Design Aglow templates are meant to make your life easier, so that you can spend less time in front of your computer and more time doing what you love - shooting and spending time with your family! Jessie of J. Passon Artistic Portraiture shares, "I use Design Aglow templates for my own personal projects as much as I do for my business. Last month we had a joint birthday party for two of our daughters and when designing the invitation, thank you cards and various signs for the party I went right to my Design Aglow templates. Knowing that several of the guests are clients of my studio as well, I like to make sure that what I create and produce is professional all around. One of my very favorite features of the Design Aglow templates is that I can use just one element of a design layout if I want to, I don't have to use the whole template if it doesn't fit my need. Bringing a few different elements from different Design Aglow templates really allows me to create a unique piece, whether it is for my client or myself. I was able to use a border from the Kiss and Tell Borders, an element and a background design from the Multipurpose Cards: Letterpress Look templates and then a Text Accessory to create a custom invitation, thank you note and signs for the party tables. I quickly customized the colors for each and was able to maintain consistency and a 'WOW' impact! Friends and clients raved about the invitation, thank you notes and how everything pulled together. A special thanks to Design Aglow for helping me impress those closest to me...and my studio!"
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.
