itself and more! I highly recommend her services and that is why I am posting this, not because she asked, but because she is a funny, easy to get along with business woman where if she can help me, she could easily help you whether it is just advice or help in creating a personal or business website (and more). You go gurl!!.
I have known Kelly since she began her photography business. Kelly did my first business headshot in her studio years ago. She was able to capture who I am – and I have never photographed well ’til she took it. It was great. It will be time once again, and she will be my choice!
As a member of the Taneytown Chamber of Commerce, I am very pleased with her design of our website. Easy to find the right business person with whom to speak. Thanks Kelly, I use it all the time.
Every aspect of the website construction from initial planning meeting to photography session to getting all of the content set up and looking sharp went very smoothly. Kelly is a pleasure to work with and helped us achieve our goal of a professional appearing and informational website.
Kelly made the whole process of going from my camera’s automatic settings to manual settings easier than I thought possible. She explained ISO, aperture, lighting, and importance of pleasing proportions in my composition. Kelly also showed me how to edit my photos to bring out the best in them. I feel so grown up now and my photos look amazing! Thanks so much!
Kelly Heck designed the website for Target Community & Educational Services, Inc. She did a fantastic job, stayed within work timeframes and always responded to emails, calls, and questions quickly. We continue to get many compliments about the design and ease of use of our website. We also hired Kelly to take photographs at a recent fundraising event. The pictures were great! I highly, without reservation, recommend Kelly for your website and photography needs! She is wonderful to work with.
