Kristen Kalp of Essential Imagery has such a fun studio and incorporates many Design Aglow products in her mix...all customized to suit her colorful look!
Kristen says, "I wanted to let you know that, while I don't have pretty pictures of it, the Design Aglow Pro Select Plug-In has made me at LEAST $700 per session, and my sales have more than doubled since I implemented it. My average is hovering around $2K, which makes me and my bank account crazy happy! My humble thanks and utmost congratulations on creating the best product to hit digital photography since...the digital camera. Happy holidays, and keep shining, Kristen"
I also spy some of the following goodies in these shots: cool orange felt placements nailed to the wall for wallpaper, Design Aglow Artist's Elements on canvases and on Finao portfolio boxes (great idea!), our Inspire Guide: Portrait Displays as a Finao image portfolio (another fab idea!).
From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.
I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
