Design Aglow Diaries: New Orleans, LA to Wichita Falls, TX

Our morning started a bit late again in New Orleans, as we reloaded the dog and cat into the car and searched for Bourbon Street and Cafe du Monde. We grabbed a quick snap of both, but ended up bypassing beignets this time; something about a heap of fried dough and powdered sugar wasn’t the most appealing at 8 am with a long journey ahead. We promise we’ll try some next time though! As we made our way through Louisiana we watched the landscape turn from cityscape to barren and wintery trees, grooving along to some Duran Duran (yesterday was a 90’s kind of day). We also watched as a metal fire pit flew out of the back of someone’s trailer and beelined it's way to our car. We swerved, but unfortunately were attacked by part of the metal monstrosity and had to pull over to assess the damage. Fortunately, no one was hurt (except the car) and the police officer was quick to get to us in the middle of nowhere. An hour and a half later we were on the road again, a little shaken but with a newfound energy to keep going! Alas, we passed the Texas state line and made our way through Dallas, stopping for the night in a little town called Wichita Falls. We’re hoping to make some more progress tomorrow with a few of the setbacks we had today, but we’re well rested and ready to go. See you on #designaglowdiaries tomorrow! - Lauren & Carry

Both are important, but I believe growth and your creative voice is developed when you let your imagination run free without the constraints of it being “work.”

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.
