The reviews are in for the Design Aglow Posing Guide

The Design Aglow Posing Guide for Family Portrait Photography, published by Random House, is in bookstores now. Have you received your copy? With guidance from 19 acclaimed photographers, you're bound to be inspired by the beautiful images and practical, concrete advice! Hear what other photographers are saying about this great resource: "When it comes to photography books, the better ones typically fall into one (but only one) of these categories: strong on technical info, strong on inspiration and/or theory, or strong on sample images. Happily for me, this guide excels on all three counts! The images are stunning, and the accompanying text gives not only the actual camera settings, but also specific tips on working your subjects into the illustrated poses, suggestions for ALTERNATE ideas in the same setting, and practical "housekeeping" tips (such as warming a surface with a warm heating pad to make it comfy for baby). The book is arranged in sections according to age, number of subjects, and relationships. I can honestly recommend this resource without hesitation! It will surely be one of the most-used books on my shelf. Oh yes, it's also beautifully produced." - MCS3015 (via Amazon) "Just received my book yesterday and am eating up the images and the guidance! Great for beginning photographers as well as seasoned photographers who need some new inspiration! Lena is the best of the best with a down to earth style. This book makes you feel that and want to BE that!" - Julee Quinn (via Amazon) "This is a wonderful book full of great inspiration. It is very well put together with lovely imagery from renowned photographers all over the world." - Paul (via Amazon)

Hi, I'm Casey, a floral and visual designer, specializing in creating stylized events and gatherings. More than that, I love putting together visuals for retail and residential spaces utilizing natural components and botanical elements. Serving as the Creative Director for PlantShed, a full service, floral boutique in Manhattan, I have worked closely with high fashion and couture designers, bespoke interior design firms, and textile companies to help produce cohesive and thoughtful designs. While typically inspired by nature and organic shapes, I enjoy experimenting with more structured design concepts, botanical textures, and other far-reaching design aesthetics. But I never really meant to live in New York City. I came here in 2011 to spend a summer and potentially expand my career as a floral designer. Landing odd jobs and working freelance in the industry was exciting and stressful at first, though I eventually found a home at PlantShed, a New York based floral and plant company. So, let me tell you about PlantShe

I started my photography career in 1990 and, as expected from a traditional film photographer, my career followed a familiar path that transitioned to shooting digital. What you might not expect is that I still embrace the traditional medium of film; in fact, it now lies at the heart of the images we create at Cooper Photography. I've encountered many milestones over the years, but what I could not have foreseen were the three notable changes that saw me move full circle:
