My name is Anna, and I'm the Lead Writer at Design Aglow. Along with the rest of the team, I write for our website and blog, create copy for our products, and help define and refine the Design Aglow voice. I'm also a mother to two girls and a professional photographer, two crucial points that shape the way I look at the world (and Design Aglow!).

Read on for the newest in a series of posts that highlight a product that I think is particularly awesome, or a hidden gem from our archives that I think you should revisit. If you have any questions or suggestions for me, please share them in the comments!

I am a Facebook sloth. Really: I update my profile picture maybe once a year, never share vacation photos, and only upload pics of my kids through the Instagram sharing feature.

When Facebook announced its cover photo feature, the only thing that kept that 851x315 px spot from remaining a giant blob is a Design Aglow Timeline Cover.

Perfectly designed for Facebook's cover photo specifications, our Facebook Timeline Covers' layered PSD files make creating a new cover--or swapping out photographs on a seasonal or monthly basis--a five-minute task. (Creating a new cover actually took me 6 minutes and 15 seconds. Because I'm a sloth.) And with 24 different designs, now bundled together in one special collection, Facebook butterflies can change their look at (five) moment's notice.

With so many styles to choose from, you can quickly create a custom timeline cover for each client, for each session, for each season. As a sweet thank-you gift, a “remember me?” marketing gesture, or a value-added product, the Facebook Timeline Covers serve as viral advertising for your brand and portfolio. See what goodwill you can create by sending out ten timelines to your best clients, then share your success stories on our Facebook page. So easy, even a sloth can use them!

When I think of packaging and products for my brand, I think of high‑end pieces that will not only provide a remarkable experience for my clients, but also leave them with beautiful pieces for their home. I purchased Design Aglow's engagement guest book design a long time ago and have since created many for my couples to display at their wedding. Of course, they are always packaged in beautiful boxes and bags!

One of the great things about running your own business is that, in theory, us business owners get to “call the shots”. We make all the decisions big and small, such as whether we run our business full or part-time, how and why we set our price points, the products we offer, our ideal clients, the list goes on.

As a photographer based in Charleston, SC, summer is my busiest time of the year. So instead of vacationing elsewhere, I like to escape in my own city for a few days at a time. Given that Charleston won the 2016  “World’s Best City” award by Travel & Leisure, after being a top city for the past four years, there’s plenty to see and do and see as a guest in my own city!
