Welcome to Design Aglow’s new bi-weekly blog series: Coffee Break with Design Aglow Every other Friday we will be sharing a highlight reel of what we talked about over our coffee here at the office. Won’t you grab a macaroon, snuggle up with a kitten and join us in a much-needed work break? You deserve it. 

In case you can’t tell by now, here at Design Aglow we’ve been a little obsessed with donuts as of late. Which is why we had a donut bar at our Open House on Monday, obviously. Portland superstar Blue Star Donuts catered the event, which was a smashing success by the way — over 50 new and old friends came out to see our Portland space and munch on the best donuts we’ve ever tasted (move over Voodoo).

    • One of the most unique (and inspiring!) Kickstarter campaigns we’ve seen floated through our feeds this week: an Australian woman is attempting to change the way we view our bodies. She has already reached her Kickstarter funding for a proposed documentary but her project is definitely worth taking a gander at!
        Have a wonderful weekend~ xoxo, The Design Aglow Team

    I’ve been taking photographs ever since I can remember, but once I entered the world of wedding photography I felt the need to really understand my gear. Once you really learn your tools, you can worry less about the technical side and focus on putting your vision into that single frame. I feel the faster I can work, and the more intuitively I know my equipment, the more creative I can be. Wedding photography can make you a pro really fast. I think that artistic pressure is what drove me towards it.

    As a lifelong fine artist, I didn’t fall in love with photography until post-college. I was a graphic design major who landed a non-creative position in the industry. Upon searching for a creative outlet, and being the hopeless romantic that I am, I discovered wedding photography and was immediately hooked. I poured everything I had into learning the medium so that I could eventually start my own business, which happened a couple of years later in 2012 — also the year I was married.

    I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Portland, but catering to clients across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. As a child, I never imagined that I would pursue photography.

I used my college textbook money to buy my first Canon Rebel from Craigslist. I was jumping up and down with joy and scratching my head at the same time because I knew photography would not be simply a hobby.
