Jayne Rohlfing has a great idea for archiving our blogs as tangible keepsakes. She writes, "I know this isn't your typical inspirational send-in, but I was just so excited I had to share. I am in the process of converting my family blog to a book. I've just begun ... at 2006!
After laying out all the pages myself I was really too tired to put any thought into a cover design and title page. I was tempted to just throw some text on there and be done with it. Thankfully I remembered my Design Aglow Mix and Match Designer Album action templates and before I knew it had easily put together a simple, yet beautiful cover. I received my book today and it looks so great it's given me motivation to continue on with my conversions. Thanks Design Aglow for helping me out on my family projects too!"
Hi! Tell us a little bit about yourself. What was your road like to becoming a photographer?
Hello! I am a portrait photographer based south of Boston, MA. My passion is capturing mothers and their growing families. Maternity and newborn portraits are the foundation of my business, and I also capture baby milestones, children, and families. Fun fact: I returned the diamond earrings my husband bought me for our first Christmas as a married couple to buy a digital camera.
When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.
There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.
