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).

    • We were a little distracted from work this week by this live feed of a newborn horse (need we say more?) from photographer Jodie Otte. Cuteness overload.
     
    • 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

    From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.

    My business goals have changed a lot over the last few years. This year, my hope is to work on a handful of commercial projects with companies I believe in, and to carve out more time to work on personal projects. Both are important, but I believe growth and your creative voice is developed when you let your imagination run free without the constraints of it being “work.”

    I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
