In your busy life of shooting, editing, marketing and running a business, Design Aglow is here to help you succeed! With easy to use templates full of professionally designed layouts, your studio is guaranteed to look its' best. Becki of Becki Walker Photography shares her success story: "Where do I begin?! My goal this year was two-fold: create a brand that others wanted to be a part of and an experience that screamed "I want THAT!" While brainstorming and daydreaming, I knew I wanted to "wow" my potential clients and to honor those who chose me in the past. Knowing what, where, when, and how to achieve and communicate your brand right "out the front door" can be so overwhelming! There are so many great resources, so many helpful tutorials, classes, and templates; all 'must-haves' that can help a business grow. But I wanted one. One thing that could grow my business, one thing that could communicate ME and my heart behind my business to those in my city, while maintaining a level of professionalism to my client interactions and my brand.
I chose to use your Luxe Magazine template to market to my senior clients. I tweaked it a bit to make it my own, but I cannot tell you how easy, helpful, beautiful, and all around incredible it was to have a professional template that was perfect as it came. The professional way words were communicated, the simple and clean format, and the ease of plugging in my images were all used to help me sleep easy at night! I kid you not: this magazine changed my life. If I could hug you all right now, I would. It changed my business this year. It took me from "We love her work!" to "We want to be a part of THAT!" I used it on ISSUU as an online way to communicate what I wished I could say to every potential in a coffee shop meeting: the WHO behind the camera. I used separate pages as PDFs to share collections through e-mail. And my favorite piece was sending my printed copy (MagCloud) with my senior models to their high schools. My past clients and current models who were featured loved seeing themselves in print, and this alone prompted them to mention me to friends, show off their photos, and refer me! Words cannot express my thanks for your products. I use quite a few templates. I love that they come perfect as they are, but are easy to customize (I have a family version of this magazine template in the works now!). I love that my clients love them. I love that they have helped shape my brand, and I can confidently say that Design Aglow had a hand in growing my business this year. Thank you for being a part of my story!"

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.
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.
