My name is Anna, and I'm the Lead Writer at Design Aglow. Along with the rest of the team, I write for our website and blog, create copy for our products, and help define and refine the Design Aglow voice. I'm also a mother to two girls and a professional photographer, two crucial points that shape the way I look at the world (and Design Aglow!).

Read on for the newest in a series of posts that highlight a product that I think is particularly awesome, or a hidden gem from our archives that I think you should revisit. If you have any questions or suggestions for me, please share them in the comments!

I am a Facebook sloth. Really: I update my profile picture maybe once a year, never share vacation photos, and only upload pics of my kids through the Instagram sharing feature.

When Facebook announced its cover photo feature, the only thing that kept that 851x315 px spot from remaining a giant blob is a Design Aglow Timeline Cover.

Perfectly designed for Facebook's cover photo specifications, our Facebook Timeline Covers' layered PSD files make creating a new cover--or swapping out photographs on a seasonal or monthly basis--a five-minute task. (Creating a new cover actually took me 6 minutes and 15 seconds. Because I'm a sloth.) And with 24 different designs, now bundled together in one special collection, Facebook butterflies can change their look at (five) moment's notice.

With so many styles to choose from, you can quickly create a custom timeline cover for each client, for each session, for each season. As a sweet thank-you gift, a “remember me?” marketing gesture, or a value-added product, the Facebook Timeline Covers serve as viral advertising for your brand and portfolio. See what goodwill you can create by sending out ten timelines to your best clients, then share your success stories on our Facebook page. So easy, even a sloth can use them!

About eight years ago, I was reading a recipe blog and somehow ended up on the blogger’s photography posts. I spent a ton of time going through her photography posts and just couldn’t stop thinking about how I had to give it a try too! My husband (who is amazingly supportive) got on board immediately and we bought a camera. From there, I read, practiced, and photographed family and friends, and it naturally spiraled into what it has become today.

As a romantic-style photographer, I want to capture real, emotive love. My style is modern and organic; I want to give clients butterflies, I want to see tears... of joy of course! I want to show happiness, love, and romance. I love presenting clients with emotion-filled images.
