Today's share comes from Jessie of J. Passon Artistic Portraiture. She says, "I wanted to write and share with you how much I love the templates for the mini accordions. Not only are the elements super easy to customize, but I have found so many other uses for them. Client gifts are one of my favorite things to design and create--mostly because the client has no idea a gift is coming their way! A little while ago I needed a client gift and used my Visual Poetry templates to create it. All it took was a little resizing, some custom text and colors and I quickly had a 5x5 print that I ordered mounted on styrene. My client was in love with the final result and could easily prop the print on an easel or shelf."
Thanks again for templates that are so easy to customize!" Thanks for the cute share, Jessie! Enjoy your $75 Design Aglow shopping spree on us~
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.
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.
