Today's fun share is from Jessie of J. Passon Artistic Portraiture. She writes, "I recently purchased the Cotton Candy Baby Announcements, and though I do plan to use them for some new custom announcements...they came in handy for a completely different project. I have been networking with a local high end hair salon for almost two years now. After a meeting with the owner, we came up with some new ideas to generate more business for each other. While our branding, logo colors and overall style are very different, our target market of clientele and customer service style are very much the same. It was my job to come up with a gift certificate and label for a gift bag that the salon will give to their clients that are expecting a baby. The salon contributes a bottle of Paul Mitchell baby shampoo and I contribute a certificate towards a newborn or baby session. I used elements from the Cotton Candy Announcements to marry our colors and create a "logo" of sorts that works to represent the salon and my studio. The owner loved the final product and I am confident that their clients will too! Leave it to Design Aglow to create products that are so versatile that they can bring together two businesses with completely different styles. Thank you so much!"

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.
