Today's fun share comes from Samantha of Bubs 'n Belles by Sam Photography. She writes, "I used the Ultimate Album Builder templates as a starting point for a First Birthday album for a client. I then added the adorable flower element from the Teenage Fan Club Senior Graduation Cards and a couple of Hand-Drawn Photo Frames to create an album that is both unique and whimsical, perfect for a baby girl's first birthday album.
I love ALL of Design Aglow's products! They are so flexible and easy to use, and can be used on more than one type of product. The Ultimate Album Builder is an absolute must for people who design albums on a regular basis. The variety of templates available ensures that you will find the perfect layouts for your album. The drag and drop option makes it so easy to create an album in a jiffy! I absolutely LOVE the Hand Drawn Photo Frames. They add a cute whimsical touch to any product, including this album design! The card templates available on Design Aglow are not only great for designing cards, but the modern design elements are also perfect for including in other products! Keep up the fantastic work, Design Aglow!"

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.
