Today's share comes from Toki of Toki Lee Photography. She writes, "I wanted to make a keepsake book from a recent 'vintage' inspired family session held at Griffith Observatory and Traveltown in Los Angeles. I had so much fun putting this book together and I couldn't believe how quickly I was able to complete this project! The Mr. Big Album has sections for signatures since it was originally designed as a guestbook, but it was SO easy to replace those sections with my images. I really love the way this book turned out and it's a great way to showcase all of our favorites images from this session. It was very easy to create my book from start to finish in absolutely no time! I love how Design Aglow's products not only save me precious time, but you guys also make me look so good! Thanks DA!"
We love this fun vintage album, Toki! Enjoy your $75 gift certificate in the shop~
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.
