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

The formula is simple.

clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer

We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.

Where's The Money?

Here’s a saying we find really annoying: “do what you love, and the money will follow. Umm, nope. If we asked every photographer out there if they are working hard, they would say yes. But if we asked every photographer out there if they are raking in the big bucks, many would say no.
