design aglow fan share: standing out in your market

share1 share2 share3 Shannon Grant shares her beautiful product images with us today. She writes, "As a brand-spanking new boutique photography business, I want to concentrate offer my clients little extras in order to make me stand out from the local crowd. When I first came across your blog, I was blown away! Your products are so gorgeous and are exactly what I need in order to differentiate myself from the competition. Here is how I used the Le Petit Jardin preview box and proof border templates. Inspired by another fan share, I ordered a proof book and jazzed it up with these two templates. I also included two mounted 5x5 prints as a gift to the parents. I'm going to drop these off along with the image cd today and I can't wait to see the look on mom's face when she opens the box and lays eyes on these little beauties. For a low cost, these extras are sure to create some buzz and get my business kick-started! Thank you Design Aglow for making it WAY easier to make unique, high quality products! I've never pretended to be a graphic designer but with your help... no one will ever know!"

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.

My business goals have changed a lot over the last few years. This year, my hope is to work on a handful of commercial projects with companies I believe in, and to carve out more time to work on personal projects. Both are important, but I believe growth and your creative voice is developed when you let your imagination run free without the constraints of it being “work.”
