The Big Picture Planner has been helping hundreds of photographers to stay organized and achieve their goals. We are ecstatic about the positive feedback we are receiving! Lisa of Lisa Tait Photography shares, "I’ve purchased many products from Design Aglow (and will likely purchase many more!) but this one has been the most fun to buy, customize and utilize. It totally satisfies my Type A left brain but still ignites my creative right brain. It’s the perfect union of form and function.

I’ve been able to customize it to suit my branding and my needs (and wants!) - I've included a monthly check list, a blog schedule, a local business contacts page, some collage pages for free-thought and tactile clippings… and more. Even better, the Facebook group associated with this is full of positive, creative people who have even more incredible ideas for customization, how to use it and where to buy or make some of the accoutrements. This group has gone beyond the planner to become a supportive area for entrepreneurs to float ideas and discuss business challenges. The tutorial and templates were easy to use and I love that there are InDesign files included with products like these - it make it so simple to change text and customize color. The beginning of the year is a great time to reflect on where you have been and charge forward towards all you want to accomplish. Having a plan is essential to making this successful, but if you aren’t equipped to implement it then a plan can easily gather dust. Having a planner like the Big Picture Planner makes you want to use it. When you consult your plan - daily, weekly, monthly - it helps you stay on track. It allows you to be objective about your business and keep those blue sky items in mind while breaking down the everyday tasks it takes to get there. This thing is chock-full of useful tools that cover all gamuts of your business and keeps it all in one place - from big picture goal planning to marketing trackers to lists of recommended reading and even a place for income & expenses to help you stay on top of your funds…the Big Picture Planner is far more than a planner - it is a small business bible."

Let's face it, we've all gotten that email that asks us if we offer holiday/off-season/Sunday/dog's birthday discounts. As a girl who loves shopping clearance racks, I get it, I love me a good sale... but always being asked to discount your prices can be disheartening and devaluing as a creative. We already struggle with putting a price on our art, how the heck are we going to make any money if we don't charge profitable prices.

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!
