Today's fan share comes from Katie of Kate Leigh. She writes, "I wanted to add some elegance to an album I was designing for my client but I wanted to keep it simple. The Le Petit Jardin Borders were the perfect finishing touch. They gave the album a "finished" feel, without making it look overdone. Without them, the album just felt like it was lacking something. Thank you so much for giving me that simple design that just seems impossible to come up with on my own!I've tried creating many design products myself but have found it nearly impossible. While I consider myself a creative person, there is definitely an art to design which I just apparently lack. Thanks to Design Aglow, I look as creative on the design front as I do on the photography front." Thanks for sharing, Katie! Your $75 gift certificate is on the way~
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.
