Design Aglow Diaries: The Journey Begins

Post2_LeavingV3

Why Portland?

Design Aglow was founded in South Florida in 2006 and headquartered here since the start. Most of our team is located in West Palm Beach, with a few more team members sprinkled about the US and many partners around the globe. The main office is where we generate our biggest ideas, but we have always been understaffed and struggling to do more. We haven’t been able to find the type of creative talent we crave.

The past year has begun a growth cycle for us, with two major book publications, our new Frame and Paper Shops, and some more projects that are still top secret.

A few months ago, we began thinking about where we are and where we want to be…since we still have a lot of growing to do!

We need to be in a place with creatives and tech talent, one that inspires us, excites us, and makes us want to connect with our industry even more. We love the West Coast vibe, the innovative mindset, and the unlimited potential you feel just *being* there.

So after months of planning, off we go! Follow team members Lauren and Carry (with the #designaglowdiaries hashtag) as they leave this week by car with a dog and cat in tow. See you soon!

Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping. My road to becoming a photographer isn't a very poetic or adventurous story: I was a painter and had always pursued the thought of going to school for fine art. I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!

One thing we love about living in Portland is the strong emphasis on sustainability and a genuine concern for the environment. The natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest has obviously inspired locals to care and take action, to protect the lushness surrounding them. The name of the game here is conservation and preservation - with multiple trash/recycle/compost bin options in every restaurant and coffee shop, to chicken coops adorning backyards aplenty. We’re so pleased to see this positive trend hit the design and technology spheres, as hard copies become a thing of the past and the Cloud becomes the Internet’s new storage bin.

I’m Cheyenne, and I’m a body positive, self love boudoir photographer based in Philadelphia. I love my mama, my puppy girl Penny, my babe, and cheesesteaks. When I was 13, I picked up my first camera. Two years later I started a little business photographing families, babies, and a very tiny wedding! I continued to shoot through my time in art school and eventually decided to fully dive into creating a well rounded business for myself. I left college after my junior year and worked my butt off to build up my business.
