design aglow diaries: dallas to albuquerque

 

A good night's sleep made all the difference in the world. We woke up in our Dallas hotel refreshed and rested. Headed to Northpark Center for a stroll and breakfast (and Starbucks. Of course). Northpark Center is really interesting; it's a mall that's also an art museum. Once we left Dallas we were out into the great emptiness (with trains!). Walked around a bit at the [closed for the evening] New Mexico Welcome Center. (This is my only "new" state for this trip.) Stretching is always good, but holding hands is my favorite way to relax. The sun started to go down as the landscape started to change. At first it was blinding, but ended up being beautiful. And we found a gas station sitting by itself right off of the interstate, hawking Route 66 mementos and sporting ancient gas pumps (with the clicking numbers and retro styling-- wait, vintage, not retro). It was also the local general store... and the post office.  Made it Albuquerque just in time to collapse into bed. Exploring tomorrow! xoxo Emily, Pogo Photo Remember to follow the #designaglowdiaries hashtag to see our adventures!

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.
