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!

As a portrait photographer that specializes in Motherhood & Young Family, much of my work involves maternity imagery. I think this season of life is amazing and SO important to capture on film but lots of new moms couldn’t feel less into the idea!  I get so many moms pregnant with their second child telling me they wish they had just gone ahead and made maternities during their first pregnancy. They usually say they didn’t feel beautiful at the time, were so uncomfortable or just didn’t see a good reason to do it at the time but now have a lot of regret over missing out on those memories.

We’re having a huge sale on all of our almost perfect Big Picture Planners! Huzzah!

But wait. What does “almost perfect” mean? Well, these are the planners that have teeny tiny aesthetic defects. Don’t worry! They haven’t been totally wrecked, they just have small ink marks or scratches that occurred during transit to our office. You can see images of these small damages below.
