design aglow diaries: new studio open house & gearing up for summer

design-aglow-diaries-052214-1

It’s been a jet fueled couple of weeks here at Design Aglow. From our recent obsession with Pinterest which launched the creation of our first Pin to Win contest (hurry, it ends the 26th!), to the launch of two brand new gorgeous products, to a fabulous Open House hosted in our new Portland studio earlier this week (two words: donut bar)... we’re gearing up for a fun and fast-paced summer. Bring on the Vitamin D (just don’t forget your sunscreen)! For months we have been looking forward to getting to know our Portland community. And we finally were able to say hi to 50+ Portlander photographer friends at the Open House on Monday, along with our industry guest of honor, Finao. The Open House was a blast! We enjoyed mingling with creative locals in between bites of donuts. Portland-based Blue Star Donuts, aka our new BFFs, catered the event with fan favorites such as Maple Bacon and PB&J and our office personal fave, Blueberry Bourbon Basil. If you were able to swing by, we loved seeing you and can’t wait to do it again soon! As you know, we are fiercely dedicated to helping improve your personal and professional workflow so you can juggle everything better while saving time and money. In the past month we’ve released not just one but TWO game changing marketing products we are loving right now: the one-of-a-kind Virtual Postcards and gorgeous Hand Lettered Poster Printables. Both are customizable, and both are complete Design Aglow originals — you won’t see anything like them on the market! Be sure to stay tuned this summer… we’ve got some BIG things coming up! Until next time~ design-aglow-diaries-052214-3 design-aglow-diaries-052214-4 design-aglow-diaries-052214-5 design-aglow-diaries-052214-6 design-aglow-diaries-052214-7 design-aglow-diaries-052214-8

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.
