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

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:
